Celebrating 35 Years of Sjögren's Syndrome Research at NIDCR

   
Air date: Friday, November 15, 2019, 10:00:00 AM
Time displayed is Eastern Time, Washington DC Local
Description: To mark the genesis of the NIDCR Sjögren’s Syndrome Clinic at NIDCR, speakers will trace the past, present, and future of research on this systemic autoimmune condition. Sjögren’s syndrome, which commonly causes dry mouth and dry eyes, affects up to 4 million people in the United States. Dry mouth is caused by decreased functioning of the salivary glands, and interferes with taste, makes chewing and swallowing more difficult, and increases the risk for cavities, tooth loss, and oral infections.
