Agarose spot migration assay to measure the chemoattractant potential of extracellular vesicles: applications in regenerative medicine and cancer metastasis

A study from the IVECAT group (led by Geivex founder Dr. Francesc E Borràs) B-ARGO and RCPB groups at IGTP has shown the potential of using an agarose-spot migration assay to analyse the chemoattractant capacity of Extracellular Vesicles (EVs) in vitro. The study has been recently published in BMC Biology. Increasing evidence suggests that cancer […]

Extracellular vesicles from the trematodes Fasciola hepatica and Dicrocoelium dendriticum trigger different responses in human THP-1 macrophages

A great work just published in The Journal of Extracellular Vesicles from the group of Dr Marcilla. Extracellular vesicles (EVs) released by the helminths Dicrocoelium dendriticum and Fasciola hepatica are important modulators of the host immune response, contributing to the establishment of the infection. Monocytes and, in particular, macrophages are major regulators of the inflammatory response and are likely […]
