Interesting article.  A lot seems to be going in to finding a cure for MS but so little by comparison into Scleroderma.  By the time stem cell transplants become mainstream, it could be too late for many of us.

 

Stem cell transplantation could stop the march of Scleroderma as much as it could MS.  Same goes for other autoimmune diseases.

 

Autoimmune disease is becoming so much more common, yet money is still being pumped into cancer and heart research.  Time for a bit more effort going into helping those with autoimmune disease.

I would agree with you, Dimarzio; unfortunately, autoimmune diseases don't seem to attract the same interest and sympathy as other better known diseases.:crying-kleenex:
