    I have never investigated epidermal growth factor, and do not recall any studies on it.

    I only recall seeing it mentioned, and don't have a clear idea of the context. A reasoned response will take more time.

    I am currently looking into an association with connective tissue disorders. This turned up in Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and a less well-known CTD. I am now wondering how many people here have a diagnosis of undifferentiated connective tissue disorder (UCTD).

    Most doctors think of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) as an autoimmune disease. The autoantibodies target connective tissue. This raises questions about connective tissue problems prior to clinical onset. There are also known associations between CTD and mast cell activation disorders.
