Healthy Living: Systemic Sclerosis

Imagine your skin and your internal organs slowly thickening and hardening, and there’s no cure.

About 100,000 Americans have been diagnosed with systemic sclerosis.

Results from a new drug study are promising for treatment and relief from this rare autoimmune disease of the connective tissue.

Phase three will include a larger group of patients and will probably measure additional outcomes like improved lung function.

Phase three begins within six months.
