Protocol: STUDY00004773
Full Title
Understanding molecular mechanisms of Sjogrens syndrome pathogenesis
Description
This study enrolls people who will be having a salivary gland biopsy at ECMC. The purpose of the study is to learn more about the tissue that makes saliva (salivary gland tissue).

We expect that the collection of tissue for this research study will take no longer than your scheduled surgery. We will keep a small amount of salivary gland tissue that is removed as part of the usual biopsy procedure and use it for research purposes. Study takes place at ECMC.
