Clinical trials

After much hair pulling and gnashing of teeth I was finally able to get a hold of the people who actually run the study I want to be in. Here we are a little over a week and 8 phone calls and I’m officially in 🙂

Due to the fact that they need to see me ASAP in San Antonio I have to miss 3 days of school in my last 3 weeks of high school, this is unfortunate but necessary. My teachers have all cleared me to go so it’s all good. They will be testing my CCP and some other blood levels in an attempt to  officialize my diagnosis with blood work. After that they are going to test my blood over the next 3 years to track how my body reacts to my MTX and a new Ei Lilly drug that is a baff inhibitor that is injected. The doctor in charge is really excited about having an 18 year old in the study because I’m the absolute youngest possible and the only one under 25. In all seriousness this man really fought to get me into this study and I’m very excited that he’s giving me a chance to help find a cure and treatment for RA 🙂
