Three Studies Suggest Abbott's Humira (adalimumab) May Improve Work,Productivity in Patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis

ihood of stopping work over 24 months for RA patients on HUMIRA versus those on a DMARD. Multivariate regression analyses controlled for the baseline characteristic differences between the two populations while comparing the outcomes. Over the two-year period, patients working at the time of study enrollment in the HUMIRA group worked more than seven months longer and were 36 percent less likely to stop working than the patients in the DMARD registry.

"Rheumatoid arthritis can have a profound impact on the lives of patients. Within three years of diagnosis some people who develop the condition have to give up full-time employment," said Rebecca Hoffman, M.D., divisional vice president, Immunology Development, Abbott. "The results of the studies suggest the benefit of HUMIRA combined with MTX extends beyond the clinical scope."

HUMIRA is approved to treat adult patients with moderately to severely active rheumatoid arthritis. More than 190,000 patients worldwide are currently being treated with HUMIRA.

About Rheumatoid Arthritis

Unlike osteoarthritis, the most common form of arthritis, RA is an autoimmune disease where joints are inflamed, which may lead to damage of the joints' interior and the surrounding bone. The joints most commonly affected during the beginning of the disease are the smaller joints of the fingers, feet and wrists. The elbows, knees, ankles and hips can be affected, but less often. Although there is no cure for RA, people continue to seek treatments that not only alleviate the pain and inflammation but also slow disease progression, thereby inhibiting the joint damage that can hinder patients from performing daily activities.
