The Mediterranean diet supplemented with extra virgin olive oil or nuts modulates the expression of microRNAs transported by exosomes.

The relevance of lncRNAs and miRNAs in the regulation of different physiological and pathological conditions makes their therapeutic modulation a potentially viable tool to help treating different diseases. Here, the authors report data showing that exosome-transported lncRNAs and miRNAs can be modulated by specific dietary patterns, i.e., Mediterranean diets. Understanding the processes underlying the regulation of cell-to-cell communication, involving non-coding RNAs, may help developing novel therapeutic strategies to prevent or treat human diseases.
