July 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Janssen Biotech, Inc. announced today the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval of SIMPONI® ARIATM (golimumab) for infusion for the treatment of adults with moderately to severely active rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in combination with  methotrexate.  SIMPONI ARIA, the only fully-human anti-tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha infusible therapy, has been shown to significantly improve signs and symptoms and physical function, and inhibit the progression of structural damage.  The SIMPONI ARIA dose regimen is 2 mg/kg given as an intravenous infusion at weeks 0 and 4, then every 8 weeks thereafter. The infusion is given over a 30-minute period, providing a short infusion time for patients. Approximately 1.3 million people in the United States are living with RA,[i] a chronic, systemic inflammatory condition that is often characterized by symptoms that include pain, stiffness and inflammation, and in some cases, joint destruction and disability.[ii]
