Quincy, I was on Vancocin for 10 days. I was checked for C difficile 4 times during the last study. The last time was at the end of the study and a few weeks before I started Remicade in August of 2006. My GI believes I got it after a round of antibiotics last June for a sore throat.
Eric, Abatacept is similar to Remicade in that they are both biologics and administer by infusion but they are different in the way they work on the immune system. Remicade is a TNF blocker and Abatacept works on the T-Cells.
