Greetings, I hope this email finds you well. My name is Samir Kakodkar, MD, and I am currently a gastroenterology fellow in Illinois. I am contacting you because a few years ago you had expressed interest in updates regarding the research I was doing on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet when I was at Rush University […]
science and research into the ulcerative colitis, or gastrointestinal world.
As the title says, there is a new study that was published and available for everyone to read that gives some reasons for why Remicade (aka Infliximab) is better than the other biologic medications available to treat ulcerative colitis.

Here is a link to some new research regarding stem cell therapy and Inflammatory Bowel Disease and another recent medical breakthrough that may soon help some UC patients
Current Details regarding rates of remission from using Remicade and/or Humira (anti-TNF medications) to treat UC, as well as adverse side effects rates, and what to expect when changing from one medication to the other.
Recently there was some research published to PubMed that I think will help clear up many questions UC’ers and family members have with regards to existing and future biologic medications we can expect to hear about.
Details about how our gut microbiome is extremely important in our individual health, along with some ideas about what life events can potentially change future results and health and medical conditions with mention of inflammatory bowel disease among other diseases and disorders.
