Pharmaceutical Grade MSC Exosomes
The benefits of regenerative medicine
Utilizing exosomes for a variety of physical and functional benefits.
Preclinical studies indicate that the naturally occurring proteins, messenger RNA and microRNA within MSC Exosomes improve the function of aging, injured or diseased cell, tissues and organs. These cells can provide “natural cellular communication” to help speed the body’s natural healing process. There are a variety of applications for this technology, including joint injections, hair restoration, sexual enhancement, facials, and more.
What are exosomes?
Exosomes are produced by virtually every cell type as a means of intercellular communication.
Exosomes contain proteins such as growth factors, enzymes, receptors, transcription factors and matrix proteins that govern cell structure, function and signaling. They also contain messenger RNA (mRNA), the blueprint for protein production, and micro RNA (miRNA), an important intracellular signaling mediator. Having a similar membrane to their parent cells, exosomes protect these encapsulated proteins and miRNA from degradation until they are delivered to a target cell. When exosomes deliver their contents to target cells, the exosomal proteins have direct effects on intracellular processes and signaling. Exosomal mRNA is translated by the cell to produce numerous copies of proteins that influence target cell behavior, signaling and its own exosome production. Exosomal miRNA influences target cell protein production by interfering with translation of specific mRNAs and reducing the production of the corresponding proteins.
How Exosomes Works
The intrinsic, biological properties of neonatal MSC exosomes demonstrated in laboratory studies indicate their potential as investigational biologic agents for the treatment of injury and disease.
At Cratus Medical Vitality Institute, we can utilize this product as one of the many tools, techniques, and products at our disposal to help you look and feel your best. After an initial consultation, we may determine that the use of exosomes is the right fit for your needs. From there, we will help educate you on the benefits of this regenerative medicine treatment and how it may work on its own or in conjuction with your larger treatment plan.
Internalization of exosomal proteins and RNA also influences the production of exosomes by the target cell. The exosomes that are produced by the target cell, after internalization of the parent cell exosomes, will then have secondary effects on other cells. These cascading effects may be responsible for the more sustained biologic effects seen with exosomes than the effects that the type of proteins in PRP or amniotic fluid alone would have.
