Rapid and Long-term Clinical Responses Observed in Rheumatoid Arthritis Patients Taking Cimzia® (certolizumab pegol), According to Data Being Highlighted During ACR Meeting
Date:11/5/2010

ab pegol, may increase the risk of reactivation of hepatitis B virus (HBV) in patients who are chronic carriers of this virus. Some cases have been fatal.  Evaluate patients at risk for HBV infection for prior evidence of HBV infection before initiating certolizumab pegol therapy.  Exercise caution in prescribing certolizumab pegol for patients identified as carriers of HBV, with careful evaluation and monitoring prior to and during treatment.  In patients who develop HBV reactivation, discontinue certolizumab pegol and initiate effective anti-viral therapy with appropriate supportive treatment.

Neurologic ReactionsUse of TNF blockers, including CIMZIA, has been associated with rare cases of new onset or exacerbation of clinical symptoms and/or radiographic evidence of central nervous system demyelinating disease, including multiple sclerosis, and with peripheral demyelinating disease, including Guillain-Barre syndrome. Rare cases of neurological disorders, including seizure disorder, optic neuritis, and peripheral neuropathy have been reported in patients treated with CIMZIA. Exercise caution in considering the use of CIMZIA in patients with these disorders.

Hematologic ReactionsRare reports of pancytopenia, including aplastic anemia, have been reported with TNF blockers.  Medically significant cytopenia (e.g., leukopenia, pancytopenia, thrombocytopenia) has been infrequently reported with certolizumab pegol.  Advise all patients to seek immediate medical attention if they develop signs and symptoms suggestive of blood dyscrasias or infection (e.g., persistent fever, bruising, bleeding, pallor) while on certolizumab pegol.  Consider discontinuation of certolizumab pegol therapy in patients with confirmed significant hematologic abnormalities.

Drug InteractionsAn increased risk of serious infections has been seen in clinical trials of other TNF blocking agents used in combination with anakinra or abatacept.
