Tear proteomics, by 2-DE, can give a fingerprint of the protein profile, which is well suited in clinical proteomics for biomarker identification and in diagnostics. The mode of tear collection can influence the representation of the proteins in the tear and therefore it is important to use the appropriate method. In this study, capillary and Schirmer mode(More)
PURPOSE Sjögren syndrome (SS) secondary to rheumatoid arthritis (RA) affects lacrimal and salivary glands, and therefore dry eye syndrome (DES) is more prevalent in patients with RA. This study used a proteomic approach to identify potential biomarkers in tear of DES secondary to RA (DES-RA). METHODS Tear specimens were collected with Schirmer strips from(More)
