WG-APO MS - Apolipoproteins by Mass Spectrometry

The group aims for submission of the following manuscripts in 2020:

  1. A manuscript will be a technical note or letter on the improved digestion of apolipoproteins using a combination of lysC and trypsin. This manuscript will summarize the findings and evidence gathered by the three reference labs (LUMC, CDC and UKL).
  2. A second manuscript that will be in the preparation phase by the end of 2020 is the development of a harmonized LC-MS based reference method, including results from the planned ring trials.

Members of the group have participated in several related publications:

  1. Orsi FA, Lijfering WM, Van der Laarse A, Ruhaak LR, Rosendaal FR, Cannegieter SC, Cobbaert C. Association of apolipoproteins C-I, C-II, C-III and E with coagulation markers and venous thromboembolism risk. Clin Epidemiol. 2019 10.2147/CLEP.S196266.
