Reality Check on Stem Cell Exosomes for Regeneration

I have high hopes that Stem Cell exosomes will prove to be the Thor’s Hammer for regeneration and a tool for greatly extended lifespan. Like most hopes, realty is generally more complex than hope envisioned. Stewing up vast batches of stem cell exosomes to be used by all for indefinite health span may take a bit longer than I had imagined. However, current research is showing vast potential for curative and regenerative therapies in nearly every area of medical science. While current research has focused on Mesenchymal Stem Cell Extra-cellular Vesicles (EVs.) and Exosomes, potentially all stem cell types can be farmed for specialized EVs. These can be loaded with customized iRNAs or enzymes or other drug molecules to target various diseases, or the membranes modified to seek out and find specific cells in specific organs. Efficacy against many diseases has already been validated in human and animal models, and most risks seen in Stem Cell therapies are avoided.

There are Technical challenges to overcome with regard to scaling up to industrial volumes and quality control standards and to validate therapies and treatment practices, but the potential for application of these tools is expanding rapidly. This will change the world of health care and put many currently incurable diseases in the rear-view mirror. Fightaging.org has a good write-up, and you can download the referenced study for a more detailed prospective.
