Randomised controlled trials of tofacitinib in RA

Embedded Image
  • *Since tofacitinib at 5 mg twice daily failed to be statistically significant for radiographic progression, and due to the step-down procedure applied to primary efficacy end points, significance was not declared for the HAQ Disability Index (DI) score or remission (DAS28-Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR) <2.6) for tofacitinib at 5 mg twice daily.

  • †For both groups versus placebo.
