Brief Summary:
This is a research study to test whether a once-weekly injection of abatacept will prevent the progression of Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA) to a more severe form.To evaluate the effectiveness of a 24-week course of treatment with abatacept plus usual care versus usual care to prevent polyarthritis (≥5 joints), uveitis, or treatment with other systemic medication within 18 months of randomization in children with recent-onset limited JIA.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in Joint Count by Physician Exam [ Time Frame: Baseline, up to 18 months ]
    The number of affected joints involved at protocol specified visits by physician exam.

  2. Change in Number of participants with active anterior uveitis [ Time Frame: Baseline, up to 18 months ]
    The presence of active anterior uveitis, defined according to the Standardization of Uveitis Nomenclature for Reporting Clinical Data (SUN criteria) as the presence of one or more cells in each 1mm x 1mm slit beam field,84 will be assessed at standard of care ophthalmology visits


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in pain score as measured by PROMIS (patient reported outcome measurement system) [ Time Frame: Baseline, up to 18 months ]
    We will use The Patient Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS), to compare patient and caregiver reported outcomes between the groups. PROMIS® (Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System) is a set of person-centeredmeasures that evaluates and monitors physical, mental, and social health in adults and children.

  2. Change in fatigue level as measured by PROMIS [ Time Frame: Baseline, up to 18 months ]
    We will use The Patient Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS), to compare patient and caregiver reported outcomes between the groups. PROMIS® (Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System) is a set of person-centeredmeasures that evaluates and monitors physical, mental, and social health in adults and children.

  3. Change in functional ability by PROMIS [ Time Frame: Baseline, up to 18 months ]
    We will use The Patient Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS), to compare patient and caregiver reported outcomes between the groups. PROMIS® (Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System) is a set of person-centeredmeasures that evaluates and monitors physical, mental, and social health in adults and children.

  4. Change in anxiety by PROMIS [ Time Frame: Baseline, up to 18 months ]
    We will use The Patient Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS), to compare patient and caregiver reported outcomes between the groups. PROMIS® (Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System) is a set of person-centeredmeasures that evaluates and monitors physical, mental, and social health in adults and children.

  5. Change in depression by PROMIS [ Time Frame: Baseline, up to 18 months ]
    We will use The Patient Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS), to compare patient and caregiver reported outcomes between the groups. PROMIS® (Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System) is a set of person-centeredmeasures that evaluates and monitors physical, mental, and social health in adults and children.

  6. Change in global health by PROMIS [ Time Frame: Baseline, up to 18 months ]
    Global health is defined as overall well being; We will use The Patient Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS), to compare patient and caregiver reported outcomes between the groups. PROMIS® (Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System) is a set of person-centeredmeasures that evaluates and monitors physical, mental, and social health in adults and children.

  7. Change in family impact by PedsQL [ Time Frame: Baseline, up to 18 months ]
    The PedsQL (Pediatric Quality of Life InventoryTM) Measurement Model is a modular approach to measuring health-related quality of life (HRQOL) in healthy children and adolescents and those with acute and chronic health conditions.

  8. Change in medications side effects by JAMAR [ Time Frame: Baseline, up to 18 months ]
