Sjögren`s Syndrome
Sjögren`s Syndrome patients suffer from an auto-immune disease that can lead to decreased functionning of the salivary glands. Reduced saliva production might predispose to the development of periodontitis. Monique Stokman and Carla Zegger are currently evaluating periodontall status of patients with primairy Sjögren`s Syndrome at the University Medical Center Groningen, the Netherlands. We hope to publish the results of this research in October 2008.
