I saw my GI today and it went well...I gave him my BM , diet and pain diary and he said that my crohn's is still pretty active and that my crp is at 24 ( it was 17 last month).he ask me what I wanted to do and I said that I have one week left on my entocort so I want to finnish that and then just wait a few week and see what happen...I explain to him that since saturday i've been feeling alot better
he wasn't happy about it but said ok....so I meet him on nov 1 and he gave me a consent form to fill out because he wants me to put me in a research program ( he's the study dr also ) it's called abatacept ...it for RA and they are researching if it can work on crohn's disease.... he said it's similar to Humira
 
 
what do u guys think?
 
does anybody know about abatacept?

Hi gachrons,

I don't have RA ....I think they want to try it because it worked for ppl who has RA....I'm really considering trying the abatacept...
