Forsyth study provides new insight in the fight against Sjögren’s syndrome

(Forsyth Institute) Sjögren's syndrome is the second most common autoimmune disease affecting four million Americans — yet treatments are limited due to a lack of knowledge about its causes. A new study from the Forsyth Institute is helping to shed light on what happens in the development and the life cycle of the disease. This study is one of the first to define the immune-regulatory mechanisms operating in Sjögren's syndrome and provides a new foundation for fighting the disease.
