Treatment of primary Sjogren syndrome: A systematic review. In primary Sjögren syndrome, evidence from controlled trials suggests benefits for pilocarpine and cevimeline for sicca features and topical cyclosporine for moderate or severe dry eye. Anti–tumor necrosis factor agents have not shown clinical efficacy, and larger controlled trials are needed to establish the efficacy of rituximab. Manuel Ramos-Casals, MD, PhD. JAMA. 2010;304(4):452-460. (Also see: Treatments for Sjogren Syndrome)
