My daughter may still have to resort to Remicade at some point if things don't work out with her current treatment. I've been trying to gather some information through here mostly. I'm familiar with the problem of building up anti-bodies that will result in having to terminate use. It seems from what I've read, most only get about 1-2 yrs. before this starts to happen.
Is there anyone who's had longterm success with Remicade? Is my understanding typical, or is it possible to get years of benefit from this drug?
My daughter was diagnosed Feb. 19/07, (13 yrs. old at time of diagnosis), with Crohn's of the Terminal Illium. Has used Prednisone and Pentasa. Started Imuran (02/09), had an abdominal abscess (12/08). 2cm of Stricture.
