abstract here

  • ulcerative colitis
  • fever and pain in right buttock
  • clinical and MRI evidence of sacroiliitis
  • leukocytapheresis resolved her problem
  • Leukocyte (White Blood Cell) – Derived Cytokinines (inflammatory chemicals) are thought key to flares of Ulcerative Colitis – Main articles seem to come from Japan¬† – as discussed here

Comment – OK, doesn’t look like this is available here so what is the point?¬† One of the thing that is most depressing is the thought that nothing will ever change. What is ignored in that, is rescue factors – there is something coming down the pipeline that no one has ever even considered that someday might make a difference.. There is hope..
