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 […]

Extracellular vesicles from pristane-treated CD38 deficient mice express and antiinflammatory neutrophil protein signature, which reflects the mild lupus severity elicited in these mice

This is an article published in Frontiers in Immunology, as part of the Research Topic:Extracellular Vesicles in Inflammatory Responses and Inflammation-AssociatedDiseases. Researchers from the Dept of Cellular Biology and Immunology, Institute ofParasitology and Biomedicine Lopez-Neyra (IPBLN), CSIC, Granada, present a studyof extracellular vesicles (EV). They analyze the protein composition, proteinabundance, and functional clustering of EV […]

Standardising the preanalytical reporting of biospecimens to improve reproducibility in extracellular vesicle research – A GEIVEX study

The standardization of clinical studies using extracellular vesicles (EVs) has mainly focused on the procedures employed for their isolation and characterization; however, preanalytical aspects of sample collection, handling and storage also significantly impact the reproducibility of results. We conducted an online survey based on SPREC (Standard PREanalytical Code) among members of GEIVEX (Grupo Español de […]

Exosomes loaded with ultrasmall Pt nanoparticles: a novel low-toxicity alternative to cisplatin

In this study, the group of Pilar Martín-Duque showed that a nanoscale vector based on ultrasmall PtNPs and exosomes exhibits antitumoral properties comparable or higher to those of the FDA approved cisplatin. They demonstrated their anticancer properties both in vitro and in vivo comparing the results obtained with the administration of equivalent amounts of cisplatin, […]
