I know remicade is used for rhumetoid arthritis and AS (I think thats right?)
Ive also heard a very few cases being used for really bad exzema (sp?) but not sure if that was just a side effect of another disease.
methotrexate is a form of chemo used to treat rhumetoid arthritis as well ans some cancers , but on a much larger dose.
these are my 2 drugs, so thats all I know
I'm not real sure on this one actually. But thats an interesting point. It seems the drugs get approved for other illnesses before crohns, does that mean its getting the funding needed from other diseases and illnesses?
