STUDIES LOOKING FOR PATIENT VOLUNTEERS

Through research and treatment, we are aiming for an eventual cure for this disease.

Mitsubishi

We are looking for patients to test a new oral medication for sufficient skin involvement (diffuse systemic sclerosis) in a one-year placebo-controlled trial. Patients should have disease less than or equal to five years duration and should have active skin disease. Low-dose prednisone can be continued but other medications will need to be stopped. If you are possibly interested, please call.
