REMICADE(R) SONIC Trial Show Sustained Efficacy Compared With Azathioprine

http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/152322.php

New long-term findings from the Phase 3b study of patients with moderately to severely active Crohn's disease having inadequate response to conventional therapies, but naive to immunomodulators and biologic therapy, were presented at Digestive Disease Week today. Data from the SONIC study showed that a greater proportion of patients receiving REMICADE (infliximab) maintained steroid-free remission at one year, compared with patients receiving azathioprine alone.

My Support Groups:
Yep - I think they are finding that going to biologics first can really give a person a good chance at maintaining remission much longer than the bottom up approach. Let's hope it works for you Mazen!!!
