Recent review has shown that patients who developed those rare cancers were those who were on Remicade and immunosuppressants (Imuran, 6-MP) together. My doc has taken his Remicade patients off the immunosuppressants. Basically, he doesn't start Remi until the immunosuppressants have failed, so any minimal benefit from them isn't going to be missed much.
