Details and patient eligibility


Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is a chronic inflammatory disease causing pain, stiffness, swelling and loss of joint function. Despite the range of treatment options for RA steadily increasing, many patients remain sub-optimally managed, with sustained clinical remission rarely achieved. This study will assess the impact of upadacitinib treatment on achievement of remission and low disease activity in moderate to severe RA Hungarian patients in the real-world setting. Upadacitinib is an approved drug for the treatment of adults with moderately to severely active RA. Adult participants with moderate-to-severe RA will be enrolled. Around 90 participants who are prescribed upadacitinib in routine clinical practice will be enrolled in the study in approximately 8 sites in Hungary. Participants will receive upadacitinib as prescribed by the physician and will be followed for approximately 12 months. There will be no additional burden for participants in this trial compared to their standard of care. Participants will attend regular visits during the course of the study at a hospital or clinic and only data which are routinely collected during a regular visit will be utilized for this study.
