Parkinson’s disease (PD) is the second most common neurodegenerative ailment after Alzheimer’s disease, with no known cure and no early diagnostic test. Without an accurate test for early onset, people may gradually develop symptoms over years before receiving a PD diagnosis. There are currently no effective treatments for PD that can reverse existing motor dysfunctions or arrest the progression of the disease; instead, they are focused on symptom relief.
While earlier studies have amply demonstrated that exosomes play a significant role in the pathophysiology of Parkinson’s disease (PD), recent research suggests an intriguing prospect for employing exosomes as diagnostic and therapeutic agents in the fight against PD.
Exosomes in Parkinson’s Disease
Exosomes produced by stem cells may act as a mediator for the therapeutic actions of stem cells. Recent advancements in stem cell therapy have given hope to those with parkinson’s. For instance, mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) therapy has been demonstrated in clinical studies to be helpful in reducing the symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease.
Exosomes could be beneficial in the treatment of people with neurodegenerative conditions because of their capacity to regulate regeneration processes within our bodies. The anti-inflammatory effects of exosomes may be accountable for at least some of the therapeutic success. This might be due to the capacity of exosome therapy to pass through the blood-brain barrier (BBB), where they stimulate neuron differentiation and growth while suppressing inflammatory pathways in the nerve cells.
What Can You Expect After Exosome Therapy?
Exosomes are produced and released by stem cells and have a variety of impacts on various cell types. They may also activate endogenous repair pathways in damaged organs, recovering their functionality. It is possible to send exosome cargo to recipient cells to repair specific biological reactions that Parkinson’s has damaged. Exosomes have anti-inflammatory effects on neurological illnesses as well. This is most likely because they can encourage the generation of cytokines that are anti-inflammatory.
Here are some of the expected benefits that you can observe after exosome therapy:
- Reduced tremors and freezing episodes
- Improvement in walking
- Better cognition
- Overall symptomatic improvements
