Cimzia Prefilled Syringe

Cimzia's Prefilled Syringe is the first syringe designed with and for rheumatoid arthritis patients. It is designed to overcome self-injection challenges faced by those who self-administer this biologic medication, which can be tough if people's joints are painful and inflamed from rheumatoid arthritis.  Specifically, the prefilled syringe and syringe components improve on key areas that people with rheumatoid arthritis struggle with when self injecting medication: the finger flange, plunger, needle cover and packaging. All are designed to put patients in control, empowering them during the self-injection process and promoting a more independent lifestyle.
