Healthy Living: FDA Approved Drug for Scleroderma
Scleroderma is an autoimmune disease that slowly and painfully turns skin and organs into scar tissue.
There have been several therapies used to treat the various symptoms, but as Courtney Hunter explains in Healthy Living, the very first FDA approved drug is now on the market.
Commonly reported side effects with Ofev include gastrointestinal discomfort, headache, weight loss, and hypertension.
This new drug is also being used for people with other lung diseases such as COPD.
