In a clinical study, at 26 weeks, more than half of the patients on HUMIRA saw significant symptom relief and many achieved remission. HUMIRA is a prescription medicine used to reduce signs and symptoms, and to achieve and maintain clinical remission in children 6 years of age and older with moderate to severe Crohn’s disease when certain other treatments have not worked well enough.
HUMIRA was first approved in the United States in 2002 as a biologic therapy. It has been studied in 76 different clinical trials worldwide, and it’s approved in the US for 8 different conditions, including moderate to severe Crohn’s disease in adults in 2007, moderate to severe juvenile idiopathic arthritis in children 2 years of age and older in 2008, and moderate to severe pediatric Crohn's disease in children 6 years of age and older in 2014. Over one million patients are currently being treated with HUMIRA worldwide.*
HUMIRA is a prescription medicine used to reduce signs and symptoms, and to achieve and maintain clinical remission in adults with moderate to severe Crohn’s disease who have not responded well to conventional treatments. HUMIRA is also used to reduce signs and symptoms and achieve clinical remission in these adults who have also lost response to or are unable to tolerate infliximab.
HUMIRA is a prescription medicine used alone, with methotrexate, or with certain other medicines to reduce the signs and symptoms of moderate to severe polyarticular juvenile idiopathic arthritis in children 4 years of age and older.
*As of June 2016.
Some people receiving TNF blockers including HUMIRA developed a rare type of cancer called hepatosplenic T-cell lymphoma (HSTCL), which often results in death. Most of these people were male teenagers or young men and also were being treated for inflammatory bowel disease with another medicine called Imuran®† (azathioprine) or Purinethol®† (6-mercaptopurine, 6–MP).
