Schirmers, blood tests and search for antinuclear antibody was done for all patients in both groups, with the measurement of salivary flow rate. Results Schirmers test was positive in all sSS and negative in all RA patients, whilst salivary flow rate was reduced in all sSS. Latex fixation test, ANA, Anti Ro and Anti La were reported significantly higher in sSS (p<0.01) Conclusions Secondary Sjogrens syndrome had a significantly positive rheumatoid factor, antinuclear antibody, anti Ro (SS-A) and anti La (SS-B) compared to rheumatoid patients without Sjogrens syndrome.
