Abstract

An aortic aneurysm is a ruinous condition that compromises the aortic wall. If inaccurately monitored, it could evolve in an extensive dilatation of the vessel and eventually in the aorta's devastating rupture with low survival rates. The recent attempts to increase clinical remission and disease clearance have only partially alleviated the disease-related poor prognosis. Indeed, aortic aneurysm events annually increase their impact on the National Health Systems of industrialized countries. In recent years, liquid biopsy tests have gained attention as a valuable alternative to traditional diagnostics. Classified as small extracellular vesicles of endosomal origin, exosomes are 30-150 nm diameter vesicles, which are physiologically produced by all cell types and secreted through an exocytosis process in blood, urine, cerebrospinal fluid, and other body fluids. Representing the molecular footprint of the cells of origin, exosomes have been recently considered to design a reliable liquid biopsy for non-invasive monitoring of disease evolution and a valuable tool to monitor the therapy response. Metalloproteinases have been reported as specific markers of aortic aneurysm in terms of disease staging and progression. Of interest, it has been demonstrated a specular metalloproteinase expression in the extracellular vesicles of patients, thus constituting a personal "barcode" of disease progression. This evidence could potentially allow the definition of innovative liquid biopsy approaches for monitoring the disease together with a comprehensive aortic aneurysm-derived exosomes molecular characterization and trapping.
