New Anti-TNF Drugs

Posted , 6 users are following.

I have read on several message boards lately that there could be two new ant-tnf drugs coming to the market soon. Would that make the total 5? If so then does anyone know when these will be available to the UK market?

    I'm interested to hear the responses too. My consultant is talking about changing me to them.

    I don't know what is out there, but there are some promising trials for secukinumab, as I am currently not responding to adalimubab (Humira) - lung function is decreasing weekly, constant pain across the chest from the moment I wake until I sleep. Unfortunately I don't think anyone can now get on these trials. Certainly the organisation responsible does not respond to any email queries.

    I just started on Cimzia, almost six weeks ago. It seems to be working really well so far. After being largely housebound (and mostly bedridden) for several months after I had to stop taking all NSAIDs and Prednisone because of NAFLD, I am now out and about a lot, including some long rides on my electric-assist pedal wheelchair/trike.
