Immunological parameters exert a relevant diagnostic and prognostic role in primary Sjögren's syndrome (pSS) and may identify specific disease phenotypes. Among disease-associated immunological features, anti-La/SSB are rarely found without concomitant anti-Ro/SSA and their clinical significance in patients with pSS has been poorly investigated. Thus, we aimed to characterise the value of anti-La/SSB analysing clinical and serologic features of a wide cohort of pSS patients with both circulating anti-Ro/SSA and positive salivary gland biopsy (SGB).

Abstract

Immunological parameters exert a relevant diagnostic and prognostic role in primary Sjögren's syndrome (pSS) and may identify specific disease phenotypes. Among disease-associated immunological features, anti-La/SSB are rarely found without concomitant anti-Ro/SSA and their clinical significance in patients with pSS has been poorly investigated. Thus, we aimed to characterise the value of anti-La/SSB analysing clinical and serologic features of a wide cohort of pSS patients with both circulating anti-Ro/SSA and positive salivary gland biopsy (SGB).
