Coagulation and Autoimmunity in Scleroderma Interstitial Lung Disease (SSc-ILD). The identification of links between autoimmunity and coagulation would provide new insights into the pathogenesis of pulmonary fibrosis associated with autoimmune diseases and further acknowledge the importance of thrombin in the development of SSc-ILD. Ludwicka-Bradley A. (PubMed) J Rheumatol. 2010 Dec 15. (Also see: Pulmonary Fibrosis)

That's a very good link and article, Jeannie.

I had to read it through carefully several times to get the gist of it, but found it very interesting. :)
