Good information, RJ. I think a lot of the drugs we use have been linked to cancer (tnf-inhibitors in addition to mtx). There's always been the question, though, of whether it is actually the drug causing the cancers, or we're a high risk population for cancers to begin with (particularly lymphoma). I have heard that a lot of chemotherapy drugs can cause leukemia, and other similar blood cancers (scary stuff). I'm wondering, though, if mtx can cause cancers at the low doses we use for AI disease?
