I happened on this article and thought it might be of interest for those with RA who might be considering TNFa blocker treatment.

From arthritis-research.com

Risk of incident or recurrent malignanci...register RABBIT
There's a link to a pdf available too.

Knowledge is power!

Hey, you're welcome Wendy!

On a similar note regarding relative risks in RA, here's one from www3.interscience.wiley.com, using data from the Swedish Biologics Register.

published online: 29 Oct 2009
Risk in RA patients treated w/anti-TNFa therapies - Does the risk change with time?

I can't access the full article tho. ohwell

Happy reading!

Thanks Mig and Wendy. I guess it doesn't apply to me except for the many many drugs I have already taken because I won't be taking any more. I do think about all of the years of stuff I have put in my body trying to halt these diseases. The steroids for so long have my intestines so thing that they tear and I have lost a lot of blood recently. I am down 3 units. I know now that I would ask a lot more questions about what I was taking except that the high dose steroids saved my life more than once.

Thanks for sharing.
