Retinal thinning, as measured by the noninvasive imaging technique called optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA), may help diagnose Sjögren’s, according to…

Oral Cenerimod Effective in Reducing Gland Inflammation in Mouse Models

The experimental oral therapy cenerimod prevented immune cells from entering the salivary glands and reduced gland inflammation in two Sjögren’s syndrome mouse models, a study demonstrated. “These encouraging data suggest that cenerimod may be a promising approach to treating Sjögren’s syndrome,” the scientists said. The study, titled “…
