National Jewish Health has several ongoing clinical trials for patients with scleroderma. They diagnose and treat adults with all types of systemic sclerosis (limited or diffuse scleroderma).

Scleroderma often takes many years to diagnose because of insidious onset, vague initial symptoms, and low physician and public awareness. It is typically diagnosed and treated by rheumatologists, but because it is a rare and very complex disease, there are only a few dozen scleroderma specialists in the United States. Expert care can be crucial for proper screening, diagnosis, patient education, clinical trials, and treatment.
