  12. High–frequency ultrasound (HFU) of the skin in systemic sclerosis (SSc): an exploratory study to examine correlation with disease activity and to define the minimally detectable difference. In the study, HFU was able to measure skin thickness, it correlated quantitatively with a valid measure of SSc activity, and a minimal detectable difference was identified. PubMed, Arthritis Res Ther, 2018 Aug 16;20(1):181. (Also see Skin Fibrosis) This item was posted in the ISN Newsroom. Please check the newsroom daily for updates on scleroderma and other related articles.
  13. TLR4-dependent fibroblast activation drives persistent organ fibrosis in skin and lung. The results suggest that systemic scleroderma patients with high TLR4 activity might show optimal therapeutic response to selective inhibitors of MD2/TLR4 complex formation. PubMed, JCI Insight, 2018 Jul 12;3(13). (Also see Fibroblasts, Skin Fibrosis and Pulmonary Fibrosis Research) This item was posted in the ISN Newsroom.

  24. Hi all!! I hope summer is finding everyone nice and warm. I have a question, my sclerodactyly is so bad I can't even get my shoes on my feet and close my hands. Does anyone have any relief ideas that help them? I go see my rheumatologist Thursday but he never has any ideas for me. Thanks, Marsha
