Is there a role for TNFα antagonists in the treatment of Systemic Sclerosis (SSc)?

Most of the experts do not recommend the routine use of TNF-α antagonists in systemic sclerosis. Arthritis might be a potential indication, although controlled clinical trials are needed before general recommendations can be given. Clin Exp Rheumatol. 2011 Mar-Apr;29(2 Suppl 65):S40-5.
