Raman profiling of circulating extracellular vesicles for the stratification of Parkinson's patients

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Parkinson's disease (PD) is a chronic neurodegenerative disorder, characterized by considerable clinical heterogeneity. Extracellular vesicles (EVs) were proposed as new biomarkers for PD because of their role as vehicles of multiple PD related molecules, but technical limitations exist in their detection and characterization in a clinical environment. We propose herein a Raman based protocol for the label-free analysis of circulating EVs as diagnostic and predictive tool for PD. After purification from serum of PD patients and healthy subjects, EVs were analyzed by Raman spectroscopy demonstrating the feasibility and reproducibility of the proposed biophotonic approach, its moderate accuracy in distinguishing PD patients from controls by their EV profile and the correlation between Raman data and clinical scales. Once validated, the Raman spectroscopy of circulating EVs could represent a reliable, automatable and sensitive method for the stratification of PD patients and for the evaluation of the effectiveness of rehabilitation and pharmacological treatments.
