Current Clinical Trials

Do you have Scleroderma?
Have you suffered from ulcers or sores on your fingertips?
Do you currently have an ulcer or sore that has opened within the last 8 weeks?

  • We are currently conducting a trial of riociguat (AdempasŪ) vs. placebo in scleroderma-associated digital ulcers.
  • Riociguat is approved by the FDA in the US for another indication: pulmonary hypertension.
  • There is a 50/50 chance of receiving either the study drug: riociguat or placebo (which contains no active ingredients). This portion of the study will continue for 16 weeks.
  • After completing the 16 weeks on riociguat/ placebo, the participant may have the opportunity to continue in the study for an additional 16 weeks during which they will receive the study medication: riociguat.
  • The study drug and associated assessments are of no cost to the participant.
  • Patient stipend is included and if traveling from some distance associated travel costs can be covered for the participant by the study.
