Resumo

Background: Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a disabling genetic disease with an increased prevalence in European heritage populations. Currently, the most used technique for collection of CF samples and diagnosis is provided through uncomfortable tests, with uncertain results, mostly based on chloride concentration in sweat. Since CF mutation induces many metabolic changes in patients, exploring these alterations might be an alternative to visualize potential biomarkers that could be used as interesting tools for further diagnostic upgrade, prioritizing simplicity, low cost, and quickness. Methods: This contribution describes an accurate strategy to provide potential biomarkers related to CF, which may be understood as a potential tool for new diagnostic approaches and/or for monitoring disease evolution. Therefore, the present proposal consists of using skin imprints on silica plates as a way of sample collection, followed by direct-infusion high-resolution mass spectrometry and multivariate data analysis, intending to identify metabolic changes in skin composition of CF patients. Results: Metabolomics analysis allowed identifying chemical markers that can be traced back to CF in patients' skin imprints, differently from control subjects. Seven chemical markers from several molecular classes were elected, represented by bile acids, a glutaric acid derivative, thyrotropin-releasing hormone, an inflammatory mediator, a phosphatidic acid, and diacylglycerol isomers, all reflecting metabolic disturbances that occur due to of CF. Conclusion: The comfortable method of sample collection combined with the identified set of biomarkers represent potential tools that open the range of possibilities to manage CF and follow the disease evolution. This exploratory approach points to new perspectives about the development of diagnostic assay using biomarkers and the management CF. (AU)
