New research from National Institute of Health indicate the virus Hepatitis delta Virus maybe associated with Primary Sjogren's Disease. Of the 2 categories, Primary Sjogren's have more severe symptoms, and they do not have another rheumatic disease associated with it.
The salivary glands of Sjogren's patients were examined for viral vectors, changes in salivary flow, development of auto-antibodies compare to normal salivary glands. This virus also demonstrated its ability to reduce saliva flow, increased lymphocyte infiltrates and development of auto-antibodies in mice.
Identification of HDV in Sjögren’s syndrome patients and induction of a Sjögren’s syndrome-like disease in vivo further support a viral-mediated etiopathology in Sjögren’s syndromeThis study was presented at
