There are studies being done now for kids. The dose is being adjusted for Enbrel. Why not surf over to the immunex site and look around for answers about Enbrel.
: Dear Chay-Chay,
: Unfortunately I can tell you from experience that you are never too young to have to deal with RA. My four year old son was diagnosed with JRA (Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis) when he was only 20 months old. Not only does he have everything that adults go through but the disease is and will continue to interfere with his development. I am searching for information on Embrel because his Drs want to try it for him, we have tried many meds and have not yet gotten it under control. If anyone has any information that may be helpful please e-mail it to me. As for you Chay-Chay all I can say is that I have found God to be a great strength in our battle and we will win with his help. God bless you and good luck.
