Elevation of Serum Lymphotactin Levels in Patients with Systemic Sclerosis (SSc).

Elevated serum lymphotactin levels correlate with relatively milder manifestations in diffuse SSc (dSSc), especially lower severity of lung involvement, suggesting that lymphotactin may play a role in the development of dSSc.
