Research study

Caitlyn recieved a letter today asking her to participate in a research study. This is the study. She wants to do it but it says you cannot be on biologics and I think Entyvio even though different from remicade is still considered a biologic?

MLP,
That is what I thought but the study people kept saying she can still participate. I am going to call them tomorrow and double check again.
