B Lymphocytes are thought to play an important role in the pathophysiology of systemic sclerosis. In this study, the profibrosing role of B lymphocytes of patients with systemic sclerosis ...
Systemic sclerosis is a systemic connective tissue disease with physical and mental disturbances. Based on a pilot study the feasibility and effectiveness of a novel, self-developed concep...
Systemic sclerosis is a rare disease. The early cardiac disease affects 10% of patients sclérodemiques. Heart transplantation in the early cardiac involvement in systemic sclerosis is ex...
By contrast to other proinflammatory cytokines which are found up-regulated in the skin of patients with psoriasis, atopic dermatitis or systemic sclerosis, IL-34 is the only cytokine that...
The aim of this study was to assess serum N-terminal proBNP (NT-proBNP) in systemic sclerosis patients and to establish whether it reflects the severity of RV overload.
We analyzed the prevalence of sarcopenia among systemic sclerosis (SSc) patients with respect to quality of life, disability, organ involvement, and muscle function.
We describe an unusual case of blue toe syndrome as the primary and solitary manifestation of systemic sclerosis. The possible cause was long-term occupational exposure in construction work. Blue toe ...
To evaluate olfactory function in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), systemic sclerosis (SSc) and healthy controls over a 2-year period, and to determine the association of olfactory dysfunction with...
Our study compares the biomechanical properties of the cornea in patients with long-term pre-existing (for at least 10 years) systemic sclerosis (SSc) with those of healthy suspects.
To systematically review fatigue in systemic sclerosis (SSc) in terms of prevalence, features, correlates, predictors and management.
A form of multiple sclerosis characterized by a progressive deterioration in neurologic function which is in contrast to the more typical relapsing remitting form. If the clinical course is free of distinct remissions, it is referred to as primary progressive multiple sclerosis. When the progressive decline is punctuated by acute exacerbations, it is referred to as progressive relapsing multiple sclerosis. The term secondary progressive multiple sclerosis is used when relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis evolves into the chronic progressive form.

Inflammation of the retinal vasculature with various causes including infectious disease; LUPUS ERYTHEMATOSUS, SYSTEMIC; MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS; BEHCET SYNDROME; and CHORIORETINITIS.
Extraoral body-section radiography depicting an entire maxilla, or both maxilla and mandible, on a single film.
Historically, a heterogeneous group of acute and chronic diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, progressive systemic sclerosis, dermatomyositis, etc. This classification was based on the notion that "collagen" was equivalent to "connective tissue", but with the present recognition of the different types of collagen and the aggregates derived from them as distinct entities, the term "collagen diseases" now pertains exclusively to those inherited conditions in which the primary defect is at the gene level and affects collagen biosynthesis, post-translational modification, or extracellular processing directly.

A non-glycosylated form of interferon beta-1 that has a serine at position 17. It is used in the treatment of both RELAPSING-REMITTING MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS and CHRONIC PROGRESSIVE MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS.
