Clinical trials are designed to add to medical knowledge and most importantly, the results of these trials can make a difference in the care and treatment of Sjögren’s patients.  A clinical trial is important because it contributes to the advancement of science. It provides the participants an opportunity to receive potential benefit from a drug, medical device or procedure or even a lifestyle change such as diet or exercise. The Sjögren’s Foundation is fully committed to the development of new therapeutics that will treat the entire disease, not just one symptom.
