Efficacy and safety of certolizumab pegol in combination with methotrexate in methotrexate-inadequate responder Chinese patients with active rheumatoid arthritis: 24-week results from a randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled phase 3 study.
To evaluate the efficacy and safety of certolizumab pegol (CZP) in combination with methotrexate (MTX) in Chinese patients with active rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and an inadequate response to MTX.
Rheumatoid arthritis is associated with an increased cardiovascular risk, secondary to endothelial dysfunction. There is accumulating evidence that methotrexate reduces cardiovascular risk in rheumato...
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...

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.
Misunderstanding among individuals, frequently research subjects, of scientific methods such as randomization and placebo controls.
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.
An effect usually, but not necessarily, beneficial that is attributable to an expectation that the regimen will have an effect, i.e., the effect is due to the power of suggestion.
