Biologic disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (bDMARDs) have revolutionised treatment and outcomes for rheumatoid arthritis (RA). The expanding repertoire allows the option of switching bDMARD if current treatment is not effective. For some patients, even after switching, disease control remains elusive. This analysis aims to quantify the frequency of, and identify factors associated with, bDMARD refractory disease.

To evaluate adherence to newly initiated biologic disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (bDMARDs) in effectively treated patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
To estimate total costs among patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) who persisted on or switched from newly initiated biologic therapy.
Multiple studies have observed seemingly unfavorable changes in lipid profiles associated with IL6 receptor antagonists (IL-6R) and some other rheumatoid arthritis (RA) therapies. The real-world cardi...
To examine cross-sectional and longitudinal relationships between fibromyalgia (FM) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA) disease activity.
To establish whether the decision to stop, continue or switch TNF inhibitor (TNFi) therapy to a biologic drug with an alternative mode of action following a serious infection (SI) impacts upon the ris...
That anti-TNF therapy and rituximab therapy are equally effective in treating patients with rheumatoid arthritis who meet the eligibility criteria for biologic therapy in the British Socie...
Examine the effectiveness and safety of the abatacept administration in biologic-naïve rheumatoid arthritis patients who have moderate disease activity despite treatments with conventiona...
Methotrexate (MTX) is the first-line treatment of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). In case of MTX failure, it is discussed to start a Biologic Disease-modifying Antirheumatic Drug (bDMARDs) acco...
This multi-center, open-label, single-arm, Phase IIIb study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of RoActemra/Actemra alone or in combination with non-biologic disease modifying antirheum...
This single arm, open-label study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of RoActemra/Actemra (tocilizumab) in patients with active, moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis who have an inad...
Rheumatoid arthritis of children occurring in three major subtypes defined by the symptoms present during the first six months following onset: systemic-onset (Still's Disease, Juvenile-Onset), polyarticular-onset, and pauciarticular-onset. Adult-onset cases of Still's disease (STILL'S DISEASE, ADULT-ONSET) are also known. Only one subtype of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (polyarticular-onset, rheumatoid factor-positive) clinically resembles adult rheumatoid arthritis and is considered its childhood equivalent.
Arthritis in children, with onset before 16 years of age. The terms juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA) and juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) refer to classification systems for chronic arthritis in children. Only one subtype of juvenile arthritis (polyarticular-onset, rheumatoid factor-positive) clinically resembles adult rheumatoid arthritis and is considered its childhood equivalent.
Systemic-onset rheumatoid arthritis in adults. It differs from classical rheumatoid arthritis in that it is more often marked by acute febrile onset, and generalized lymphadenopathy and hepatosplenomegaly are more prominent.
A variable mixture of the mono- and disodium salts of gold thiomalic acid used mainly for its anti-inflammatory action in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. It is most effective in active progressive rheumatoid arthritis and of little or no value in the presence of extensive deformities or in the treatment of other forms of arthritis.
A chimeric monoclonal antibody to TNF ALPHA that is used in the treatment of RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS; ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS; PSORIATIC ARTHRITIS and CROHN'S DISEASE.
