Exosomes: everything you need to know about this new therapy
Stem cell-derived exosome therapy is an effective and safe way to relieve chronic pain, leaving behind the need for invasive treatments, such as surgery or drugs with undesirable side effects.
What is exosome therapy?
Normally our cells release substances through envelope-like structures called vesicles. Exosomes are a type of vesicle produced especially by stem cells (mesenchymal cells).
In essence, these small messengers transport crucial molecules or substances, such as signaling proteins or genetic information from one cell to another in order to modulate or generate a response.
The aim of these vesicles is to enhance nerve signaling between cells to reduce the inflammatory response, while at the same time stimulating cell regeneration and modifying immune reactions to pathogens and other diseases.
Why do exosomes relieve pain and inflammation?
With aging, our reparative cells lose some of their ability to respond. Some environmental factors, genetic alterations, or chronic diseases, such as autoimmune disorders and Lyme disease can also interfere with or alter signaling between cells, leaving them unable to mediate inflammation and repair injured tissues.
The main goal of exosome therapy is to modulate both T cells and NK cells in the immune system. Both cells are critical for a balanced immune response, but when that balance is lost for multiple reasons, the result is often an immune imbalance that causes pain and chronic inflammation that is difficult to manage.
These vesicles work by regulating the activity of these cells. For example, when a joint is affected, exosomes are responsible for sending regulatory signals only to the altered cells to restore their normal function.
Therefore, exosomes play a leading role in the regulation and repair of damaged cells and tissues.
What does this new therapy consist of?
The exosomes are administered through an injectable solution that is applied to the affected area. In a single milliliter of solution, there can be between one and 16 billion exosomes. The dosage will depend on the patient’s needs and the therapeutic plan elaborated by the specialist.
Advantages of exosome therapy:
- The entire process occurs on an outpatient basis.
- It is not invasive, nor does it require anesthesia.
- It does not require previous preparations or a long period of inactivity for recovery.
- As it is a substance identical to the biological ones, it does not generate adverse reactions.
However, after treatment, it is necessary to avoid anti-inflammatory drugs, high-impact activities, or cardiovascular exercise for at least the first two weeks.
The results of the therapy depend on the patient’s age, condition, and severity of the condition. As we age our body deteriorates and responds slowly to signals from the cells, therefore in some cases the results are not immediate and several sessions may be necessary to achieve a noticeable improvement.
Where can I receive treatment with exosomes?
Currently, regenerative medicine is already being applied in different parts of the world.
In some places, the intervention and any other regenerative medicine procedure are certainly more cost-effective.
At Cellular Hope Institute we perform exosome and stem cell therapy in Cancun, Mexico. One of the most affordable and cost-effective locations for patients.
Our team will help you with:
- Scheduling therapy dates.
- Booking airline tickets.
- Providing hotel recommendations: many hotels are located next to the hospital.
- Arranging door-to-door transportation during your stay in Cancun, including assistance from and to the airport, hotel, hospital, and anywhere else you would like to go during your stay.
- Accompanying you from and to the hospital and answering any questions along the way.

What is Cellular Therapy?
Cellular Therapy, which is also known as regenerative medicine, is a new field of medicine today which aims to promote the repairing of diseased, dysfunctional, or lesioned tissues using Stem Cells and their derivative products.
Stem Cells are a basic building block of the human body– before cells are specialized into becoming lung cells, heart cells, or brain cells, they are stem cells. Under the right conditions in vitro or in a lab, stem cells can multiply to form more cells, which are called daughter cells, which are the ones that become specialized cells in the tissue that is attempting to be treated.
Regenerative medicine helps to stimulate proper healing processes within the body– and although there are other types of regenerative treatments available, there is no question that therapy using Mesenchymal Stem Cells is the most powerful available to physicians today. It has been proven through clinical trials that these cells can be used to treat a wide array of medical conditions, especially in the treatment of musculoskeletal conditions.
It can also largely reduce the long treatment times that are common with the standard of care for lesions and other conditions, as well as reduce rehabilitation time from years to months, providing a valuable alternative for expensive joint surgeries.
Stem Cells also have an incredible capacity to combat illness within the body, fortifying the immune system in patients and lowering inflammation common with autoimmune disorders. Due to the immune booster that cellular therapy can offer, many clinics are offering IV lines available for patients which are looking to use stem cells to stimulate their immune system. This immune system booster can be especially useful for increasing the quality of life and outlook of patients which are immunocompromised.
The Most Important Properties of Stem Cells Are:
Their ability to multiply and regenerative themselves
Their capacity to heal and renew damaged tissues
Cellular Therapy treatments based in Mexico have become a revolutionary modality for medical treatments– this is because of the benefits reported from patients. This can include reduced inflammation, increased mobility, and the healing of scar tissue, among other things. Because of this increase in popularity, many people are looking for cellular therapies that are both quality and affordable.
But, at the same time, you might be wondering– Why Mexico? What are the advantages?
Reasons to Undergo Cellular Therapy in Cancun, Mexico.
Chief among the many advantages that come with receiving your cellular therapy treatment in Mexico, there is the possibility to cultivate and reproduce, in a laboratory environment, those cells which have been extracted from patients. That is to say that a patient can be administered a much larger concentration of cells, which leads to improved results.
Additionally, Mexico is a wonderful option for those treatments that require a more invasive approach– a larger operating team, more medical products and PPE. Mexico is one of the Western Hemisphere’s largest medical tourism capitals, which means that treatments there are performed in hospitals that comply with FDA regulations, and are offered at a more affordable price point.
One can imagine that these types of treatments require a large investment on the side of the patient, however, the cost of a multiple-day cellular therapy treatment in Mexico, is far more affordable than the same treatment– that is, without the ability to use culture-expanded cells, in the United States and Canada.
Because of this, Mexico is one of the best places to administer regenerative medicine therapies, because of its:
- Better Cellular Product — including the ease of cultivating cells in a laboratory, and the ability to use naive cells.
- Legal status of a wide variety of treatments
At Cellular Hope Institute, we evaluate, diagnose, and treat patients around the world on a daily basis, with the latest regenerative medicine modalities available today.
We provide each and every one of our patients with an extensive support network to ensure that their experience is completely worry-free. We arrange travel and accompany you every step of the way, to guarantee that your trip to Cancun is calm, safe, and enjoyable.
