Hi e. Welcome to the arthritis board! We do have a lot of fun. I don't know much about the drug you are referring to, but my rheumatologist has mentioned it. Is that one of the newer drugs that is an IV drip? If so, my rheumatologist said he would try me on it, but I would like to exhaust the injectables first since they're a heck of a lot more convenient. My rheumy did say there were two newer RA drugs that were just FDA approved, and that there were several more late in the approval process. Pretty soon there will be a whole host of new TNF-inhibitors. Good luck in your study! I hope it helps you.
