I thought this was very interesting. I posted it on the other board but wanted to share it here too.

Here's a quote and a link to the whole article is below.

"Trial results of 112 children show after just three months of treatment with tocizilumab nearly three-quarters had a 70 per cent improvement in their condition, compared with eight per cent taking a placebo, or dummy drug. After a year two-thirds of children had a 90 per cent improvement in their symptoms."
