Abstract
Methods used to restore damaged cells or tissue function via regeneration, repair or replacement in regenerative medicine ultimately use stem cells or their derivatives to induce response to disease and dysfunction. Stem cell-derived extracellular vesicles (EVs) are recognized as an attractive source of enriched exogenous microRNAs (miRNAs) by targeting pathological cells and overcome the obstacles faced by current cell therapy agents. However, there are some limitations that need to be addressed before using miRNA-enriched EVs derived from stem cells for multiplexed therapeutic targeting in many diseases. Here, we review the various strategies to induce effective and stable functional improvement of stem cell-derived EVs. In addition, we analyze the implications of several miRNA-enriched EV therapies improved by multiplexed targeting in diseases involving the circulatory system and nervous system. This systematic review may offer potential insights into the role of stem cell-derived therapeutics via multiplexed targeting mechanisms.
