This clinical trial was designed to study the safety and efficacy of blocking IL-1 in skin fibrosis of patients with diffuse cutaneous systemic sclerosis (dcSSc), and to test the hypothesis that inhibition of IL-1 by rilonacept will downregulate expression of the 2G SSc gene biomarker as a surrogate for the modified Rodnan skin score (MRSS).

Work consisting of a clinical trial involving one or more test treatments, at least one control treatment, specified outcome measures for evaluating the studied intervention, and a bias-free method for assigning patients to the test treatment. The treatment may be drugs, devices, or procedures studied for diagnostic, therapeutic, or prophylactic effectiveness. Control measures include placebos, active medicine, no-treatment, dosage forms and regimens, historical comparisons, etc. When randomization using mathematical techniques, such as the use of a random numbers table, is employed to assign patients to test or control treatments, the trial is characterized as a RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL.
Work consisting of a clinical trial that involves at least one test treatment and one control treatment, concurrent enrollment and follow-up of the test- and control-treated groups, and in which the treatments to be administered are selected by a random process, such as the use of a random-numbers table.
