The British Sjögren’s Syndrome Association (BSSA) is a registered charity dedicated to providing mutual support and information to individuals affected by Sjögren syndrome. Sjögren syndrome is an autoimmune disorder characterized by degeneration of the mucus-secreting glands, particularly the tear ducts of the eyes (lacrimal) and saliva glands of the mouth. Autoimmune disorders are caused when the body's natural defenses (antibodies, lymphocytes, etc.) against invading organisms suddenly begin to attack healthy tissue. Sjögren syndrome is also associated with inflammatory disorders such as arthritis or lupus. Founded in 1986, the BSSA disseminates current information on the treatment of Sjögren syndrome to affected individuals and medical professionals. In addition to holding regular meetings in several locations throughout England, BSSA publishes journals, informational brochures, and a quarterly newsletter.
