Exosomes (EXs) are cell-derived vesicles that mediate cell-cell communication and could serve as biomarkers. Here we described novel methods for purification and phenotyping of EXs released from endothelial cells (ECs) and endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) by combining microbeads and fluorescence quantum dots (Q-dots®) techniques. EXs from the culture(More)
Posters flaps, introduced in 1972 by Scolnick and McCall, was an improvement on existing techniques in that they varied the type of flap according to the patients lateral pharyngeal wall motion.
