Addressing the first point, they reported a mean level of sB2M of 5.3 [+ or -] 4.6 mg/L (or 5,300 [+ or -] 4,600 ng/mL) in those with pSS.
[5] reported a sB2M cutoff level of 2.3 mg/L (2,300 ng/mL) to differentiate the SS group from the non-SS group.
[18] previously proposed to study sB2M in order to distinguish patients with pSS from those with sicca symptoms but no autoimmune disease.
