    I would submit myself for clinical testing of xeljanz for my MPB in a heartbeat. Hell, I'd spend 8 months AT THE LAB IN A TESTING CHAMBER NAKED if that's what it took. If it worked, or has any positive effect, I'd consider it a worthy use of my time lol

    I really hope this great find develops into something we can work with really soon.

    I wonder if we could collectively raise funds to pay for a bunch of pills and see if we could get it into a topical form used 1-3 times a week... would cost far less this way and reduce possibility of side effects.

    Sadly, I am pretty sure we will simply have to play the waiting game. But topical therapy has far less risk involved generally.

    I'd really like to try it, but the topical version (crush some tabs into solution and dermaroll it in)?

    Because oral version has far too many serious side effects, check it out:
    http://www.xeljanz.com/safety-side-effects#cancer

    Lemme give you some hints:
    "XELJANZ may increase your risk of certain cancers by changing the way your immune system works. Lymphoma and other cancers, including skin cancers, have happened in patients taking XELJANZ.
    Some people taking XELJANZ get tears in their stomach or intestine. This happens most often in people who also take nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), corticosteroids, or methotrexate.
    XELJANZ may cause serious side effects, including hepatitis B or C activation infection

    This is some dangerous stuff, but I'd be willing to try out the topical solution

    PS.

    ...and $25 000 PER YEAR is just outrageously expensive, I bet most of people would rather do a top class HT than take this product.

    It is given orally....all these types of Biologic DMARDs have serious side effects that preclude use for AA. Does it work for AA? Who knows.
