My journal of my battle with Crohns disease. I have had Crohn's diagnosed since September 2007. In that time I've been through two surgeries, two colonoscopies, and tons of good and bad times. I want to share my experiences with this disorder and hope to hear some feedback from time to time.

83% of Patients Remain in Remission After Three Years

Tuesday, March 9, 2010
I ran across an article a few days ago that talked about Crohn's Disease patients and the drug Adalimumab. Most of us know Adalimumab by another name, Humira. It mentioned that out of the 145 patients at the beginning of the study, 120 were still in remission 3 years later.

This is pretty cool. I know a lot of the people I talk to online twitter are taking Humira. I would love to know what it does for you. My GI wants to wait and keep Humira as a sort of ace in the hole if things get more severe.
