Proteonomics of Systemic Sclerosis and Response to Abatacept
Systemic sclerosis (SSc) is a chronic disease that causes widespread fibrosis of the skin, lung and kidney, resulting in substantial mortality. We aim to identify new diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers for SSc and identify the inflammatory mechanisms for this disease. The results from this proposal will provide insights into the diagnosis, pathogenesis, and treatment of SSc.
