Extracellular vesicles (EVs) are small molecules produced by most cells that may aid in cell communication. They can transfer functional biomolecules from one cell to the next, and even across the body. Exosomes are some of the most studied extracellular vesicle components. Many medications may be incorporated into exosomes and then disseminated to specific organs, tissues, and cells to provide tailored medication administration. According to a new study, exosomes, which are produced by cells, have a variety of functions and aims. Several studies have proven that a broad variety of cargo may be effectively transported to the precisely specified cells. For this reason, EVs are often used to carry medicinal substances as treatment. The researchers used exosomes that had been treated with additional chemicals to boost their transportability. Exosomes offer a number of advantages over other drug delivery technologies such as nanoparticle-based systems, liposomes, and even polymeric nanoparticles. Due to their similar nature to the body’s own cells, exosomes have no immunogenicity. Because of their nanoscale size, exosomes are the most promising strategy for medicine delivery to specific tissues and organs, and they have gotten the greatest attention in recent years. The ability of natural and manufactured exosomes to convey a variety of cargo to the target cell is investigated in this article.
