The study on dynamic analysis of human urinary proteome is the foundation that we discriminate certain various urinary proteins as potential bio-marker derived from the disease itself or normal physiological change. In our results, based on RPLC-MS/MS and spectral count to study pooled and individual urine samples and other researchers’ studies, it can be known that the content of many urinary proteins maintain relatively stable. We have reason to believe that the relatively stable urinary protein is a very valuable resource as biomarkers. Many similar proteins such as prostaglandin-H2 D-isomerase and apolipoprotein D proteins have been proved our hypothesis. The following field, the number, preservation and treatment methods of urine sample, the standardization of analysis method and data processing, and suitable quantitative method, is ought to the focus of future study.
