Yeah, I thought that too. Maybe it was just that one study, or maybe it's just that only those of us who have a lot of trouble come here.
Of course, I suppose you could say I went into remission after a single attack. The thing is, that single attack lasted from 2001 until 2006.
Moderate to severe left-sided UC (21 cm) diagnosed 2001.
Intolerant to Asacol and rectal mesalamine preparations.
On Prednisone then Entocort 2001-2006 with only short periods off.
Current meds are Colazal,
Azathioprine Remicade, Nature's Way Primadophilus Reuteri.
In remission since April, 2006. Remicade has been my wonder drug.
