Sjögren's Syndrome Foundation releases its first guidelines for disease treatment

March 22, 2017

The Sjögren’s Syndrome Foundation has released its first treatment guidelines for the management of Sjögren’s syndrome, according to a recently published report.

“Among all chronic autoimmune rheumatic disorders, Sjögren’s syndrome remains one of the most difficult to manage,” Steven E. Carsons, MD, at Winthrop-University Hospital Campus at the State University of New York, and colleagues wrote. “Development of [clinical practice guidelines] CPGs for the ocular, oral and systemic/rheumatologic manifestations should substantially improve the quality and consistency of care, guide reimbursement policies and decrease the overall burden of illness.”
