The Potential Roles of Extracellular Vesicles in AATD and IPF

Extracellular vesicles (EVs) have been implicated in the pathogenesis of a variety of chronic respiratory diseases, including alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency (AATD) and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). Their role in disease progression makes them an interesting target for diagnostic and therapeutic interventions. The multiple potential functions of EVs in these diseases are discussed by Purghè et…
