Product Information

This intravenous rheumatoid arthritis drug, with the generic name abatacept, helps reduce symptoms and prevent damage. The drug contains a protein which binds to antigen-presenting cells (APCs) so they cannot signal T cells to activate. The T cells will not attack antigens so the immune response is minimized, reducing rheumatoid arthritis symptoms. After three intravenous treatments, each two weeks apart, continue to administer the treatments every four weeks to maintain rheumatoid arthritis symptom relief.
