Detailed Description:

This is a multi-center, open label, continuation trial of LymphoStat-B™ in Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) subjects who achieved at least an ACR20 response in the Phase 2 study LBRA01 (NCT00071812).


Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Primary Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Have completed the LBRA01 trial.
  2. Have achieved at least an ACR20 response at the end of LBRA01.

Primary Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Have switched NSAIDs due to worsening RA disease activity, used more than 10 mg/day of oral prednisone, or were given a corticosteroid injection during the last 30 days of LBRA01.
  2. Required a new DMARD (not otherwise excluded in protocol LBRA01) to replace an ineffective one, or an additional DMARD (not to exceed 2 DMARDs in total) within the last 60 days of LBRA01.
  3. Used prohibited medications during their participation in LBRA01. These medications include the following:

    • Other investigational agents.
    • Biologic response modifiers
    • Cyclophosphamide.
    • Corticosteroid injections (except 1 injection of up to 40 mg of prednisone into an inflamed joint or intramuscularly every 6 months).
    • 2 new DMARDs.
    • 1 new DMARD plus high dose prednisone >10 mg/day.
