Conceptual overview of EVs and their associated effects on skin
News Release, Skin Aging & Challenges – July 8, 2022
Extracellular vesicles (EVs), naturally secreted by cells, act as mediators for communication between cells. They are transported to the recipient cells along with cargoes such as nucleic acids, proteins, and lipids that reflect the changes occurring within the parent cells.
EVs have been recognized as potential theranostic agents for diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis. In particular, the evidence accumulated to date suggests an important role of EVs in the initiation and progression of skin aging and various skin diseases, including psoriasis, systemic lupus erythematosus, vitiligo, and chronic wounds.
This review by Kim et al. highlights recent research that investigates the role of EVs and their potential as biomarkers and therapeutic agents for skin diseases and aging.
