SICCA is dedicated to the well-being of individuals with Sjögren's disease.

The Sjogren's International Collaborative Clinical Alliance (SICCA) comprises a group of clinical and laboratory investigators from around the world who developed the International Sjögren's Syndrome Biorepository and Data Registry from 2003 to 2013.

The SICCA Biorepository and Data Registry has the goal of promoting high-quality, cutting-edge research in the area of Sjögren's disease with emphasis on diagnosis, epidemiology, causes, prevention and treatment.

The SICCA Biorepository and Data Registry was initially funded by the US Public Health Service/National Institutes of Health (NIH) National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR), the National Eye Institute (NEI), and the National Institutes of Health Office for Research on Women's Health, Bethesda, MD, USA (contract # N01 DE-32636), then subsequently by NIDCR contract HHSN268201300057C and more recently by NIDCR grant U01DE028891.
