ILIAS Biologics and The University of Texas Medical Branch(UTMB) unlock secrets of maternal/fetal cellular communication during pregnancy
Exosomes carry cellular signals, and traffic between fetal and maternal tissues to produce functional changes in recipient cells. In this study, we report feto-maternal and maternal−fetal trafficking of exosomes indicative of paracrine signaling during pregnancy. Trafficking of exosomes suggests their potential role in pregnancy as biomarkers of fetal functions and usefulness as a carrier of drugs and other cargo to the fetal side during pregnancy.
