OMRF is recruiting those who have or who think they may have Sjögren’s syndrome to participate in new research studies and a clinical trial.
The project will focus on comparing certain immune cells in patients with Sjögren’s to those of healthy controls.
At its annual honors and awards ceremony on Thursday, OMRF presented Christy Everest with its Board of Directors Distinguished Service Award.
Sjögren’s syndrome may affect as many as 4 million Americans.
The award is for continued research into the origins of Sjögren’s syndrome.
Findings may point researchers to the origins of this autoimmune disease
