N2 - Systemic sclerosis (scleroderma; SSc) is a chronic con nective tissue disease characterized by inflammation within, and fibrosis of, the skin, vascular abnormalities, visceral damage, and the production of autoantibodies. SSc is divided generally into limited and diffuse forms, based on the extent of skin involvement. A group of conditions known as localized sclero-derma, which includes morphea, linear scleroderma, and en coup de sabre, is discussed in the chapter on Scleroderma Mimickers (Chap. 11). Diffuse SSc has a greater extent of skin involvement and is more likely to be associated with renal crisis, pulmonary fibrosis, and cardiomyopathy. Patients with diffuse SSc have a ...

BUFFALO, May 29 When the Buffalo Sabres last played in the Stanley Cup finals, Gerald Ford was in the White House, Saturday Night Live had yet to hit the airwaves and former Washington Capital and current Sabre Joe Juneau was 7 years old. The Sabres are not quite there yet, but they certainly can see it from their current location. Tonights 5-2 victory over the lifeless Toronto Maple Leafs gave the Sabres a 3-1 lead in this best-of-seven Eastern Conference finals series. A victory in Game 5 Monday night at Air Canada Centre would give the Sabres their first appearance in the Stanley Cup finals since 1975. To say the least, I was pleased with the effort, Sabres Coach Lindy Ruff said. I think the key to it all is that we really came out skating hard. With seven consecutive playoff victories at Marine Midland Arena, the Sabres are the only team in the playoffs that is undefeated at home. For the second time in as many games, their biggest offensive assault came in the third period. On Thursday ...
Introduction: Scleroderma is an autoimmune disease characterized by inflammation, vasculopathy, and fibrosis of skin, vasculative and internal organs. Delayed wound healing is a known complication of scleroderma. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether chronic wounds in scleroderma patients heal more slowly than chronic wounds of other etiology. Methods: This research was conducted through the Wound Etiology and Healing Study (WE-HEAL Study). The WE-HEAL Study is a biospecimen and data repository approved by the George Washington University IRB (041408). Subjects gave written informed consent for collection of their data. Scleroderma cases with wounds (n=25) and age and sex matched control patients with chronic wounds from other etiologies (n=25) were selected for analysis. Baseline demographics, comorbidities, wound size, time to healing, and pain score were compared between the two groups. Scleroderma wounds were further analyzed based on scleroderma classification (localized vs. systemic
Lipodermatosclerosis (also known as chronic panniculitis with lipomembranous changes, hypodermitis sclerodermiformis, sclerosing panniculitis, and stasis panniculitis) is a skin and connective tissue disease. It is a form of lower extremity panniculitis, an inflammation of the layer of fat under the epidermis. Pain may be the first noticed symptom. People with lipodermatosclerosis have tapering of their legs above the ankles, forming a constricting band resembling an inverted champagne bottle. In addition, there may be brownish-red pigmentation and induration. The exact cause of lipodermatosclerosis is unknown. Venous disease, such as venous incompetence, venous hypertension, and body mass (obesity) may be relevant to the underlying pathogenesis. Increased blood pressure in the veins (venous hypertension) can cause diffusion of substances, including fibrin, out of capillaries. Fibrotic tissue may predispose the tissue to ulceration. Recurrent ulceration and fat necrosis is associated ...
Having a disease that nobody has heard of is a lonely business. When even the doctors cannot recognise it, or tell you what is going to happen, it is lonelier still. So Scleroderma Awareness Day was created to tell people, including the medical community, what it means to have this disabling disease. June 29 is a day to recognise the bravery of those who live with scleroderma, and to demand equal treatment and equal care for people with scleroderma across Europe.. In February 2010 the1ST SYSTEMIC SCLEROSIS WORLD CONGRESS was held in Florence, Italy, with participants from countries from all over the world. At the world congress it was agreed that June 29th would be celebrated all over the world. Scleroderma day grew from zero to world scleroderma day in 2 years, and is celebrated in countries in Europe, Australia, Canada, Brazil, India and many more countries.. ...
The Research Grant Program is vital to help forward research on scleroderma, said Carol Feghali-Bostwick, Ph.D., researcher and Vice Chair of the Foundations Board of Directors and head of the research committee. We also hope that the program helps motivate new researchers to become interested in investigating scleroderma.. The two highest scoring research proposals received the Foundations Marta Marx and Mark Flapan awards. The Marta Marx Fund Eradication of Scleroderma Award went to Dr. Wu from the University of Miami. The award is funded by bequests from Marta Marx, who had scleroderma, and her brother Rudolph Juhl. The Mark Flapan Award was awarded to Dr. Koch from the University of Michigan. It is named in honor of the late psychologist and scleroderma patient.. The Walter A. Coyle Memorial Research Grant Award, which is made possible through the generosity of the New England Chapter, was presented to Dr. Trojanowska of Boston University School of Medicine. This is the third research ...

Background/Purpose: Pediatric localized scleroderma (LS) is typically categorized by the depth and extent of skin lesions into main subtypes: linear scleroderma, including linear trunk/limb and linear head, circumscribed morphea (superficial or deep), generalized plaque morphea, and mixed subtype. It has become increasingly recognized that LS effects more than the skin; greater than 50% of patients are affected by extra-cutaneous manifestations (ECMs), such as musculoskeletal and neurologic involvement. In systemic sclerosis (SSc), a related but typically more serious type of scleroderma, distinctive clinical subsets and specific patterns of organ involvement can be anticipated by autoantibody serological findings, which aid in the treatment and preventive care for these patients. The role of autoantibodies (autoAbs) in LS as a disease risk stratifier or ECM associations has only been partially evaluated with select antibodies. We suggest a wide array of SSc-associated autoAbs to investigate ...

Scleroderma also known as systemic sclerosis, is a systemic autoimmune disease characterized by damage to endothelial and smooth muscle cells of the small arteries. Replacement with fibrous material results, and there is an influx of inflammatory cells. Primarily affects skin and joints but can affect the heart and lungs, and digestive tract. Some types of scleroderma are rapidly progressive and deadly. Scleroderma is often treated with immunosuppressive drugs, and there is no known cure. Some investigators are looking at using the regenerative properties of cell therapy to mitigate the impact of scleroderma. Research is ongoing to evaluate the effects of stem cells on auto-immune conditions. As recently stated in Best Practices & Research Clinical Rheumatology in a review of Scleroderma, Stem cell transplantation seems to be promising in restarting the immune system to diminish fibrosis and restore microvasculature.

Deathsaurus! I wont forgive you for the evils you have wrought against the Earth!! Masterpiece Star Saber is the kind of figure whose release felt like a real event for Transformers fans. While not having quite as wide-ranging appeal as say, Ultra Magnus, both the character and the toy have an undeniable charisma that crosses cultural boundaries. Out of all the Masterpieces, Star Saber feels the most true to his roots as a childs toy. Again, much of this is thanks to his origins with veteran designer Kunio Okawara, who created a mechanical design that was suitable for both the animated and physical world. The only reason not to get this toy would be if you have some kind of strong aversion to Star Sabers design, as this toy is every aspect of that design realized at a high degree of accuracy. You can definitely feel Hisashi Yukis passion for this project, and that made for a fantastic Transformer. Star Saber was extremely popular upon release, with the toy topping Amazon listings for a ...
A discovery by Northwestern Medicine scientists could lead to potential new treatments for breaking the cycle of tissue scarring in people with scleroderma.. Fibrosis, or scarring, is a hallmark of the disease, and progressive tightening of the skin and lungs can lead to serious organ damage and, in some cases, death.. The concept for new therapeutic options centers on findings made by Swati Bhattacharyya, PhD, research assistant professor in Medicine-Rheumatology, who identified the role that a specific protein plays in promoting fibrosis.. Our results show how a damage-associated protein called fibronectin (FnEDA) might trigger immune responses that convert normal tissue repair into chronic fibrosis in people with scleroderma, Bhattacharyya said. We also found that FnEDA, which is undetectable in healthy adults, was markedly increased in the skin biopsies of patients with scleroderma.. The study was published April 16 in Science Translational Medicine.. Scleroderma remains a disease with ...

Im not into the SW graphic novels at all, so my knowledge of Darth Bane comes from the brilliant writing of Drew Karpyshyn. For those who have read his novels, you will know that Darth Bane was given a special curved or hooked lightsaber by his Master on Korriban. This lightsaber fit Banes physically imposing style of fighting. Therefore it has always irritated me that the common Bane lightsaber showing up among saber enthusiasts was a straight saber hilt (as seen in the comics). This became my cause; to bring Darth Banes lightsaber to life, in keeping with Drew Karpyshyns vision ...

Scleroderma means hard skin. It is a group of diseases that cause abnormal growth of connective tissue. Connective tissue is the material inside your body that gives your tissues their shape and helps keep them strong. In scleroderma, the tissue gets hard or thick. It can cause swelling or pain in your muscles and joints.. Symptoms of scleroderma include ...
Scleroderma is a rare disease of unknown etiology, which is characterized by thickening and hardening of skin due to an increased collagen production. A 44-year-old female patient with a scleroderma on the scalp known by our department, also presented an ipsilateral brain lesion since 2015, which was showing growth without any clinical symptomatology and the patient wanted the lesion to be removed. This atypical lesion underneath the scleroderma shows that diagnosis can be missed without brain imaging and biopsy.

The term scleroderma simply means hard skin. Many sufferers may have exhibited Raynauds phenomenon before they develop any signs of scleroderma. The skin signs include a stiffening of the skin of the fingers which becomes shiny and taut. The fingers feel stiff and gradually become less mobile and take on a characteristic appearance called sclerodactyly. The skin can also tighten in other areas such as on the face causing a small mouth. The skin becomes fragile causing dryness and ulcers ...
In essence, Scleroderma in all its forms is a chronic circulatory and connective tissue disorder in which the bodys defences attack its own organs and tissues. The Raynauds & Scleroderma Association website describes it thus:. Scleroderma is an uncommon disease of the immune system, blood vessels and connective tissue. In this condition the skin, usually of the hands and feet, becomes stiff, tight and shiny. As a result of changes in these three areas, the body produces too much collagen. Collagen, which is the major protein of the connective tissue, binds the body together and is found in the skin, blood vessels, joints and internal organs, such as the kidneys, heart, lungs and bowel. There are several types of collagen and different forms are found in different parts of the body. They are produced by cells called fibroblasts. When fibroblasts produce too much collagen it results in fibrosis, i.e. thickening.. In addition to affecting the fingers, the fibrosis may spread to other areas and ...

En coup de sabre is a type of linear scleroderma characterized by a linear band of atrophy and a furrow in the skin that occurs in the frontal or frontoparietal scalp. Multiple lesions of en coup de sabre may coexist in a single patient, with one report suggesting that the lesions followed Blaschko lines . Unlike skin in localized morphea, skin in linear scleroderma may be fixed to underlying tissue. Calcinosis may rarely occur. Cutaneous changes accompanying the facial hemiatrophy associated with the Parry-Romberg syndrome may be similar to those found in en coup de sabre . Serologic abnormalities may include anti-nuclear antibodies, anti-single-stranded DNA antibodies, and rheumatoid factor. Eosinophilia may be present and may correlate with disease activity. A polyclonal IgG and IgM hypergammaglobulinemia may also be present and is found more often with severe cases and with clinical progression ...

Myth: Scleroderma is a disease that only affects the skin.. Truth: Scleroderma is primarily characterized by thickening of the skin, but this chronic connective tissue disease can affect the blood vessels and internal organs in addition to the skin. Localized scleroderma affects certain parts of the body (usually the skin), but with systemic scleroderma the entire body can be affected - skin, kidneys, digestion, joint, teeth, lungs, heart and Raynauds Phenomenon..

I was diagnosed with limited scleroderma when I was 22 yrs old. I had a finger that turned blue, stayed blue for a couple days, was admitted to the hospital, all kinds of tests were done...and 6 days later I was discharged with my limited scleroderma diagnosis. I now know what a blessing that quick diagnosis was. My first 5 yrs with scleroderma were full of struggles; lots of finger ulcers, lots of medications, lots of hospital visits, lots of doctors. However, also during those years, I met my first scleroderma sister, Susan Wells. She showed me that I was not alone. What a blessing to have a scleroderma sister that could relate to my struggles. Susan and I began a scleroderma support group in Springfield, IL. Unfortunately, soon thereafter, I moved to Omaha, NE. Terry Christensen had started a support group in Omaha, Ne and I attended regularly. After a few months, Terry asked if I would take over the leadership of the support group. I became the Omaha support group leader with enthusiasm! ...
BACKGROUND. Scleroderma is an autoimmune disease with a characteristic vascular pathology. The vasculopathy associated with scleroderma is one of the major contributors to the clinical manifestations of the disease. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS. We used immunohistochemical and mRNA in situ hybridization techniques to characterize this vasculopathy and showed with morphometry that scleroderma has true capillary rarefaction. We compared skin biopsies from 23 scleroderma patients and 24 normal controls and 7 scleroderma patients who had undergone high dose immunosuppressive therapy followed by autologous hematopoietic cell transplant. Along with the loss of capillaries there was a dramatic change in endothelial phenotype in the residual vessels. The molecules defining this phenotype are: vascular endothelial cadherin, a supposedly universal endothelial marker required for tube formation (lost in the scleroderma tissue), antiangiogenic interferon α (overexpressed in the scleroderma dermis) and ...
Roughly 300,000 people in the United States suffer from scleroderma. This chronic connective tissue disease results from an over-production of collagen in the skin and other organs. Scleroderma usually appears in people between the ages of 25 and 55. Women get scleroderma more often than men. The disease worsens slowly over years.. There are two types of scleroderma: localized scleroderma, which involves only the skin, and systemic scleroderma, which involves the skin and other organs, such as the heart, lungs, kidneys, intestine and gallbladder. Typical symptoms of the skin include skin hardening, skin that is abnormally dark or light, skin thickening, shiny hands and forearms, small white lumps beneath the skins surface, tight facial skin, ulcerations on the fingers or toes and change in color of the fingers and toes from exposure to heat or cold. Other symptoms impact bones, muscles, lungs and the digestive tract.. There is no known cause of scleroderma, nor is there a cure. There are ...

Protein and mRNA levels of SMAD3, but not of SMAD4 or SMAD7, were variably elevated in scleroderma fibroblasts compared with those from healthy controls. In sharp contrast to control fibroblasts, which displayed predominantly cytoplasmic localization of SMAD3/4 in the absence of exogenous TGFβ, in scleroderma fibroblasts SMAD3 and SMAD4 consistently showed elevated nuclear localization. Furthermore, phosphorylated SMAD2/3 levels were elevated and nuclear localization of phosphorylated SMAD2/3 was increased, suggesting activation of the SMAD pathway in scleroderma fibroblasts. Blockade of autocrine TGFβ signaling with antibodies or by expression of dominant-negative TGFβRII failed to normalize SMAD subcellular distribution, suggesting that elevated nuclear SMAD import was due to alterations downstream of the TGFβ receptors. The activity of a SMAD-responsive minimal promoter-reporter construct was enhanced in transiently transfected scleroderma fibroblasts. ...

Scleroderma is a disease of the connective tissue featuring prominent skin thickening. Scleroderma can lead to scarring, blood vessel problems, varying degrees of inflammation, and is apparently a manifestation of an overactive immune system. Scleroderma is classified into localized scleroderma and systemic sclerosis. CREST syndrome is a limited form of systemic sclerosis. Patients with scleroderma can have specific antibodies (ANA, anticentromere or antitopoisomerase) in their blood, which strongly suggests an autoimmune etiology ...

They made that signing within the first 30 minutes by signing Andrew Hammond to a one-year one-way contract for the 2019/2020 season. Hell earn $700k whether hes in Rochester or Buffalo.. Hammond made a name for himself when he became first goalie in NHL history to earn 21 wins in first 27 games with 20 of those in his first season with Ottawa.. The Sabres were in need of a number three goalie to not only lead Rochester but also be capable of filling in on the Sabres roster if there was a need to replace Carter Hutton or Linus Ullmark. Hammond will likely start the season in Rochester along with Jonas Johansson. Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen had off season hip surgery and isnt expected to be healthy until November.. Hammond played in 33 games last season with the Iowa Wild for a 19-12-2 record, 2.81 GAA, and .910SV%. He also appeared in 11 ...
The Sounding of the Atmosphere using Broadband Emission Radiometry (SABER) instrument is one of four instruments on NASAs TIMED (Thermosphere Ionosphere Mesosphere Energetics Dynamics) satellite. The primary goal of the SABER experiment is to provide the data needed to advance our understanding of the fundamental processes governing the energetics, chemistry, dynamics, and transport in the mesosphere and lower thermosphere. SABER accomplishes this with global measurements of the atmosphere using a 10-channel broadband limb-scanning infrared radiometer covering the spectral range from 1.27 µm to 17 µm. These measurements are used to provide vertical profiles of kinetic temperature, pressure, geopotential height, volume mixing ratios for the trace species O3, CO2, H2O, [O], and [H], volume emission rates for 5.3 µm NO, 2.1 µm OH, 1.6 µm OH, and 1.27 µm O2(1Δ), cooling and heating rates for many CO2, O3, and O2 bands, and chemical heating rates for 7 important reactions ...
Their third and fourth lines usually are not good enough to chip in consistently and the protection is a mess with Jack Johnson, Libor Hajek, Anthony Bitetto and Brendan Smith all getting regular minutes. Those excited about catching a Rangers vs. Sabres sport should be excited regardless of where the sport takes place, as each teams play at energetic venues that focus on fan expertise. The Rangers house video games are performed at Madison Square Garden in New York, NY, whereas the Sabres house games are performed at KeyBank Center in Buffalo, NY. Following a back-to-again break up in Washington over the weekend, the Blueshirts are again in motion tonight in opposition to the lowly Buffalo Sabres.. The New York Rangers havent precisely lit the world on fire in 2021, either. The Rangers have been expected to contend for a playoff spot this season, but a gradual begin and a few unforeseen personnel points have put New York behind the 8-ball in the East Division. The Blueshirts come into this ...

Der 26-jährige Stürmer hat in 61 Spielen in dieser Saison 40 Punkte (20 Tore, 20 Assists) erzielt. Insgesamt verbuchte er in seinen neun NHL-Spielzeiten 340 Zähler (177 Tore, 163 Vorlagen) in 557 Partien für die Sabres, Winnipeg Jets und Atlanta Thrashers.
In vitro studies have shown that imatinib 1mM inhibits strongly the growth of cutaneous fibroblasts. The hypothesis is that imatinib inhibits PDGFR which is known to be a potential target for the molecule, as recently also proposed after the discovery of autoantibodies activating the PDGF receptors. Recent data indicate that TGFb is also a potential target of imatinib. Cutaneous scleroderma is characterized by progressive cutaneous fibrosis caused by hyperactive dermal fibroblasts. Since no established treatment for skin sclerosis in scleroderma is currently available. This study will test the safety and efficacy of imatinib in the treatment of patients with scleroderma and severe cutaneous involvement ...
Diffuse Systemic scleroderma with severe pulmonary fibrosis. April 2008. My name is Kristine. I use my nickname Kramstine. Kram means hug in Danish which is the language we speak in my country Denmark. I am 31 years old. Here is my history before AP:. In the autumn 2001 I was diagnosed with Diffuse Systemic Scleroderma[/b]. My symptoms started the same year in spring. First I felt heartburn for no good reason and started waking up with stiff, swollen hands/fingers in the morning (this continued most of the day, and I also developed raynauds syndrome[/b]). This was what made me go to the doctor at first. He didn?t have much to say, but when all my joints (knees, wrists, elboes?) started hurting and I couldn?t walk the stairs without pain, I had another doctor check me. He did some blood tests that showed I had arthritis. From there till the final conclusion, that my disease is scleroderma, there were a lot of testing and a lot of waiting. In the meanwhile I had had a cough that wouldn?t go away ...
Not everyone with scleroderma develops this degree of skin hardening. However, it is this symptom that has earned scleroderma the nickname of the disease that turns people to stone.. Systemic scleroderma often affects the hands. The initial stage is swelling (edema), which can last for weeks, months, or years. Often the swelling is intermittent and worse in the morning. It can cause the fingers to look like sausages, with far fewer wrinkles. Skin tightness in the hands can make it impossible to pinch the skin on the fingers ...

RESULTS Diabetic skin manifestations were detected in 168 of 238 (71%) IDDM patients and in 18 of 122 (14%) of the control subjects. Ichthyosiform skin changes of the shins, scleroderma-like skin changes, tinea pedis, and dry scaly palms were detected in 48 vs. 7%, 39 vs. 0%, 32 vs. 7%, and 21 vs. 0.8% of the patients and control subjects, respectively. In the diabetic patients, a significant association was found between ichthyosis of the shins and sclerodermalike skin changes of the hand (P , 0.001) and between scleroderma-like skin changes and the skin dryness of the palms (P , 0.0001). When diabetic risk factors were considered, diabetes duration was significantly associated with scleroderma-like skin changes and ichthyosis of the shins (P , 0.0001). The latter was also found to be related to diabetic retinopathy (P , 0.0001). Keratosis pilaris was present in 21% of the patients versus 9% in control subjects and was found to be exclusively associated with high BMI.. ...

Saber Tooth Tiger was unearthed back in 2013, our first Imperial IPA and our first rarity release. Named after a memorably incorrect answer from family game night, this brew quickly won a passionate following in Cincinnati, drawing thirsty crowds to haphazard release parties in our taproom. Since then, our ferocious feline has blazed a prehistoric path from draft to bombers to - for the first time in 2018 - cans. Intensely hoppy but sneakily drinkable, Saber Tooth Tiger is released once per year in very limited quantities.
