  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to obtain increased knowledge concerning central pain and fatigue processing in rheumatoid arthritis, and how these conditions are influenced by treatment with Tumor Necrosis Factor (TNF) blockade with adalimumab.

Drug: adalimumab
Drug: Placebo

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment

Further study details as provided by Karolinska Institutet:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Pain processing as measured by Blood Oxygen Level Dependent (BOLD) patterns in functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) of the brain [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The main purpose of the study is to investigate effects of treatment/placebo on central nervous pain processing, measured with fMRI.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Fatigue Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The treatment effects on Fatigue VAS will be measured and related to fMRI data.


Estimated Enrollment: 90
Study Start Date: October 2010
Estimated Study Completion Date: March 2013
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
