ent in haemoglobin levels. According to both studies, patients treated with Actemra plus DMARDs experienced greater improvements in quality of life and function measures, including fatigue and physical and mental functions compared to placebo plus DMARDs.

Actemra generally well tolerated in both TOWARD and OPTION

Actemra was generally well tolerated in both studies. The most common adverse events reported more frequently in the Actemra arm were upper respiratory tract infections, headache, nasopharyngitis and hypertension. As with other disease modifying anti-rheumatic drugs, serious infections have been reported in some patients treated with Actemra.

About Actemra

Actemra is the first humanised interleukin-6 (IL-6) receptor inhibiting monoclonal antibody and represents a novel mechanism of action to treat RA, a disease with a high unmet medical need. The overall safety profile observed in the global studies of Actemra is consistent and Actemra is generally well tolerated.

About rheumatoid arthritis
