StemXo’s current work is focused on harnessing exosomes, nanosized extracellular vesicles containing crucial cell-to-cell signals involved in health, growth and other metabolic functions, derived from human stem cells including human umbilical mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), neural stem cells (NSCs), and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) as potential therapeutic agents for aging-associated diseases of the central nervous system.
In addition, as biological components naturally occurring within the body and internalized by cells to facilitate physiological signaling, exosomes are ideally suited to deliver engineered therapeutic cargoes to cells to target a disease of interest. StemXo is currently utilizing this strategy as a platform for viral-targeted therapies to treat COVID-19.
