  • Rheumatoid Arthritis Shared Decision Making

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Shared decision making is the first overarching principle for the treat to target guidelines for rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and has been proposed as a potential mechanism to reduce health disparities, however there is little evidence to inform effective ways to implement this practice in the care of Veterans with RA. The purpose of this project is to evaluate the effectiveness of a multi-component shared decision making intervention on RA disease activity, adherence to RA medications and patient knowledge of RA. The proposed research will contribute to fundamental knowledge about how to effectively foster shared decision making across varied VA rheumatology clinical settings to improve patient disease outcomes and experience; and support clinicians to engage patients in meaningful ways with the ultimate goal to improve health, reduce disability, and eliminate disparities.

  • Zr-89 Cimzia PET Imaging Rheumatoid Arthritis

    Sorry, currently not accepting new patients, but might later

    This is a single center exploratory imaging study investigating the initial application of zirconium-89 Deferoxamine B Certolizumab pegol (89Zr-DFO-CZP) PET in patients with rheumatoid arthritis. Patients with active symptoms of RA or signs on physical exam will be invited to participate for PET imaging.

  • CD40L Antagonism in Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA)

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The primary objective is to determine if the addition of a 12-week course of treatment with VIB4920 to TNFi treatment will result in improved clinical disease control in patients with RA who have had an inadequate response to a TNFi.
