Orencia for Rheumatoid Arthritis

Many different medications can be used for rheumatoid arthritis, and Orencia® (abatacept) is a commonly prescribed one. It is used in cases when disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs) or other biological response modifiers have been tried without success.
 
In clinical studies using Orencia for rheumatoid arthritis, people who took the drug had fewer tender or swollen joints and were better able to perform their usual daily activities, such as walking, eating, or dressing, compared to people who did not take Orencia. It also slowed down structural damage to the joints.
