#SSc16 – Scleroderma News Top Articles Selection for the Congress

The 4th Systemic Sclerosis World Congress will take place in Lisbon, Portugal, from 18th to 20th February and Scleroderma News will be covering the whole event. Even though this is a systemic sclerosis (SSc) congress, a lot will be discussed about pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), which is considered a leading cause of mortality among systemic scleroderma patients.

Therefore, we decided to chose one article per satellite symposium that Scleroderma News team is  planning to cover. Here are the articles:

1. Bayer’s Adempas For CTEPH, PAH Confirmed Safe & Effective in Long-Term Studies
