A widely accepted model of the pathogenesis of Sjögren's syndrome is that in genetically predisposed individuals (reviewed by Harley in this issue), various environmental factors such as viral infections lead to epithelial cell activation and a protracted Cited by:   Sjogren's syndrome, which seems to be at least part genetic and part environmentally triggered, doesn't have a cure and, if left untreated, can affect.

Genetically, some people have an increased risk of developing Sjogren’s, but scientists believe another factor, like being infected by a certain virus or strain of bacteria, is also required to set the syndrome in motion.

The antibodies Anti-SSA (Ro) and Anti-SSB (La) are present in % of individuals with Sjogren’s syndrome, and about 30% of people living with lupus show markers for these antibodies as well. Most often, the co-occurring autoimmune disease is rheumatoid arthritis.

Other individuals with secondary Sjogren’s may have lupus, scleroderma. Sj ö gren's syndrome Definition. Sj ö gren's syndrome is an autoimmune disorder in which the mouth and eyes become extremely dry. Sj ö gren's syndrome is often associated with other autoimmune disorders.

Description. Like other autoimmune disorders, Sj ö gren's syndrome occurs when the body's immune system mistakenly considers parts of the body as foreign invaders.

Fox and colleagues in two excellent reviews 3, 10 have proposed the critical features in a model of SS that incorporates the histopathological, genetic, serological, and gene-profiling data available as follows: 1) an initial insult (either viral or non-viral) to the gland that leads to cellular necrosis or apoptosis with subsequent expression of the Sjögren's SS-A protein on the glandular Cited by:   Oral symptoms are among the most distressing manifestations for patients with Sjögren’s syndrome (SS).

Not all the articles listed here have their roots in evidence-based research, nor have they been directly or indirectly peer-reviewed. Even peer-reviewed and evidence-based, articles and even studies don't always represent "fact".Hi, Sjogren's syndrome is an autoimmune illness. It its case, immune system of our organism recognizes moisture producing glands as a threat and acts against them.

This action is conducted by the excessive creation of antibodies that fight the "enemy".An international team of researchers released new classification criteria for the common autoimmune condition Sjogren’s syndrome.

Classification criteria are the consensus opinion of a group of experts that researchers use in clinical studies to confirm a previous diagnosis and/or subclassify patients who have the same type of a given condition.
