The official cure is not found yet I know.
But since there is a lot of research being done (seemingly), I just wondered if anyone know if there are any recent findings/conclusions bringing us closer to solving the mystery of UC?

Not that I know of. Yesterday I went for my Remi infusion, and as I sat in the chair and watched all of the other folks around me being infused with other meds...I realized that there are so many dibilatating illnesses out there that people are battling and it makes me wonder just how many studies etc are going on to find cures for them too. I always feel a bit thankful because my bag of Remi takes about an hour to infuse and some of them have huge or multiple bags to infuse. I can't imagine. Yow, sorry for rambling!
