Whole human saliva possesses tremendous potential in clinical diagnostics, particularly for conditions within the oral cavity such as oral cancer. Although many have studied the soluble fraction of whole saliva, few have taken advantage of the diagnostic potential of the cells present in saliva, and none have taken advantage of proteomics capabilities for(More)
BACKGROUND Oral cancer survival rates increase significantly when it is detected and treated early. Unfortunately, clinicians now lack tests which easily and reliably distinguish pre-malignant oral lesions from those already transitioned to malignancy. A test for proteins, ones found in non-invasively-collected whole saliva and whose abundances distinguish(More)
Researchers are increasingly turning to label-free MS1 intensity-based quantification strategies within HPLC-ESI-MS/MS workflows to reveal biological variation at the molecule level. Unfortunately, HPLC-ESI-MS/MS workflows using these strategies produce results with poor repeatability and reproducibility, primarily due to systematic bias and complex(More)
