JCVirus came back as positive, let's hope that as this drug becomes more prevalent in treatment nothing comes out regarding vedo being like its sister natalizumab with the drug passing blood-brain barrier. No PML please
Appointment with Gastro tomorrow morning, BMS seem to be getting better but I won't really know for sure until I pull the steroid. I imagine he's going to try to kill Uceris, I've been on it for much longer than 8 weeks on and off over the course of the past few months, I'll probably counter with negotiating taking it every other day as I've been doing so for the past week with no serious issue, maybe every third day. Also worth noting, I am taking VSL3 DS, usually two packets a day, sometimes one.
So 6 weeks seems to be the sweet spot with this? Please correct me if I'm wrong, I'm the first patient on entyvio in my GI's office and I'm very seriously concerned that he's expecting response sometime in the loading phase, per entyvio's own webpage after 6 weeks 47% achieved response on the drug vs 26% taking placebo. With Imuran the sweet spot seemed to be 6-8 weeks before beginning to notice difference, can I expect the same in terms of length with vedo or longer? Will continue to update! Cheers!
Imuran & Asacol has kept me in remission up until they pulled Asacol off the market a year or so ago. Have been clawing tooth and nail to get back into remission.
