Sjögren's Patients Needed
The National Institute of Dental Research and the Clinical Center are conducting a study of a promising new treatment for Sjögren's syndrome. The study will examine the effects of treatment with the hormone DHEA. Earlier studies for other conditions indicate that DHEA will be effective in SS patients. Women age 18 or older, with a diagnosis of primary Sjögren's syndrome, may be eligible to take part. Those who participate receive care by some of the nation's leading experts in the field. Evaluation, diagnosis, and study medication are provided to patients at no cost. Contact NIH's Patient Recruitment and Referral Center for more information: 1-800-411-1222.
