That's very interesting.  I've been seeing a number of articles lately where they seem to be identifying certain cells or binding cells that they are starting to identify as problems.  I hope that means we are moving in the right direction.

Also, I am on the State Board now for Scleroderma, and we held a conference call for our "winter" meeting last Saturday.  One of the Doctors on the board (from a well known hospital) was telling us that a research study he has been involved in has also been identifying that Vit D (lack of) is playing a huge role in Scleroderma.  It's been known for a while now that people with autoimmunes in general seem to have trouble absorbing Vit D, but the way he was talking, they have made some type of key discovery in how some type of binding agent is blocking the absorption of it.
