Ampio Pharmaceuticals (AMPE)
New anti-inflammatory drug to possibly hit market in 2013
Now this something I can get excited about! I am not to keen on the idea of having to take medications such as Enbrel or Humira because of the side effects, cost and uncertainty of its effectiveness. I know a lot of people take these meds with great success but there are a lot of people who tried them with no such luck.
After my latest flare I started back on my diclofenac (NSAID) and right away my ulcerative colitis kicked in with a vengence. Its been a long time since I have taken the anti-inflammatory that I never even thought about it causing so many problems.
I’m excited to hear there might be a new drug out that will help me with my inflammation, that doesn’t have the side effects. It does sound promising but will have to reserve my final judgement to the release of the phase 3 trials report.
