Research & Publications
Muscle disease in scleroderma is common and is associated with poor outcomes such as disability and sudden cardiac death. We have developed a sub-cohort of weak scleroderma patients and are beginning to study the mechanisms driving muscle disease and also interventions to halt or improve strength in this special group of patients.
Dr. Paik is a co-investigator involved in clinical trials focused in Refractory Dermatomyositis
