Researchers report exosomes help neuron-to-neuron growth and the transfer of oligomer amyloid beta, resulting in apoptosis. The study reveals exosomes may be a primary mediator of the pathogenic progression of Alzheimer's disease.
According to researchers, exosomes can transport toxic aggregates of amyloid beta to new neurons in the brain.
Researchers have identified a unique biomarker in the blood of people with Multiple Sclerosis. Using a simple blood test, researchers were able to identify those with MS and discriminate between people at different stages of the disease.
Reducing the production of exosomes may help slow the progression of Alzheimer's disease.
Findings provide a quicker and less invasive way to identify impending cognitive decline and begin treatment before dementia is established.
Researchers discover exosomes stimulate neurons on three fundamental levels.
