Auto-immune disease, Sjogren's syndrome

Description:Among individuals with primary Sjogren's syndrome, Lewis blood group frequency differs from that of the general population, due mainly to an increased Lewis negative phenotype (Le (a-b-)) frequency. (1)
A major risk factor for developing Sj¸gren's is being a postmenopausal woman. It occurs less commonly in younger women, children and men of any age. Other risk factors include having: an autoimmune disease, such as lupus, vasculitis, thyroid disease or scleroderma and/or a family member with Sj¸gren's.
