  1. Skin Gene Expression Is Prognostic for the Trajectory of Skin Disease in Patients With Diffuse Cutaneous Systemic Sclerosis. Skin gene expression of biomarkers may provide guidance in decision–making about which patients should be considered for aggressive therapies and/or for clinical trials. PubMed, Arthritis Rheumatol, 2018 Jun;70(6):912-919. (Also see Diffuse Scleroderma and Skin Fibrosis) This item was posted in the ISN Newsroom.

  7. CD16-positive circulating monocytes and fibrotic manifestations of systemic sclerosis (SSc). These results suggest that CD16+ monocytes are associated with the main fibrotic manifestations of SSc and their role in the pathogenesis of fibrosis in this autoimmune disorder should therefore be further considered.

  8. Topical Scleroderma Medicine Seen to Lessen Fibrosis and Inflammation in Mouse Model. A new topical medicine, called SM04755, significantly decreased and even reversed fibrosis and inflammation in in vitro and in vivo mouse studies of scleroderma. Scleroderma News, 11/08/2016. (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.
  9. Pan peroxisome proliferator–activated receptors (PPAR) agonist IVA337 is effective in prevention and treatment of experimental skin fibrosis. These findings indicate that simultaneous activation of all three PPAR isoforms exerts a dampening effect on inflammation and fibrosis, making IVA337 a potentially effective therapeutic candidate in the treatment of fibrotic diseases including SSc. PubMed, Ann rheumatologist Dis, 2016 Dec;75(12):2175-2183. (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.
  10. A personalized physical therapy program or usual care for patients with systemic sclerosis (SSc): A randomized controlled trial. A personalized physical therapy program did not reduce disability at 12 months but had short–term benefits for patients with SSc. PubMed, Arthritis Care Res (Hoboken), 10/12/2016. (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.
  11. An Autotaxin–LPA–IL–6 Amplification Loop Drives Scleroderma (SSc) Fibrosis. Results suggest that concurrent inhibition of two pathways, LPA and IL–6, may be an effective therapeutic strategy for SSc fibrosis. PubMed, Arthritis Rheumatol, 07/07/2016. (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.
  12. Scleroderma Mouse Study Suggests Estrogen Therapy Might Slow Skin Fibrosis. The study confirmed that estrogens play a role in protecting against skin fibrosis in experimental models representative of systemic sclerosis and the next step will be to begin investigating the potential role of hormone therapies as a treatment. Scleroderma News, 06/13/2016. (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. M10, a caspase cleavage product of the hepatocyte growth factor receptor, interacts with Smad2 and demonstrates antifibrotic properties in vitro and in vivo. M10 peptide interacts with Smad2 and demonstrates strong antifibrotic effects in vitro and in vivo in an animal model of lung fibrosis and should be considered as a potential therapeutic agent for systemic sclerosis and other fibrosing diseases.

    Sclerodactyly

    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
