About Rheumatoid Arthritis
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic disease that causes pain, stiffness, swelling and loss of function in the joints and inflammation in other organs. While the exact cause of the disease remains unknown, autoimmune and inflammatory processes lead to chronic and progressive joint damage. According to the American College of Rheumatology, RA affects more than two million Americans, with disease onset occurring most frequently in people between the ages of 20 and 45. Symptoms are treated with a variety of steroidal and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and disease modifying drugs such as methotrexate, cyclosporine and etanercept. Direct and indirect costs associated with RA reached $65 billion in 1992. Sales of ENBREL for the treatment of moderate to severe RA were $366.9 million in 1999. There is no cure for RA.
