Use of tocilizumab in systemic sclerosis: A brief literature review
In this study, we conducted a literature review to assess the safety and efficacy of TCZ in SS. We found 52 articles, 10 of which we selected after evaluating the articles. In a randomized clinical trial, TCZ showed a nonsignificant improvement in the degree of skin induration, while another observational study showed neutral results. In this same clinical trial, the functional respiratory parameters showed a certain degree of stabilization. The safety profile of TCZ is acceptable; however, the current evidence regarding treatment of SS with TCZ is highly limited, although the drug could have a beneficial effect in skin di...
