Perianal treatment with direct injections biologics

Just ran across two articles giving the results of small pilot studies where biologics were injected directly into the area of fistulas. One study they used remicade and the other humira. Both were very small - less than 20 people. But the results were very good for a high percentage of the participants.

I've linked both articles for anyone interested in this information. I'm also checking to see if they're posted in research and will add them there if needed.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22810472

And here's a full text overview article published in 2011 that gives an overview of Perianal disease and treatment and references some experimental/possible future treatments.

all the best
