Damo...you are rude and ignorant. And with are JAX inhibitors, hmm??? Please send us some more YouTube links. I've never ever ever said what you justsaid. Bye bye now.
David, that isn't at all what I was talking about.
Mods, where are you here? Should be locked. Oh right, only certain members are targeted here with banning and locked threads.
Not sure what the hostility is about
but what I mentioned is directly what you were talking about
. I said the increased risk would likely apply to both RA and UC patients taking Xeljanz, as there is no physiologic reason to think otherwise. You said that was incorrect. I cited a very detailed study showing that Xeljanz has a greater risk of malignancies and major cardiovascular adverse events compared to TNF inhibitors, which themselves have a greater risk than placebo. So I'm not sure where the confusion is as it's pretty straightforward.
And as I mentioned numerous times, this doesn't mean no one should take Xeljanz. Obviously for some the benefits outweigh the costs.
