Collagen Degradation Products And Inflammatory Activity In Systemic (SSc) And Localized Scleroderma (LSc). In patients with SSc our data have shown the most intensive collagen degradation and simultanously an active inflammation which reflects the pathological processes in the skin and visceral organs, compared with psoriasis vulgaris patients and healthy inviduals. In LSc group collagen degradation was similar to that in control groups but a certain inflammatory activity was observed. R. Becvar THU0242 EULAR 2007.
