Effect of human vasoactive intestinal peptide gene transfer in a murine model of Sjogren's syndrome.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Sjögren's syndrome (SS), an autoimmune exocrinopathy mainly affecting lachrymal and salivary glands, results in ocular and oral dryness (keratoconjunctivitis sicca and xerostomia).
