HUMIRA: Ankylosing Spondylitis Treatment
HUMIRA reduces the signs and symptoms of AS
The stiffness. The pain. Talk to your doctor about your symptoms and if treatment with HUMIRA may be right for you.
Here's a clinical study about AS treatment with HUMIRA:
In a study of patients with active ankylosing spondylitis, treatment with HUMIRA showed the following results:
- 58% of AS patients treated with HUMIRA showed 20% reduction in the signs and
symptoms of AS at 12 weeks (compared to 21% on placebo).
- Patients on HUMIRA continued to experience a reduction in signs and symptoms for
up to 52 weeks.
HUMIRA is a prescription medicine used to reduce the signs and symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis in adults.
HUMIRA can be injected by you or a caregiver in the convenience of your own home. It usually needs to be used once every 2 weeks.
Do not try to inject HUMIRA yourself until you have been shown the right way to give the injections. If your doctor decides that you may be able to give your injections at home, you should receive training on the right way to prepare and inject HUMIRA. Your first injection should be given under the supervision of a qualified healthcare professional.
One of the most common side effects with HUMIRA is injection site reactions such as redness, rash, swelling, itching or bruising. These symptoms usually will go away within a few days.
