What is the success rate of diffuse scleroderma
patients treated with methotrexate?
No medications have been found that are accepted or effective in treating scleroderma in all patients. Methotrexate is one of a number of medicines that are used. The effectiveness would only be adequate in a minority of persons. It is most effective when used early in the disease.
Thank you for your question.
