New Treatment for Rheumatoid Arthritis

FDA Regulators in November approved Pfizer’s Xeljanz treatment for rheumatoid arthritis, which is now poised to compete with Abbott Laboratories’ top-selling Humira. Pfizer’s pill is for patients with moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis who did not benefit from or were unable to tolerate the standard oral treatment, methotrexate. Xeljanz can be used by itself or in combination with methotrexate and certain other treatments.

The F.D.A. approved a 5-milligram dose of Xeljanz, given twice a day. The agency said further safety data was needed to assess a 10-milligram, twice-daily dose, that Pfizer had also put before regulators.
