Previous ecological data suggest a decline in the need for joint replacements in RA patients following the introduction of TNF inhibitor (TNFi) therapy, although patient-level data are lacking. Our primary aim was to estimate the association between TNFi use and subsequent incidence of total hip replacement (THR) and total knee replacement.

The impact of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) symptoms on patients' lives is significant. This study evaluated the effect of sarilumab on patient-perceived impact of RA using the 7-domain RA Impact of Disea...
Tryptophan and its metabolites have been suggested to play a role in inflammatory processes. However, studies in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) are scarce, which prompted us to investigate two cohorts of R...
The purpose of the study is to compare the short- and long-term effectiveness of an individualized, resource-oriented joint protection intervention with the standard, problem-oriented join...

A Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Clinical Study of the Oral IL-12/23 Inhibitor, STA-5326 Mesylate, Administered to Patients With Rheumatoid Arthritis to Determine Safety, Tolerability, Pharmacokinetic and Synovial Tissue Outcomes
It is not fully clear how rheumatoid arthritis originates and develops, but it is understood that multiple genetic and environmental factors interact to trigger its onset. The immune syst...
This study will evaluate the retention rates of two advanced therapies, Tumour Necrosis Factor (TNF) and Janus kinase inhibitor (JAK) in the treatment of adults with Rheumatoid Arthritis (...
Rheumatoid Arthritis patients management reposes primarily on the use of disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs). Among DMARDs available in 2015, researchers demonstrated the abili...
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.
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.
A pyrazole derivative and selective CYCLOOXYGENASE 2 INHIBITOR that is used to treat symptoms associated with RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS; OSTEOARTHRITIS and JUVENILE ARTHRITIS, as well as the management of ACUTE PAIN.
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.
Deformities acquired after birth as the result of injury or disease. The joint deformity is often associated with rheumatoid arthritis and leprosy.
Cytokine Tumour Necrosis Factor (TNF)
TNF is a compound that is classified as a cytokine which plays a central role in the cellular mechanisms of apoptosis or cell death. However, there are a number of different kinds of TNF, just under twenty, but the family of molecules have very similar a...
