  Purpose
This study was designed to provide all adult and pediatric arthritis patients (placebo and etanercept(TNFR:Fc) treated) who have participated in clinical trials with etanercept (TNFR:Fc) the opportunity to receive continued treatment with etanercept (TNFR:Fc). The primary objective of this study is to examine safety parameters.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Total Exposure to Etanercept With Gaps [ Time Frame: Up to 10 years ]
    Total participant exposure to etanercept (Enbrel) with gaps

  • Total Exposure Adjusted Rate of Malignancies [ Time Frame: Up to 10 years ]
    Exposure-adjusted rate of malignancies, excluding nonmelanoma skin cancers, occurring on study within 30 days of the last dose of etanercept

  • Total Exposure Adjusted Rate of Deaths [ Time Frame: Up to 10 years ]
    Rate of deaths within 30 days of the last dose of etanercept, adjusted for total exposure to etanercept

  • Total Exposure Adjusted Rate of Serious Infectious Events [ Time Frame: Up to 10 years ]
    Exposure-adjusted rate of serious infectious events (associated with hospitalization or IV antibiotics) occurring on study within 30 days of the last dose of etanercept

  • Total Exposure Adjusted Rate of Lymphomas [ Time Frame: Up to 10 years ]
    Rate of lymphomas occurring on study within 30 days of the last dose of etanercept, adjusted for total exposure to etanercept

  • Malignancy [ Time Frame: Up to 10 years ]
    Occurrence of one or more malignancies on study within 30 days of the last dose of etanercept

  • Lymphoma [ Time Frame: Up to 10 years ]
    Occurrence of one or more lymphomas on study within 30 days of the last dose of etanercept

  • Serious Infectious Event [ Time Frame: Up to 10 years ]
    Occurrence of one or more serious infectious events within the participant on study within 30 days of the last dose of study medication. A serious infectious event is a serious adverse event that is infectious.

  • Death [ Time Frame: Up to 10 years ]
    Occurrence of death on study within 30 days of the last dose of etanercept

  • Total Exposure Adjusted Rate of Serious Adverse Events [ Time Frame: Up to 10 years ]
    Rate of serious adverse events adjusted to total exposure to etanercept (events / exposure * 100)


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Dosing Period [ Time Frame: Up to 10 years ]
    Duration of etanercept dosing

  • Tender Joint Count [ Time Frame: Month 12 ]
    Number of tender joints, as assessed by the investigator using criteria based on pressure and joint manipulation

  • Swollen Joint Count [ Time Frame: Month 12 ]
    Number of swollen joints

  • Health Assessment Questionnaire Disability Index [ Time Frame: Month 12 ]
    Health Assessment Questionnaire Disability Index (HAQ DI). This index is a weighted average of 24 items, each scored 0 (no difficulty) to 3 (unable to function).

  • Childhood Health Assessment Questionnaire [ Time Frame: Month 12 ]
    Childhood Health Assessment Questionnaire (CHAQ) disability index, having a range of 0 (no difficulty) to 3 (unable to do).

  • C-Reactive Protein [ Time Frame: Month 12 ]
    C-reactive protein at month 12

  • ACR20 at Month 3 in Adults [ Time Frame: Baseline and month 3 ]
    American College of Rheumatology (ACR) 20, defined as a 20% improvement in both tender and swollen joints (78 joints) and a 20% improvement in 3 of 5 items (including physician and patient global assessments), in adults

  • JRA DOI 30 at Month 3 in Juveniles [ Time Frame: Baseline and month 3 ]
    Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis Definition of Improvement 30 (JRA DOI 30), defined as a 30% improvement from baseline in 3 of 6 items (including Childhood Health Assessment Questionnaire, disease severity, overall well-being, and erythrocyte sedimentation rate) and a worsening of >30% in at most one of the remaining items.

  • Standardized Incidence Rate for All SEER Cancers [ Time Frame: up to 10 years ]
    Standardized incidence rate for all cancers tracked by the National Cancer Institute's Surveillance Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) system.


Enrollment: 639
Study Start Date: April 1997
Study Completion Date: April 2009
Primary Completion Date: December 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
1 Biological: Etanercept
Adult Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) patients on etanercept (TNFR:Fc) with well controlled arthritic symptoms will continue on the etanercept (TNFR:Fc) dose administered in their original protocol of enrollment. All other adults will receive 50 mg per week as two 25 mg subcutaneous (SC) injections at separate sites, either on the same day or 3 or 4 days apart. Pediatric patients ages 4 to 17 years will receive a 0.8 mg/kg per week dose (up to a maximum of 50 mg per week).
