Let’s Talk Biosimilars Hi UC’ers, There has been several messages in 2016 with questions about biosimilars, and what the implications are/will be for UC’ers who might be interested, or prescribed these “relatively” new medications. So, what are biosimilars…maybe we should start there. Here is what wikipedia has to say for biosimilars: A biosimilar (also known […]
science and research into the ulcerative colitis, or gastrointestinal world.
Some news and… It’s pretty incredible! The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) who has lots of money in their annual budget, will be sending a check to the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) for $2,500,000. And, what’s better than that (In my opinion), is that this money is going to be used to: […]
Good Morning & Evening if you are doing that:)) In the ongoing effort to keep us all informed about colitis related topics, and since so many have a personal interest in diet (OK, not everyone, but quite a few), below are the Study Titles, as well as their associated links so you can read the […]
Here are some PubMed stories I am interested in and have been following. Maybe you will be interested in some of the topics too: Dietary Supplement Therapies for Inflammatory Bowel Disease: Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis Abstract: Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) including ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease are chronic relapsing and remitting chronic diseases for […]
Here’s a brief update of a select few stories/research documents that have been published recently. As you’ll see below, the topics vary quite a bit, but are all centered around Inflammatory Bowel Disease and specifically Ulcerative Colitis which is what we/I are/am most interested in right? :)
***(Below is an email I received over the weekend, this kind doctor was my contact several years ago when I was sending in my poop samples via airmail for part of the study, super pumped that he sent this update, and I hope some of you find it interesting and informative as well. – Adam […]
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. The two other biologics which were compared in this study are adalimumab and golimumab (or you […]
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.
Bleeding, kissing the toilet seat with your gluteus maxer for hours on end, running to the pharmacy to fill that latest prescription, and filling up on toilet paper is all a part of living with UC. We can probably all agree on that. Even if you don’t have UC but made it to this […]
Hey UC’ers, Big thanks to Berklia for sending over the email below which contains several links to nearly the whole program for those of you who could not attend. Thank you so much Berklia for the colitis related information. It is very much appreciated especially since so many people just don’t have the opportunity to […]
