Abstract: Thirty-six patients with primary Sjögren's symptome participated in a randomised double-blind, crossover, 3-week, study to compare the effect of Efamol (1500 mg X 2) with that of Placebo. Efamol contains 9% of the prostaglandin-El precursor gamma-linolenic acid, which is presumed to occur in reduced levels in Sjögren's syndrome. Efamol treatment improved the Schirmer-I-test (P < 0.03) while values of Break-up time,- van Bijsterveld score, corneasensitivity, tear-lysozyme and nuclear chromatin in conjunctival epithelial cells did not reach the statistical 0.05 level.
