Philadelphia Freedom was the song playing in my mind as I was walking through the Philly Zoo for the National Psoriasis Foundation . What a great way to enjoy the Zoo and help fund research that may one day produce a cure. After twenty four years of having psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis it’s so rewarding to see people come out and walk for our cause.
Janssen Pharmaceuticals raised the most money for this event. Team Janssen has always been there to support the psoriasis community. I appreciate their hard work and dedication to our disease state. This company is so generous and pso compassionate about the people of the psoriasis community.
I remember reading an article in the psoriasis Advance Bulletin. The article was discussing new products in the pipeline. Janssen was conducting a trial on their new medication (at the time) Stelara . The medication was a biological medication that blocks interlukin 12 & 23. Research showed that these were involved with the inflammation that causes the autoimmune system to overreact and produce skin cells 10 times faster then normal. And that’s the visual effects of the disease. The medication also prevents further damage to the joints and organs by stopping the inflammation that’s going on in the body. I’m so grateful to Janssen and their employees because Stelara improved my quality of life for 5 years. I was totally covered and pso miserable. Everything hurt and there was no relief from anything I was trying at the time, until Stelara.
Stelara did the trick for me as you can see from the pictures. This disease is nasty.
Janssen ( Johnson & Johnson ) also has a app for your phone to donate a picture. From now until the end of the year they will donate one dollar for every photo submitted up to $25,000.00. Www.donateaphoto.com everyday and take part in funding research.
Janssen is also in the process if developing a new Biological medication. The medical name for the drug is Guselkumab . I attached an article that explains the new drug, just click on the highlighted medical name. Janssen also has a website designed for patients. It’s called Are You Serious.
I applaud Team Janssen for their continuous effort to improve patients quality of life.
