Malignancies in Italian Patients with Systemic Sclerosis (SSc) Positive for Anti-RNA Polymerase III Antibodies. In a cohort of Italian patients with SSc we observed a significant association between malignancies synchronous to SSc onset and positivity for anti-RNAP III antibodies, similar to that described in American patients with SSc. Paolo Airo. The Journal of Rheumatology jrheum.101144. (Also see: Cancer and Scleroderma and Antibodies)

Hi Everyone,

This caught my eye since Gareth is + for Anti-RNAP 1/111....and the titers keep going higher with each testing. It would be nice if they listed the malignancies that they see with scleroderma patients....at least I could be on the lookout for something!!! :(

Take care, Everyone.
