US Market Report for Rheumatoid Arthritis Immunology Drugs 2018 - Unit Sales, ASPs, Market Value & Growth Trends - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--The "US Market Report for Rheumatoid Arthritis Immunology Drugs 2018 - MedCore" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

Current treatments of RA aim to relieve the symptoms of the disease and regain the maximum functionality of the damaged joint. There is no cure for rheumatoid arthritis. The initial treatment option is disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs, also known as DMARDs.

DMARDs are a group of medications commonly used in patients with rheumatoid arthritis. Some of these drugs are also used in treating other conditions such as ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis and systemic lupus erythematosus. DMARDs work to reduce pain and inflammation, to prevent or minimize joint damage. They take effect over months and are not designed to provide immediate relief of symptoms.

DMARDs can be prescribed along with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and/or low-dose corticosteroids. Common DMARDs include methotrexate (Rheumatrex, Trexall, Otrexup, and Rasuvo), leflunomide (Arava), hydroxychloroquine (Plaquenil) and sulfasalazine (Azulfidine).

Patients in more severe stages of the disease may need biologic response modifiers. These medications can block immune system chemical signals that lead to inflammation and joint damage. The biologic drugs include ORENCIA (abatacept), HUMIRA (adalimumab), Kineret (Anakinra), CIMZIA (certolizumab), ENBREL (etanercept), SIMPONI (golimumab), REMICADE (infliximab), Rituxan and MabThera (rituximab) and Actemra (tocilizumab).
