Journal Article Highlights AlbuVoid™ in Rheumatoid Arthritis Biomarker Study
Mihara, Keisuke, et al. "Identification of Specific Protein Markers of Rheumatoid Arthritis in Synovial Fluid and Serum (https://www.jstage.jst.go.jp/
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is characterized by chronic inflammation, hyperproliferation of synovial cells, and bone destruction. In this study, AlbuVoid™ was used to remove Albumin and enrich the low abundance proteomes from serum and synovial fluid. The article states "…albumin and globulin were eliminated by using an AlbuVoid Albumin Depletion Kit (Biotech Support, Monmouth Junction, NJ)." The investigation searched for RA-specific protein/peptide markers to facilitate early and sensitive diagnosis of RA using three different methods: a protein chip, 2D-gel, and western blotting. The study identified several RA-specific protein and peptide marker candidates.
"We are very pleased to see that AlbuVoid™ provided the enrichment necessary to uncover biomarker candidates for Rheumatoid Arthritis. Using three different analytical reporting methods, the versatility of AlbuVoid™ enrichment from both synovial fluid and serum is demonstrated"
