new drugs on the horizon for rheumatoid arthritis
There's lots of excitement about all the new drugs on the horizon for rheumatoid arthritis...Arava, Enbrel, Celebrex, Vioxx.
Arava (leflunomide) is a new disease-modifying antirheumatic drug. Hoechst is marketing it now in the U.S...later in Canada.
It's for first-line therapy...as an alternative to methotrexate, hydroxychloroquine, etc.
