Results With HUMIRA

With HUMIRA, remission is possible for ulcerative colitis
Approximately 2x more likely to achieve ulcerative colitis remission on HUMIRA at 8 weeks

In one clinical study, 18.5% of patients with moderate to severe ulcerative colitis (UC) achieved remission as early as 8 weeks versus 9.2% on placebo. In a second study, 16.5% of patients achieved remission on HUMIRA at 8 weeks versus 9.3% on placebo. Individual results may vary.

One clinical trial showed that 17.3% of HUMIRA for UC patients achieved and maintained remission at 52 weeks

A controlled study of 494 patients included those who were new to a biologic as well as those who had taken a biologic treatment in the past. At week 52, 17.3% were in remission with HUMIRA compared to 8.5% taking placebo.  Individual results may vary.

A HUMIRA Testimonial from Dr. Remo Panaccione: “linical remission is a key goal. For my moderate to severe UC patients I look for treatment that is proven to achieve that goal rapidly.”

Common side effects with HUMIRA include:

  • injection site reactions: redness, rash, swelling, itching, or bruising. These symptoms usually will go away within a few days. Call your doctor right away if you have pain, redness or swelling around the injection site that does not go away within a few days or gets worse
  • upper respiratory infections (including sinus infections)
  • headaches
  • rash

Having my symptoms under control meant I didn’t have to worry about where the nearest restroom was whenever I went out.
