Urine Task Force

Urinary extracellular vesicles (uEV) provide insight into diseases of the urological tract and probably from other organs too.

However, the potential use of uEV as biomarkers is not fully exploited because of the variability of the fluid, the diversity of isolation and analytical approaches employed and the major question of specimen normalisation. The goal of the Urine Task Force is to put together nephrologists, urologist and biologists with active experience in uEV research to establish best practice and standardize the field. The Urine Task Force held an inaugural virtual symposium on 15-16 February. View the program and abstract book.
