I read about this on the CCFA website last night- they (the FDA) has approved the drug, but with caution. I guess it's similar to all the other TNF blockers, same potentially deadly side effects.

Yes, I saw something about the side effects (I think on the CCFA site) and how they're using extreme caution with this one - even more so than Remi and Humira. Kind of scary!
