Dominique PV de Kleijn's Biography



Dominique PV de Kleijn, Professor Experimental Vascular Surgery, Professor Netherlands Heart Institute, University Medical Center Utrecht, The Netherlands

Prof. Dr. Dominique PV de Kleijn is a molecular biologist and chemist, and professor of Experimental Vascular Surgery at UMC Utrecht and professor at the Netherlands Heart Institute. From 2012 to 2016, he was Research Professor of Surgery at NUS/NUHS and preclinical director of the Cardiovascular Research Institute (CVRI) Singapore. He was until 2016 professor of Cardiovascular Immunology and co-chair of Experimental Cardiology at UMC Utrecht. Since 1997 he is coordinating cardiovascular research from basic science, animal myocardial infarction and atherosclerotic studies (mouse and pig) towards clinical biobanking studies. His research interests are: The innate immune system in cardiovascular disease and atherosclerosis & Biomarkers predictive for primary & secondary events with a focus on plasma extracellular vesicles. He has more than 200 publications and a H-factor of 68.

Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) is with cardiovascular events of Ischemic Heart Disease (IHD) and Stroke, the number 1 and 2 cause of death in the world and expect to increase especially in Asia. We use protein signatures measured in 3 different subsets of plasma extracellular vesicle (EV) as an accurate source for early diagnosis and prediction of cardiovascular events like IHD and Stroke.

The diagnosis IHD is challenging, as many patients present with atypical symptoms. It is known that women have a different symptom sensation than men. Troponins are the main diagnostic tool for detection of MI. Blood biomarkers for stable angina (SA) and unstable angina (UA), however, are not available. These diagnoses frequently require hospital visits/admissions for time-consuming and costly (non)invasive tests. Using a simplified method that is suitable for automation and microfluidics to isolate the plasma EV subfractions in 25 ul plasma, we now validated our data in a large case control study (150 cases vs 300 controls) that showed that  EV subfractions can diagnose accurately SA in a drop of blood. Next to this, using another signature in plasma EV subfractions for patient that undergo a carotid endatherectomy (CEA) we could accurately determine which patient will get a second cardiovascular event (myocardial infarction, stroke or death) or not within 3 years after CEA.

Plasma EV subfractions  are a very valuable biomarker source for the diagnosis and prognosis of cardiovascular disease.
