In two clinical studies, more than half of the patients who took HUMIRA had significant symptom relief, versus about 1 out of 3 who took placebo. In the same studies, 36% and 21% of patients who took HUMIRA achieved remission, versus 12% and 7% who took placebo. Results were at four weeks.
That was from the Humira website. That was just data from trials at four weeks & we all know it takes more than FOUR weeks to achieve remission usually. Especially with biologics! My Rhuemie & GI, as well as the commercials, say to look or results by 12 weeks.
