Are you interested in taking part in a trial of patients with rheumatoid arthritis?

**New dates to be confirmed. Check back here for updates.**

Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is a chronic systemic disease that affects the joints, muscle, tendons, fibrous tissue and connective tissues. RA is a chronic disabling condition often causing pain and deformity.

About 1 in 100 people develops RA. It is not a hereditary disease and can develop at any age, but more commonly between the ages of 20 and 60. It is about three times more common in women than it is in men.

To qualify for participation in this study you need to:

  • Be aged between 18 and 77 years (inclusive) at screening
  • Have a documented diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis (with a confirmed medical history available from your GP).
  • Have a body mass index (BMI) between ≥18.0 and ≤35.0 kg/m2  (inclusive). Your BMI is calculated using the formula: weight (in kilograms) divided by height (in metres) squared).

Apart from doing something good, we will also compensate you for your time in the form of a monetary payment.
