Clinical differences between Thai systemic sclerosis (SSc) patients with positive versus negative anti-topoisomerase l (ATA).

 

A high prevalence of ATA positivity was found among Thai SSc patients and this was associated with a high frequency of hand deformity, anti-centromere negativity, a short duration of pulmonary fibrosis in Diffuse SSc and a lower frequency of Raynaud's phenomenon in Limited SSc. PubMed, Int J Rheum Dis, 10/08/2014. (Also see: Antibodies in Systemic Scleroderma)
