How can you and your
doctor choose the right RA treatment for you?
If you’ve been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and are progressing in your treatment journey, you probably have many questions:
- What are my RA treatment options?
- What’s the right treatment for me?
- How long should I try a new medication to see if it works for me?
Autoimmune diseases like RA are complex and affect different people in different ways. Some medications work for some people but not for others, regardless of dose.
There’s a new way to select your medication for rheumatoid arthritis
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is complex and affects every person differently. Because of this, it makes sense that each person should have a unique treatment approach.
There are many medications that are used to treat RA. However, until now, doctors had no way of knowing if one was more likely to work for you over another.
Now there’s the PrismRA test— a first-of-its-kind personalized test that helps your doctor prescribe or change your medication with more information, based on your unique biology.

Ask for the PrismRA test when your doctor is starting or changing your RA medication
If your RA is flaring up and you’re feeling unwell, then your doctor may suggest starting or escalating your dose for a type of medication called TNF inhibitor therapy. This drug class includes Enbrel®, Humira®, Simponi®, Remicade®, Cimzia® and others. With these as well as other drugs available, it can be hard to know which one is best for you or if you should continue your current therapy.
Based on information from the PrismRA® test, your provider may find that TNF inhibitor therapy is a solid choice for you or that a different type of medication might give you the best chance of feeling better
