Good morning!  I saw on the news that a new injection called Cimzia was approved.  I was wondering if anyone has tried it (maybe in a trial) and how you did.  I'm on Remicade.  I don't understand the difference between Remicade, Humira, and Cimzia.....  eyes Julie

Hi Julie,

There was a thread about it yesterday and a few thoughts/responses. Really I was hoping to hear from the person on the forum who was in the trial. I remember her (I think a woman) talking about it.
--39 year old female, dx as UC in '04 (1st symptoms in '03), switched to Crohn's in '05, 1 fistula, crohn's colitis, limited to large intestine
--rejected (reaction/didn't work): Asacol, AZA, 6-MP, MTX, Remicade, Humira, prednisone
--stuck on methylprednisolone, tried Prochymal in Phase III study (can't wait til it's approved!)
--started Tysabri 3/21/08
--single mom to 10-year-old girl
