Next-Generation Therapeutics: Extracellular Vesicles as Tools and Targets

02/07/2024 – ore 14:30



In this talk, I will present our latest results in the study of extracellular vesicles in various age-related disorders, such as cancer and osteoarthritis. We have identified new targets to combat drug resistance in cancer and to address inflammation and disease progression in osteoarthritis. The use of EVs enables us to deliver specific peptides and mRNA molecules to target cells, aiming to halt disease progression in osteoarthritis and to overcome drug resistance in cancer. Additionally, these EVs can function as biomarkers, enhancing their applicability in nanomedicine for disease control and the monitoring of disease progression.
