The Zsuzsanna McMahan Lab conducts translational research that seeks to identify the novel anti...gens in scleroderma and to define the target tissue in this disease. We are conducting two active clinical research trials, including one that studies skin biopsy specimens as biomarkers of scleroderma and the response to mycophenolate mofetil (MMF or Cellcept). The other study is a gastrointestinal involvement registry that follows patients who are experiencing GERD, small bowel bacterial overgrowth, constipation, fecal incontinence and gastroparesis to see if there is improvement in symptoms after a change in treatment is implemented. view moreResearch Areas: gastrointestinal system, rheumatology, biomarkers, scleroderma, antigens, mycophenolate mofetil
