Development of such a delivery system for therapeutic purposes faces many challenges, including ethical and technical issues; for example, choice of the best gene transfection method to introduce the RNA/protein of interest (cargo) into exosome-secreting cells (virus, lipofection, electroporation), how to target the cargo into the exosomes, the best technique to load exosomes with the drug of interest (electroporation or lipofection), and the cost of the process are a few of the concerns that need to be addressed.
