Well, there is one more reason to celebrate today!  The FDA has finally approved Tysabri as a treatment option for Crohn's patients (who have not responded to any other available drug)!

here is the news bit on from yahoo. you'll notice it was approved, then pulled and now approved again with a gnarly label. i wont be touching this stuff. imho it ranks up there with thalidomide, a known teratogen.
