RA (rheumatoid arthritis) patients effectively treated weekly with SC (subcutaneous) Abatacept will be switched to IV (intravenous) Abatacept and restarted with SC Abatacept four after IV ...
To evaluate safety and immunogenicity of abatacept when used with or without methotrexate in the absence of an IV loading dose of abatacept
The purpose of the sub-study is to evaluate the effect of reducing the standard abatacept 10 mg/kg dose to 5 mg/kg in subjects that have received treatment with abatacept 10 mg/kg for at l...
The primary purpose of the protocol is to show that abatacept can induce remission after 12 months of treatment and then maintained remission following 6 months of drug withdrawal.
The purpose of the study is to demonstrate the clinical efficacy of abatacept (body-weight tiered dose ~ 10mg/kg) compared with placebo on a background of methotrexate after six months (Da...
To evaluate changes in the high-density lipoprotein (HDL) proteome and HDL function in active rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients initiating therapy with abatacept or adalimumab in the Abatacept Versus...
The purpose of this review is to summarize the current knowledge concerning the mechanisms of action of Abatacept in patients with rheumatoid arthritis.
Studies have reported that the presence of elevated anti-citrullinated protein antibodies (ACPA)/RF levels, together with joint erosions, is associated with higher disease burden in terms of disabilit...
The aim of this study was to compare the clinical outcome of patients with rheumatoid arthritis seen in routine clinical practice treated with either TNF inhibitors or abatacept. To overcome potential...
An understanding of real-world predictors of abatacept retention is limited. We analysed retention rates and predictors of abatacept retention in biologic-naïve and biologic-failure patients in a 12-...
A fusion protein immunoconjugate of the extracellular domain of CTLA4 and the Fc domain of human IgG1. It functions as a T-cell co-stimulation blocker that inhibits TNF-ALPHA and prevents the activation of T-LYMPHOCYTES. It is used in the treatment of RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS.
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 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.
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.
