I am not in the study but I had to do some research recently on clinical studies. you can find out who is coordinating the study by doing this:
go to www.clinicaltrials.gov
do a search for ulcerative colitis and humira
you'll find some studies, and scan those pages for the contact info. Often there is a direct email address to the study coordinator.
you can also check eligibility guidelines right there to see if you qualify.
just check to see if they are recruiting patients or not. likely for a phase 3 study like humira, you would have needed to get involved earlier, but definitely worth checking out. good luck.

by the way, even if you search for "humira," the website will bring it up as the generic name, which I think is adalimumab (or something). but it's the same thing
