Still Stable on Fumaric Acid Ester
from Erin

Backstory:  Fumaric Acid Esters her Miracle

Hi Ed:  Just a quick note to let you know that I continue to thrive on this treatment and I can't believe it has been 3 years since I started on it.  I continue to stay on a low dose: 1 and 1/2 tablets a day.  I have heard from others who are doing well and my 87 year old doctor continues to do well too.  I hope this finds you well, best regards,  -Erin


Ed’s Response:  Good to hear from you, Erin, and good to hear your FAE therapy is holding!  I guess FAE is still NOT ON the FDA’s approved-for-psoriasis-treatment list.  Dave W.’s assessment of the drug probably still holds — the comparability of FAE and methotrexate safety profiles may suggest FAE’s profitability prospects in the U.S. do not warrant the effort to get it approved.

Please stay in touch.  -Ed
