Pharmacotherapy of systemic sclerosis (SSc). Although there is no effective disease-modifying treatment for patients with SSc, quality of life, morbidity and mortality can be improved by using targeted therapy directed at affecting the consequences of damage to lungs, blood vessels, kidneys and the gastrointestinal tract. Innovative approaches to treating SSc are under intense investigation. AE Postlethwaite. Expert Opin Pharmacother. 2010 Apr;11(5):789-806. (Also see: Medications and Scleroderma Treatments)
