New Drug Sought To Treat People With Moderate To Severe Rheumatoid Arthritis
Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease that occurs when the immune system attacks the lining of your joints. Unfortunately, some people with moderate to severe RA don't respond well to medications that are used to treat the disease, some patients even suffer unwanted side effects.
There is hope. Researchers are investigating a drug that may help people with moderate to severe RA. This study is for people whose RA has not responded well enough to previous treatment with methotrexate. The study will compare an investigational drug to another already-approved treatment for RA and placebo.
As a CureClick Ambassador I want to share this information with my readers because it could be helpful for medically treating people who have the RA. Visit the research sponsor's website to learn more.

For those of you whom are not familiar with clinical trials, here's some information that you can use:
What Are Clinical Trials?
Clinical trials are research studies to determine whether investigational drugs or treatments are safe and effective for humans.
All investigational devices and medicines must undergo several clinical trials, often times these clinical trials require thousands of people.
Why participate in a clinical trial?
People whom are eligible will have access to new investigational treatments that would be available to the general public only upon approval.
People whom are eligible for clinical trials will also receive study-related medical care and attention from clinical staff at research facilities.
Clinical trials offer hope for many people and gives researchers a chance to find better treatment for others in the future.
