Abstract:
Parasites have long been known to influence host responses to infection through the secretion of virulence factors. Extracellular vesicles are emerging as important mediators of these manipulations, and a new study by Szempruch et al. suggests they could play a crucial role in host responses to African trypanosome infections.
