Infliximab and methotrexate in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. Anti-Tumor Necrosis Factor Trial in Rheumatoid Arthritis with Concomitant Therapy Study Group.
TLDR
In patients with persistently active rheumatoid arthritis despite methotrexate therapy, repeated doses of infliximab in combination with methotRexate provided clinical benefit and halted the progression of joint damage.
Adalimumab, a fully human anti tumor necrosis factor-alpha monoclonal antibody, and concomitant standard antirheumatic therapy for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis: results of STAR (Safety Trial of Adalimumab in Rheumatoid Arthritis).
TLDR
The data indicate that adalimumab is a safe and effective therapeutic option in patients with active RA who have an inadequate response to standard antirheumatic therapy, including one or more traditional DMARD, corticosteroids, NSAID, and analgesics.
Infliximab treatment for rheumatoid arthritis, with dose titration based on the Disease Activity Score: dose adjustments are common but not always sufficient to assure sustained benefit.
BACKGROUND Randomised controlled trials have shown that treatment with anti-tumour necrosis factor (anti-TNF) agents is effective in refractory rheumatoid arthritis (RA). OBJECTIVE To determine the
Combination of infliximab and methotrexate therapy for early rheumatoid arthritis: a randomized, controlled trial.
TLDR
For patients with active RA in its early stages, combination therapy with MTX and infliximab provides greater clinical, radiographic, and functional benefits than treatment withMTX alone.
Efficacy and safety of the fully human anti-tumour necrosis factor alpha monoclonal antibody adalimumab (D2E7) in DMARD refractory patients with rheumatoid arthritis: a 12 week, phase II study.
TLDR
Adalimumab given as monotreatment to patients with longstanding, severe RA refractory to traditional DMARDs produced a rapid, sustained response and was safe and well tolerated, with no dose limiting side effects.
Efficacy and safety of the fully human anti-tumour necrosis factor a monoclonal antibody adalimumab ( D 2 E 7 ) in DMARD refractory patients with rheumatoid arthritis : a 12 week , phase II study
TLDR
Adalimumab given as monotreatment to patients with longstanding, severe RA refractory to traditional DMARDs produced a rapid, sustained response and was safe and well tolerated, with no dose limiting side effects.
Golimumab, a human anti-tumor necrosis factor alpha monoclonal antibody, injected subcutaneously every four weeks in methotrexate-naive patients with active rheumatoid arthritis: twenty-four-week results of a phase III, multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study of golimumab bef
TLDR
The modified ITT analysis of the primary end point and other prespecified efficacy measures demonstrated that the efficacy of golimumab plus MTX is better than, and the efficacious of Golimumab alone is similar to, the effectiveness of MTX alone in reducing RA signs and symptoms in MTX-naive patients, with no unexpected safety concerns.
Long term safety of infliximab.

TLDR
While infections were reported more frequently overall in the patients given infliximab, there was no increased risk of serious infections and drug-induced lupus was seen in less than 1%, with these cases resolving upon discontinuation of the drug.

Therapeutic efficacy of multiple intravenous infusions of anti-tumor necrosis factor alpha monoclonal antibody combined with low-dose weekly methotrexate in rheumatoid arthritis.
TLDR
Multiple infusions of cA2 were effective and well tolerated, with the best results occurring at 3 and 10 mg/kg either alone or in combination with MTX in approximately 60% of patients with active RA despite therapy with low-dose MTX.
A trial of etanercept, a recombinant tumor necrosis factor receptor:Fc fusion protein, in patients with rheumatoid arthritis receiving methotrexate.
TLDR
In patients with persistently active rheumatoid arthritis, the combination of etanercept and methotrexate was safe and well tolerated and provided significantly greater clinical benefit than metotrexate alone.
Treatment of rheumatoid arthritis with chimeric monoclonal antibodies to tumor necrosis factor alpha.
TLDR
Preliminary results support the hypothesis that TNF alpha is an important regulator in RA, and suggest that it may be a useful new therapeutic target in this disease.
Combination therapy with cyclosporine and methotrexate in severe rheumatoid arthritis. The Methotrexate-Cyclosporine Combination Study Group.
TLDR
In a six-month study, patients with severe rheumatoid arthritis and only partial responses to methotrexate had clinically important improvement after combination therapy with cyclosporine and metotrexate.
Treatment of rheumatoid arthritis with a recombinant human tumor necrosis factor receptor (p75)-Fc fusion protein.
TLDR
In this three-month trial TNFR:Fc was safe, well tolerated, and associated with improvement in the inflammatory symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis.
The therapeutic effects of an engineered human anti-tumour necrosis factor alpha antibody (CDP571) in rheumatoid arthritis.
TLDR
CDP571, an engineered human anti-TNF alpha antibody, is well tolerated and, after a single dose of 10 mg/kg, provides improvements in symptoms, signs and serological markers of disease activity in patients with active RA.
Treatment of rheumatoid arthritis with methotrexate alone, sulfasalazine and hydroxychloroquine, or a combination of all three medications.
TLDR
In patients with rheumatoid arthritis, combination therapy with methotrexate, sulfasalazine, and hydroxychloroquine is more effective than either methot Rexate alone or a combination of sulfas alazine,and hydroxy chloroquine.
Monoclonal anti‐TNFα Antibody as a Probe of Pathogenesis and Therapy of Rheumatoid Disease
TLDR
The proposition that TNF alpha is implicated in the pathogenesis of RA, and is thus a key therapeutic target, is supported, although repeated therapy with cA2 is associated with anti-idiotypic responses in 50% of patients and a trend toward shortening of the duration of response.
