abstract

  • This serum proteomic profiling approach appears to be useful in distinguishing between states of stable clinical remission and active disease. Further validation and refinement of this strategy may help clinicians apply immunosuppressive therapies more judiciously among their patients, thereby avoiding morbidity and mortality from excessive treatment. Identification of the most robust and clinically useful combinations of ions will permit the rational selection of molecules for sequencing and analysis.
