Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • Anyone experence colon cancer on enbrel?
    I used Enbrel for about 9 years and developed colon cancer. There is no family history and the particular DNA of the cancer was highly unusual for colon cancer. Has anyone else experienced colon cancer after long term Enbrel use?
  • I am currently taking stelara. have had several cbc blood work done. can i have syphilis and still be able to take this drug
    I don't think I have any symptoms for syphilis, but just found out my partner has it and curious if all the testing with blood I've had to do before taking stelara and other drugs could it be possible that i have it...recently had a CBC (within the past week) and all tests were good...didn't find anything.
  • Is there anyone who has information or experience with refractory multiple myeloma and the development of a second primary cancer in the colon (colon cancer)
    Diagnosed May 2009 with Stage IV, IGg Kappa Multiple Myeloma. Presented with pneumonia, 2 rib fractures, anemia, elevated serum m-protein, over 100 bone lesions, 78% plasma cells in bone marrow. No organ involvement. Chromosomal mutations, deletions, and transposition. Evaluated as low risk. 52 X-Y. After Revlamid-Dexamethazone induction therapy, Underwent Autogus Stem Cell Transplant involving Cytoxian based mobilization, High Dose Melphlain Chemotherapy. Had good response and well tolerated. Residual disease evident by residual ledic lesions and plasma cell involvement at 5%. Then consolidation therapy in the form of VDT-Pace, off protocall, that resulted in complete profound remission. After which began maintenance therapy of revlimid, valcade, dex. Time to disease progression of 30 months. Refractory to RVD maintenance. Began 3 cycles VDT-Pace plus Melphalan. Thus contributing to current good partial remission of 3 months. Now under new maintenance of pomalyst, dex,



    NOW, PET scan and follow-up colonscopy has confirmed a Second Primary Cancer discovered in the sigmoid colon as COLON CANCER. (super rare manifestation)



    Currently, under the care of one of the top in the field of Multiple Myeloma. And had, until now considered myself rather educated on this condition..... Now, I am searching for others, i.e. patients, caregivers or professionals willing to shed light on this otherwise unknown journey of which I am about to embark. Any onsite or direction would be greatly appreciates.... I guess I am #140 of 55,600 studied MM patients!!



    Thanks for your information and encouragement!!

  • Stelara worsened existing mild endometriosis to severe endometriosis
    My rheumatologist switched my biologic psoriatic arthritis medicine from Humira to Stelara 9 months ago. My other choice was to add methotrexate to Humira, which I have taken before and didn't want to do because of the fatigue and possible recurrence of elevated liver enzymes. Within a month I had heavy uterine bleeding 3 times within one month. As a pharmacist I was concerned about this strange side effect and my gynecologist agreed with my concerns that I may have migrated endometriosis as well as worsening symptoms of uterine endometriosis originally diagnosed in 2000. I've had psoriasis since childhood beginning in the mid 1970s. Arthritis was diagnosed shortly after I completed endometriosis treatment in in 2001. I have reported the adverse event to Abbvie and encourage anyone else to do so. For those of us in this unfortunate group, the company needs to study WHY Stelara feeds endometriosis (does it elevate estrogen levels?) and why it causes a premenopausal woman to have vaginal bleeding/period and/or bleeding at migration sites within 3 days of an injection. I can only imagine the disastrous consequences for any woman on Stelara who has estrogen receptor positive breast cancer history in her family. This side effect is on par as being as serious as those seen with Thalidomide.
