Hey there,

I've had Crohn's for 20 years and have been lucky in the sense that I had a very long remission on Imuran, and when that stopped working, Humira stepped in to get me back in remission. It seems like advances are being made that will continue to promise new treatment options, and hopefully ones that aren't as risky. It must have been so horrible for IBD folks when there was no treatment at all, not even prednisone. Hopefully down the road we will have a true cure for these terrible diseases. Much thanks to everyone who toils away on the research that will get us there.
