Treatment of Interstitial Lung Disease

1 post in this topic

This is a copy of a post to the UK forum, which resulted in some good posts from some very nice people. I am now posting it on the International site, in the hope that some more information may come to light.

 

My wife has had diffuse scleroderma for about 15 months, with an associated Interstitial Lung Disease (UIP). She also has the usual digestive tract problems associated with scleroderma, but these seem to be being managed quite well.

 

The chest consultant is recommending a course of treatment involving low-dose steroids and immunosuppressants (Prednisolone, CYC then AZA).

 

The treatment has been the subject of some large scale studies in the UK and USA.

 

Can anyone share their experience of this treatment combination?

 

Thanks in advance

 

Andrew
