Peritoneal Dialysis PD is considered the best option for a cost-effective mid-term dialysis in patients with Chronic Renal Failure. However, functional failure of the peritoneal membrane PM force many patients to stop PD treatment and start haemodialysis. Currently, PM functionality is monitored by the peritoneal equilibration test, a tedious technique that often show changes when the membrane damage is advanced. As in other pathologies, the identification and characterization of extracellular vesicles EVs in the peritoneal dialysis efflux PDE may represent a non-invasive alternative to identify biomarkers of membrane failure. Using size-exclusion chromatography, we isolated EVs from PDE in a group of patients. Vesicles were characterized by the presence of tetraspanin markers, nanoparticle tracking analysis profile, cryo-electron microscopy and mass spectrometry. Here, we report the isolation and characterization of PDE-EVs. Based on mass spectrometry, we have found a set of well-conserved proteins among patients. Interestingly, the peptide profile also revealed remarkable changes between newly enrolled and longer-treated PD patients. These results are the first step to the identification of PDE-EVs based new markers of PM damage, which could support clinicians in their decision-making in a non-invasive manner.
