Scholarcy highlights

  • The morphology of adipose tissue-derived stem cells-extracellular vesicles was observed by Transmission Electron Microscopy, which revealed that the EVs had a typical spherical morphology and were mostly intact
  • The results revealed that interleukin 8, called chemokine ligand 8, was present in ADSC-EVs at a higher concentration than the other proteins, followed by chemokine ligand 2, a tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases 1, TIMP-2, and vascular endothelial growth factor-D
  • Our results showed that ADSC-EVs induced a more tube-like formation of endothelial cells compared with the control, which was confirmed by AngioTool analysis
  • The results of the current study reveal the presence of proangiogenic proteins in human primary ADSC-EVs, and demonstrate the proangiogenic effect of ADSC-EVs in vitro and in vivo
  • These findings suggest that ADSC-EVs, which are feasibly isolated from adipose tissue, are a promising therapeutic for ischaemic diseases in the future
  • All authors have read and agreed to the published version of the manuscript
