- ENBREL now has Marketing Authorisation in the treatment of severe non-radiographic axial spondyloarthritis in adults with objectives signs of inflammation, taking the form of an elevated level of C-reactive protein (CRP) and/or signs visible in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), in patients with an inadequate response to non-steroidal antiinflammatories (NSAIDs).
- Since no comparison is available with other TNF inhibitors indicated in non-radiographic axial spondyloarthritis, it is not possible to rank them.
