“Everyday research is being conducted to unveil new medications, therapies and diagnostic tools for Sjögren’s. By participating in a clinical trial, you will be helping to potentially uncover breakthroughs that will help Sjögren’s patients worldwide.” Steven Taylor, Sjögren’s Foundation CEO
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.
