Dr. Chung: The primary goal of the Stanford Scleroderma Center is to provide outstanding multi-specialty care for patients with scleroderma, with experts from Rheumatology, Dermatology, Pulmonology, Gastroenterology, Cardiology, Immunology, and Hand/Vascular Medicine working together to take care of each patient as a whole. At our Scleroderma Clinic, each patient is examined by a team, including physicians from Rheumatology, Dermatology, and Internal Medicine. We are also actively carrying out state-of-the-art research using tissue samples from patients with scleroderma and working with basic scientists to better understand what causes scleroderma, and to find markers in the skin or blood that can tell us which patients will go on to develop serious complications, like pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). In particular, we hope to develop a simple blood test to identify scleroderma patients who will ultimately develop PAH.
