Fundamentals and Terminology Introduction

After long controversy, it is now recognized that essentially all neurodegenerative diseases have inflammatory components [1]. Many other neurological disorders are exacerbated by inflammation, including the progressive impairment following stroke or traumatic brain injury (TBI). It has been known that levels of circulating cell-derived microparticles (MP) are generally increased in inflammatory states, making them useful as biomarkers. More recently, certain species of MP or exo- somes have been implicated as causative agents in neuroinflammation, to be reviewed.
