The leading news source for information on scleroderma research – Scleroderma News (SclerodermaNews.com) – has just published an interview with Ed Harris, founder of the Scleroderma Education Project, about a research poster that he recently presented at the American Society for Apheresis (ASFA) annual meeting in early May, 2016. The poster was a review of all of the published research on the use of therapeutic plasma exchange (sometimes called TPE or plasmapheresis) to treat systemic scleroderma. Here is a link to the story: http://sclerodermanews.com/2016/05/17/tpe-for-scleroderma-interview-with-edward-harris/.
If you are not familiar with this research, here is a link to a post we did recently about the ASFA conference and the TPE review paper: http://sclerodermainfo.org/post-tpe-review/. The poster is being edited into research paper format for submission to a suitable research journal in the near future.
We wish to thank Scleroderma News for continuing to cover our efforts to advance scleroderma education and research.
