Vesicle size distribution during pregnancy

Gestational ageNormal (nm)GDM (nm)
Early (11–14 weeks)103 ± 41108 ± 45
Mid (22–28 weeks)107 ± 48100 ± 51

  • The size distribution of exosome preparations were analyzed using a NanoSight NS500 system according to the manufacturer’s instructions (see research design and methods). Data are presented as mean ± SD. All preparations were analyzed in duplicate, and five videos were recorded for normal and GDM pregnancy.
