New Drug Promising Against Rheumatoid Arthritis
Date:6/29/2009

tal for Joint Diseases, New York City, said that "for those patients who have failed or had an inadequate response to etanercept, infliximab, adalimumab or abatacept, golimumab might be a good option."

The study, which was funded by drug makers Centocor, Inc. and Schering- Plough, appears online June 29 inThe Lancet.

Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammatory disease that affects about 1.3 million people in the United States. TNF-a inhibitors are widely used to treat the disease, but 30 to 50 percent of patients treated with these drugs are intolerant or have an inadequate response to the drugs. Prior to this study, no controlled trials had examined whether patients who don't respond to one TNF-a inhibitor might respond to another.
