Clinical Trial Details


Research Study Summary

A Phase 3, Randomized, Double-Blind Study Comparing ABT-494 to Placebo on Stable Conventional Synthetic Disease-Modifying Anti-Rheumatic Drugs (csDMARDs) in Subjects with Moderately to Severely Active Rheumatoid Arthritis with Inadequate Response or Intolerance to Biologic DMARDs (bDMARDs)


Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic systemic inflammatory disease of unknown etiology. The hallmark feature of RA is an inflammatory process manifested by persistent symmetric polyarthritis of synovial joints which can ultimately lead to bone erosions, deformity, and disability. Early therapy with disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs) is the standard of care. Despite major progress in the treatment of RA, there still remains a large unmet medical need and novel therapies are needed to complement the available interventions to address this unmet need.
