Anti Th/to

11 posts in this topic

Hi All,

I'm trying to find out more about Anti-TH/TO, for which I am positive. I cannot find any links. Can someone direct me to where I can find more information?

Thanks in advance,

Jennifer :)

Jennifer,

 

Here's an abstract from the Journal of Rheumatology, March 28, 2006.

Anti-Th/To-Positivity in a Cohort of Patients with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

 

I think you will find it quite interesting, especially the statement in the conclusion:

 

"Given the high specificity of Th/To-positivity for SSc, our data suggest that these subjects may have SSc sine scleroderma, and that their prognosis is no different from those with IPF."

 

Hope this helps.

Thanks My Ladies!

 

Janey, the link you sent seems to be an abstract from the article I sent you. Three of the authors, K Brown, S West and A Fischer are my doctors. I guess it's a famous article now?

 

Have a happy weekend.

 

Jen

Hi Jennifer,

 

Try doing a search on Google Scholar for abstracts. Use the Keyword for the search as "anti th/to".

 

Good Luck,

Greetings, Laura. I see you have been around for some time -- glad you have finally decided to post. Excellent advice on using Google Scholar and I see you have provided quotes around your keyword. This is particularly useful when using words which are less specific that are apt to return a broad result.

 

On the home page of this site, there is a search box which will help you find articles which have already been approved for posting. Others, such as the one Janey linked to, will continue to be added by our hardworking researchers. You can also search in the Forums directly using the Search Forums button above, searching by topic or post. This will return any items that others may have posted within the Forums. In this case, the keywords will be highlighted.


Warm wishes,

Jefa

Hi Carrie,

 

Thanks for responding. I was diagnosed 2 years ago and haven't done much posting the last 1-1 1/2 years because I am pursuing a career change and have gone back to school to complete my Bachelor of Science in Nursing. I was trying to be in denial for a time when my primary care physician and rheumatologist told me I can't keep doing what I do. Finally, I woke up and decided to take their advice. I don't have much time due to school, work, and family responsibilities, but I still like to "lurk" now and then.

 

There are so many new people on the board, I feel out of touch. I do still enjoy reading the posts and wish everybody, including the newbies, well!

 

Warmest,

Laura
