Expect Kevzara to Be Used After TNF Blockers

You'll hear about a new biologic for moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis called Kevzara (kev-ZAR-ah).

Think of Kevzara (sarilumab) as similar to Actemra (tocilizumab). They both block interleukin-6...a protein that causes joint inflammation.

Kevzara and Actemra are for patients who have already tried one or more other nonbiologic or biologic disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs)...methotrexate, etanercept, etc.
