In brief: Rheumatoid arthritis

Anakinra is a medication that suppresses your immune system and reduces the signs and symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis after another med option has failed.
This med may be used to treat Neonatal Onset Multisystem inflammatory disease. Kineret may lower your body’s ability to fight infections, so you may experience flu symptoms or a rash around the injection site, which should go away in 2-4 weeks
