First infusion was like liquid gold and worked...for a short time. We are now on our 5th, and think we have turned a corner. As the 4th wore off, my daughter flared a -new, and now the infusion stopped it. We are at about the 3 month mark, and get 10 mg per kilo every 8 weeks. Back to 2-3 BM's, little /no blood and no pain. Also on other drugs, see tag lines.
So far so good, as nothing else really stopped the nastiness of this disease.
