Sjogren's is complex

Updated: Aug 9, 2020

Click on the new webpage Sjogren's is Complex to learn about new research that helps to explain:

  • Why Sjogren's patients often have such different symptoms.

  • Why one person with Sjogren's responds well to a particular treatment, but another one appears to have no benefit at all.


Sjogren's is a very complex systemic disease. The remarkable variety of features makes Sjogren's challenging to study, diagnose, and treat.


Researchers are starting to unravel the complex web of events that are the underlying cause of disease manifestations. Understanding the biology that leads to Sjogren's and its subtypes is key to finding better tests and treatments.






The Sjogren's Foundation funds and promotes leading-edge research projects in this exciting new area.
