Thumbs up Cimzia Approved for RA

The crohn's medication Cimzia (another kind of TNF inhibitor like Enbrel, Remicade or Humira) has been approved for use in moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis.

Whoo hoo! Another new med!!

Re: Cimzia Approved for RA

Shoot!!!!!!!! I can't take Cimzia or Simponi. They are both TNF inhibitors in the same class of drugs as Humira and Remicade. I'm allergic to Humira so any of the drugs that's ends with "mab" or "mumab" makes it part of the same family and I'll most likely develop an allergy to them. Enbrel was a "cept" and I wasn't allergic but it didn't work. I was hoping these 2 new ones would be a separate class. Shoot! Back to Orencia.
