Xeljanz? Other JAK inhibitors?

Anyone on Xeljanz here? Is it effective for Crohn's as well? Just curious as it is not yet an option for me in my country.

Anyone in a medical trial with JAK inhibitors? I was told they seem to be very effective (doctor who performs these medical trials).

I came across someone from the US who takes Xeljanz for her Rheumatoid Arthritis, she also has Crohn's and it helps very well with both. Just to give you an update on that, so new medication is on it's way being released for Crohn's, hopefully very soon, fingers crossed.
