Ciprofloxacin utility as antifibrotic in the skin of patients with scleroderma. Our results suggest that oral administration of ciprofloxacin for 6 months reduces the severity of symptoms affecting the skin of patients with systemic scleroderma, and does so without important secondary effects.

Interesting, but this is an antibiotic, taking it for 6 months, I dont know... But good that they are trying all kind of drugs. I believe the solution is somewhere around us and that it is very simple. They just have to find it!
