Thanks. The doc is a fan of the top down approach -- more powerful but also more toxic meds - and it shows. He has been promoting versions of this presentation for a number of years, now. Some interesting information but doesn't tell the whole story - for instance, fatal and irreversible bone marrow suppression due to treatment with meds like 6mp.
Am not dazzled by the metrics (only one in ten thousand!) and my fears are not allayed. Fewer than two in one thousand people in the US get Crohn's and yet we have Crohn's in my family so do we feel lucky enough to roll the dice and try 6mp? Not really.
Have had first-hand experiences with this doc and am not a fan.
