CTSA Visiting Scholars Program - What salivary gland mesenchymal stromal cells teach us about the pathogenesis and treatment of Sjӧgren's Syndrome

Mayo Clinic Logo

Sjӧgren's syndrome (SS), the second most common rheumatic disease contributing nine times the cost of a healthy person, has hallmark features of oral and ocular dryness due to salivary and lacrimal gland inflammation. Minor salivary glands, central to the pathogenesis and diagnosis of SS, contain mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs). In other conditions MSCs are responsible for tissue repair and immune system modulation. This talk will update listeners on the contribution of MSCs to the pathogenesis of SS and how MSCs can be harnessed toward advancing novel SS treatments.

This presentation will be given by Sara McCoy, MD, MS from the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine & Public Health.
