Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 week ago):
After third infusion of Remicade I developed pneumonia requiring hospitalization. An 8 day stay with anti-biotic treatments. I developed oral candida albicans where lozenges (200) failed to cure. Just switched to liquid solution w/I last 2 days. Doctors report I have developed pulmonary fibrosis. We are just now addressing that symptom/result. I had one more infusion 6 weeks after entering the hospital, and had negative symptoms. Doctor advises to stop all Remicade treatments. O2 intake is now at 90%, where as last year it would normally be 95%+ w/o exertion.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
there appears to be some confusion as to whether these drugs may interact producing negative results.
