Urinary vesicles (uEVs) are small particles that are found in urine and largely originate directly from the kidney. This thesis describes steps taken to make uEVs clinically applicable, by
(1) analyzing ways that allow for rapid and reliable analysis,
(2) investigating the effect of gender, kidney size and urine concentration on uEV excretion, and
(3) by the discovery of a uEV protein that can predict the course of cystic kidney disease.
