  1. Antibodies to aquaporins (AQPs) are frequent in patients with primary Sjögren’s syndrome (SS). Antibodies to AQPs (especially to AQP8 and AQP9) are frequent in SS patients and the likely important role of AQPs in salivary gland secretions justifies further research. Rheumatology, 08/31/2017. (Also see Diagnosis of Sjögren's Syndrome) This item was posted in the ISN Newsroom. Please check the newsroom daily for updates on scleroderma and other related articles.
  2. Beta-2 Microglobulin in Whole Unstimulated Saliva (sB2M) Can Effectively Distinguish Between Sjögren’s Syndrome (SS) and Non–Autoimmune Sicca Symptoms. In our setting, sB2M effectively distinguished between SS patients and non–autoimmune sicca symptoms and including sB2M in our conventional diagnostic arsenal may assist in the evaluation of patients in whom SS is suspected. Archives of Rheumatology, 06/08/2017. (Also see Diagnosis of Sjögren's Syndrome) This item was posted in the ISN Newsroom.

  3. Antibodies to interferon-inducible protein-16 in primary Sjögren's syndrome are associated with markers of more severe disease. Anti-IFI16 antibodies are a prominent specificity in primary SS and are associated with markers of severe disease. PubMed, Arthritis Care Res (Hoboken), 06/02/2015. (Also see Diagnosis of Sjögrens) This item was posted in the ISN Newsroom. Please check the newsroom daily for updates on scleroderma and other related articles.
  4. Diagnostic properties of ultrasound of major salivary glands in Sjögren's Syndrome: a meta-analysis. The quality of current studies is low, thus not allowing to judge the likelihood of salivary gland ultrasonography as a reliable and practical tool in diagnosing Sjögren's Syndrome. PubMed, Oral Dis, 05/18/2015. (Also see Diagnosis of Sjögrens) This item was posted in the ISN Newsroom. Please check the newsroom daily for updates on scleroderma and other related articles.
  5. Salivary Gland Ultrasonography (US) as a Diagnostic Tool for Secondary Sjögren Syndrome (sSS) in Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA). Salivary gland US may aid the diagnosis of sSS in patients with RA. PubMed, J Rheumatol, 05/01/2015. (Also see Diagnosis of Sjögrens and Rheumatoid Arthritis in Overlap) This item was posted in the ISN Newsroom.

  6. Prevalence of distal renal tubular acidosis in primary Sjögren's syndrome (pSS). Furosemide and fludrocortisone (FF) cannot replace NH4Cl in testing urinary acidification in pSS, but may be considered as a screening tool. PubMed, Rheumatology (Oxford), 2014 Oct 29. (Also see: Diagnosis of Sjögren's Syndrome) This item was posted in the ISN Newsroom. Please check the newsroom daily for updates on scleroderma and other related articles.
  7. Establishment of a novel diagnostic model for Sjögren's syndrome (pSS) by proteomic fingerprinting. Proteomic fingerprinting was able to distinguish pSS from non-pSS controls with a sensitivity of 77.1 % and a specificity of 85.5 %, and was effective in the diagnosis of pSS. PubMed, Clin Rheumatol, 2014 Sep 2. (Also see: Diagnosis of Sjogren's Syndrome) This item was posted in the ISN Newsroom.
