I was wondering if you could share some insight and info relative to the use of Depo-Testoserone IM with patients with long term UC that are currently receiving Remicade IV Tx. Are there risks relative to the 'activating' characteristics of Testosterone that would render it's use contraindicated or potentially suspect relative to facilitating colon cancer or at least, flare-up of UC Symptoms?
Thanks,
