Extracellular vesicles (EVs) are nanoparticles encapsulated by a lipid bilayer produced by cells. Since they are secreted, they can be easily harvested or extracted from biological fluids. They carry a variety of cargoes and play critical roles in intercellular communications and physiological processes, making them attractive drug delivery vectors or direct therapeutic agents.
