Exosomes, nano-sized extracellular vesicles (EVs) secreted by almost all cell types, are found in biological fluids and central nervous system tissues. Exosomes play an important role in normal cellular functions (e.g. cellular communication) as well as in various pathological conditions, and the fact that their contents change during disease makes them a particularly attractive target for diagnostic approaches. Alzheimer's disease (AD) is one of the most common neurodegenerative diseases. Exosomes have been reported to play multiple roles in AD.

Exosomes in Alzheimer's disease

AD is the most common form of dementia in the elderly, accounting for more than 60% of all memory disorders. AD characterized by increased β-amyloid peptide deposition and hyperphosphorylated tau aggregation in neurofibrillary tangles (NFTs) has become a serious public health problem due to its high rate of disability and its cognitive impairment, which is more severe than aging. The genesis and progression of AD are influenced by both genetic and environmental factors.

Notably, exosomes are involved in the process of AD development and play a multifaceted role in AD. Previous studies have shown that exosomes may facilitate the spread of AD in the brain by carrying pathogenic proteins. They may induce apoptosis of astrocytes, thereby impairing neuronal function during disease progression. On the other hand, exosomes have been reported to be implicated in the pathogenic protein clearance process. Exosomes appear to reduce the deposition of Aβ, one of the two symbolic pathological proteins of AD, in different ways. Moreover, previous studies have suggested that exosomes also help promote neurogenesis and reduce cognitive impairment. Exosomes can restore nerve function by increasing nerve density and inhibiting oxidative stress damage, and specific cellular and molecular mechanisms of exosomes in AD development need to be further investigated.

Our services can greatly support the following AD exosome research

  • Exosomes as a potential vehicle for drug delivery in AD
  • Exosomes as biomarkers in AD
  • Further research of exosomes in the development and progression of AD

With global aging, AD has become a serious public health problem. However, there is a lack of durable and complete strategies for the treatment of heterogeneous and complex AD. Therefore, approaches to reduce the current AD epidemic are becoming a major focus of human health care. As an important approach to intercellular communication, exosomes provide new perspectives on therapeutic and diagnostic strategies for AD. Thank you for your interest in our services.
