I stay away from studies for the opposite reason. I figure I'd get the investigation drug and it would work like a miracle for me, then when the study was over I wouldn't be able to get it any more. That's what happens in most studies - when the term of the study is over, you can't get the drug because the FDA hasn't approved it or your insurance won't cover or it just isn't available for regular use yet.
I'm really afraid of my reaction if that happened to me. I don't know whether I'd want to hurt myself or someone else.
Left-sided UC diagnosed 2001. Taking Colazal and Imuran, Remicade infusions and moving into remission. Finally off steroids after four years!
Now in remission for almost two years. Remicade has been my wonder drug.
