Here is what I know is:

http://www.simponi.com/simponi/index.html

Simponi FDA approved for adults with moderate-to-severe rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, and ankylosing spondylitis. I believe Canada approved it as well.

Once a month injection - known as the Simponi SmartJect.

Scotty, here is question for you, how much does Remicade and/or Enbrel cost up in Ontario under OHIP plans? hard to get, easy to get?

I was just prescribed Simponi today and hopefully it will work as it comes strictly from human stem cells and not mouse ones according to my doc. I developed resistance to Humira after only three months of use so now I'm trying Simponi along with a no starch diet and I hope this will help.

I am on Simponi and my body loves it. It doesn't take away all the pain but it definitely helps decrease my pain and it has improved my fatigue and sleep. I didn't do well on the biologics made from non-human.
