Over the last two decades, significant progress has been made toward understanding the generation and biological role of cell-derived extracellular vesicles (EVs). EVs are membrane-bound structures that are generated by an evolutionarily conserved process. They are secreted by nearly all cell types and present in all body fluids. EVs are potentially vital contributors to inflammation, which carry autoantigens, danger signals, cytokines, lipid mediators and tissue-degrading enzymes. Sufficient evidence now exists to indicate that inflammatory diseases could be treated by targeting EV release. Furthermore, EVs evidently have critical roles in the initiation, progression and regulation of inflammatory diseases. This Special Issue aims to address the functions of EVs during inflammation and their potential as biomarkers, drug delivery vehicles and targets in inflammatory disorders.
