This technology applies to the isolation, purification, and recovery of extracellular vesicles from plant materials, referred to as plant-derived extracellular vesicles. The exosome population of the PDEVs are employed for use as vectors for the delivery of therapeutics. Exosome vectors are a promising means for the treatment of many diseases, many of which are currently in clinical trials. Roots Analysis…

The novel fusogenic peptides improve the delivery of therapeutics for ovarian cancer through their ability to enhance endosomal escape and delivery of bioactive therapeutics. Epithelial ovarian cancer is the 5th leading cancer among women, with a 49% five-year survival rate. Current treatment strategies for ovarian cancer include surgical removal, chemotherapy, and radiation; however, these treatments often prove ineffective or toxic…
