My 11 yr old son is in the current pediatric clinical trial of Humira. I am aware of some kids with CD who have been increased to weekly dosing when every other week dosing has failed to control their severe disease. The level of med used varies according to the child's weight but some are in the adult category and are taking 40 mg weekly.
The clinical trial protocol we are under calls for increasing to weekly dosing if there is a failure to respond or if there is a flare. My son is randomized to either 20 mg or 40 mg dosing so if he were to be increased to weekly then he might be at 40 mg weekly.
Follow your dreams.
