Treating to target with etanercept in rheumatoid arthritis: cost-effectiveness of dose reductions when remission is achieved.

Kobelt, Gisela LU (2014) In Value in Health 17(5). p.537-544
Abstract
Current management of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) focuses on inducing remission as early as possible to avoid lasting joint damage, and maintenance of remission has become important. A 12-month clinical trial in 834 patients with moderate RA investigated whether etanercept 50 mg/wk could be reduced to half dose or discontinued in patients who achieved low disease activity after 36 weeks.
