Study affirms effectiveness of medication for juvenile rheumatoid arthritis
Date:5/8/2008

9 medically important infections over the course of the long-term trial, for an overall exposure-adjusted rate of 0.03 MIIs per patient year. This rate did not increase with long-term exposure to etanercept.

  • The most common adverse event was a flare of JRA. There were no reported cases of tuberculosis, which has been linked to anti-TNF therapy, or lupus; no malignancies or lymphomas; no nervous system disorders; and no deaths.

  • Among patients who received 8 years worth of weekly etanercept treatment, 100 percent achieved an ACR Pedi 70 response, indicating 70 percent improvement in joint symptoms from baseline. Over the course of the study, only 7 patients withdrew due to the therapys lack of effectiveness on disease activity.

    Continuous treatment with etanercept resulted in truly important, often profound, sustained improvement in all aspects of this disease including clinically important signs and symptoms of JRA, improvements in functional ability and decreased pain for up to 8 years, notes study group spokesperson Dr. Daniel J. Lovell. Demonstrating long-term safety comparable to studies of patients across a variety of rheumatic disorders, this study supports the potential of etanercept therapy to give children with JRA the promise of a better quality of life as adults.
