Cheryl Argiros of Coventry, Conn., already has participated in four clinical trials of experimental treatments for scleroderma, a disease that turns skin to the consistency of mahogany. It has scarred her lungs and turned her hands into claws. Researchers say the pros-pects of developing new therapies to treat the connective-tissue disease have never been better. About a dozen new treatments -- including vaccines, stem cell transplants and specialized antibodies currently -- are being tested in patients.

James Chichester-Clark, 79, whose tenure as prime minister of Northern Ireland from 1969 to 1971 was marked by escalating sectarian violence that brought more British troops, died Friday after a short illness. Mr. Chichester-Clark, who was given the title Lord Moyola in 1971, was prime minister in the British province when rioting in Belfast and Londonderry forced him to ask Prime Minister Harold Wilson's government to send in troops. The killings of three British soldiers in Belfast in March 1971 sparked a new Protestant campaign demanding that Mr. Chichester-Clark resign.

DAD, I think it's gonna be all right," Leslie Moore told his father, as he looked up from his hospital bed that winter evening. He knew better, but it seemed like the right thing to say at that moment. He felt a little stronger. He thought maybe he could try to drink something. He felt good having his family bundled around him. But, at 43, having spent nine years fighting a hideous disease called progressive systemic sclerosis, or scleroderma, he knew that his life was now running out. His lungs were shot, and so were his kidneys and his pancreas.

THE FATHER'S body seemed blessed by the gods, and the son's cursed. Lenny Moore has spent long dark hours trying to figure out the nature of such things. His son Leslie is gone more than four years now. And next week, for the fourth time, the father will honor his son and offer his small gesture of hope to the unpredictable future. Lenny Moore is the Baltimore Colts Hall of Famer who electrified a city once upon a time. Leslie Moore was the son stricken by the disease called scleroderma.

They watched the Ravens' football playoffs together, muffling their whoops in the hush of a hospital. Les Moore lay propped in bed in the critical care wing, more mindful of the TV than the IV in his arm. Beside him sat his father, Lenny, the Colts' Hall of Famer. Finally, things appeared to be looking up. Baltimore led Oakland by seven ... 10 ... 13 points. As the Ravens neared victory, Les looked more alert. Forgotten, for a moment, was his nine-year struggle with a chronic illness. Les sipped juice, ate mashed potatoes, urged the team on. Then, the Ravens won. "Man, we're going to the Super Bowl!"
