The DeSScipher Project

DeSScipher is the acronym for ”to decipher the optimal management of Systemic Sclerosis”. It is an international EU-funded research project, and in fact currently the largest research project ever for Systemic sclerosis. It mainly consists of five observational, non-interventional studies, conducted over a period of at least 3 years. The aim of this project is to improve the treatment strategies for Systemic Sclerosis, and thus to improve the quality of everyday life for patients living with their disease in the future. Moreover, DeSScipher aims to improve the education of patients and physicians, and to achieve a better care for patients by the development of accepted evidence-based clinical guidelines.
