New Research - Autologous Serum Drop as Sjogren's Treatment

Autologus serum drops are beneficial as treatment for Sjogren's Dry Eyes.  

New research indicate autologous serum drops can provide benefits for people with Sjogren's dry eyes.  Autologus serum drops are prepared from one's own blood by a licensed compounding pharmacist.  

Sjögren’s Syndrome is an autoimmune disease affecting moisture producing secretory glands with severe signs of dry eye and dry mouth. Treatment often involves the use of potent anti-inflammatory such as Plaquenil, Methotrexate, Prednisone and artificial tear drops.  It is also well known that frequent use of artifical eye drops make eyes drier- washing away all the natural lubricants eyes produce.  TheraLife Eye help revive and restore tear secretion glands to help produce your own natural tears for dry eye relief.  See section below.  

In a research study, autologous serum drops have shown to be effective in the management of Sjogren's dry eyes because it contain vitamins, growth factors and other components similar to natural tears. The purpose of this research study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of AS eye drops combined with punctal plugs in patients with Sjogren's related dry eye. 
This was a retrospective study of a total of 56 eyes of 28 patients diagnosed with primary or secondary Sjogren's Syndrome with symptoms of dry eye and a history of treatment with Autologous Serum eye drops. Schirmer test value ( measure tear volume), tear breakup time (TBUT)- measure tear viscosity- thickness, and fluorescein and Rose Bengal  staining scores at baseline, 3 months, 6 months, 1 year, and >1 year after treatment were evaluated.   

Conclusion - long-term application of AS eye drops was found to be an effective and safe treatment for SS dry eye.

The addition of ppunctal plugs in combination with Autologous  eye drops was found to have an additive effect on SJogren's dry eye. Sjogren's require aggressive therapy in order to prevent ocular surgace damage.
