Abstract

The present invention provides novel methods of identifying, monitoring or determining the risk of developing a protein misfolding neurodegenerative disorder in a subject, particularly an alpha synucleinopathy(including Parkinson's disease and dementia with Lewy bodies) using extracellular vesicle samples. Corresponding methods for selecting a treatment and assaying for the presence of a pathological prion-like protein (or one or more ceramide species) in an extracellular vesicle sample are also provided.
