Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is associated with coagulopathy. However, the underlying mechanisms are not completely understood. We evaluated the association between COVID-19 coagulopathy and extracellular vesicle (EV) levels. We hypothesized that several EV levels would be higher in COVID-19 coagulopathy patients than in non-coagulopathy patients. This prospective observational study was conducted in four tertiary care faculties in Japan. We enrolled 99 COVID-19 patients (48 with coagulopathy and 51 without coagulopathy) aged ≥20 years who required hospitalization, and 10 healthy volunteers; we divided the patients into coagulopathy and non-coagulopathy groups according to the D-dimer levels (≥1 μg/mL and <1 μg/mL, respectively). We used flow cytometry to measure the tissue-factor-bearing, endothelium-derived, platelet-derived, monocyte-derived, and neutrophil-derived EV levels in platelet-free plasma. The EV levels were compared between the two COVID-19 groups as well as among the coagulopathy patients, non-coagulopathy patients, and healthy volunteers. No significant difference was found in EV levels between the two groups. Meanwhile, the cluster of differentiation (CD) 41 + EV levels were significantly higher in COVID-19 coagulopathy patients than in healthy volunteers (549.90 [255.05–984.65] vs. 184.3 [150.1–254.1] counts/µL, p = 0.011). Therefore, CD41+ EVs might play an essential role in COVID-19 coagulopathy development.
