A review of the effects of statins in systemic sclerosis (SSc).

 

Statins seemed safe and well tolerated in SSc, although larger longer–term multi–site randomized trials are needed to further determine the role of statins as adjunctive treatment. PubMed, Semin Arthritis Rheum, 11/02/2015. (Also see Statins)
