Exosomes The Newest Regenerative Medicine


Patients want cutting-edge treatments, but not every treatment is the best option for your condition. This article is meant to give an overview of the benefits of exosomes that I offer my patients.

I believe exosomes derived from stem cells can play a beneficial role in treatment of autoimmune conditions. However, it’s part of her commitment to you to only offer treatments that will benefit you, and this new and exciting therapy is not for everyone.

How stem cells differ from exosomes? Exosomes are small signaling proteins that are derived from cells. The ones used in regenerative therapies come directly from stem cells, so even though they are not stem cells, exosomes contain much of the important signaling pathways found in stem cells.

Why exosomes are important?

Exosomes help to signal important information to cells that don't communicate well with each other due to a decease process or normal aging.

How do exosomes work?

Exosomes carry genetic information, proteins and messenger RNA. Because of their unique shape and content, they are able to tell cells how and when to react.

Exosomes from young stem cells rejuvenate the older cells. They assist in calming an overactive immune system or modulating it to respond in a coordinated and thus more effective fashion.

Therapeutic Uses of Exosomes

Patients with degenerative diseases will benefit the most from exosome therapy. Lyme disease, chronic inflammation, autoimmune disease, and other chronic degenerative diseases are primary candidates for this treatment.

Stem cell-derived exosomes have anti-inflammatory potential. They induce high levels of anti-inflammatory cytokines, and therefore patients with autoimmune and inflammation disorders may respond to the benefits of exosome therapy.

What are the benefits of exosome therapy?

The benefits of exosome therapy vary, but mot patients report a reduction of the inflammatory symptoms of their chronic disease. This indicates the exosomes are assisting in the repair and regulation process. As time goes on, exosomes will also reprogram the cell function and aid in repair processes. It may take up to four-six months to see the full benefit, but they should last as long as 12 months.

After reading this, we hope you’re as excited about this new therapy as we are.

Is exosome therapy right for you? Please call 212-288-8832 for an individual consultation about this treatment.

Stay Healthy.

Tick Species Never Before In U.S. Found At Hunterdon County Farm

A rare, exotic East Asian tick not previously known to be present in the United States was found on a Hunterdon County farm this month, the New Jersey Department of Agriculture announced this week. Officials are investigating if the ticks found locally are carrying pathogens that could cause a risk to human or animal health.

The tick, also known as the longhorned tick or bush tick, was tested at the United States Department of Agriculture's National Veterinary Services Laboratory following initial identification by the Monmouth County Tick-borne Diseases Lab.

PART I: Prominent Neurologist Calls Lyme Disease ‘A Human Rights Concern’

Dr. Frid is a New York-based board-certified neurologist and clinical neurophysiologist who specializes in infection-induced autoimmune disorders. I first met Dr. Frid in Amsterdam last May, where she was speaking at the Lyme disease awareness event Something Inside So Strong. We had a chance to speak about Lyme disease there and then again at a national Lyme disease awareness event in Ottawa, Canada in June. I was struck by Dr. Frid’s patient-focused approach, and especially by her assertion that Lyme disease is “a human rights concern.”

In the following three-part interview, Dr. Frid and I discuss myriad topics associated with chronic illness and Lyme disease, beginning with the June 15 issue of the CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) and related news coverage...

PART II: “Lyme patients deserve same personalized approach to treatment as cancer patients”

Following is the second of a three-part interview with Dr. Elena Frid, a New York City-based neurologist and clinical neurophysiologist, autoimmune neurologist and adult & pediatric Lyme disease specialist: Facebook/Instagram @DrElenaFrid (Part one of our interview is available here.) In this installment, she discusses the potential role of underlying infections in autoimmune disease processes, concerns relating to tickborne diseases and blood donation, and the complexity that is Lyme disease overall.

FULL ARTICLE

Dr. Frid continues her Lyme awareness and advocacy work by speaking to CROMOS publishing; a Colombian photojournalism magazine, which is starting to educate and raise awareness of the "smart bacteria". Due to the lack of scientific literature in Spanish, we hope this article will impact other journalist in the country and bring a new perspective to physicians.
