Musculoskeletal Ultrasound in Predicting Early Dose Titration With Tocilizumab

The purpose of this research study is to determine if a change in inflammation or baseline inflammation seen on the ultrasound is a good indicator of how rheumatoid arthritis patients respond to TCZ 4mg/kg and whether early prediction of dose escalation is possible by utilizing ultrasound inflammatory measures.

Not Provided
Interventional
Phase 4
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment

All subjects will start at 4mg/kg. After 3 months, if DAS28 > 3.2, dosage will be escalated to 8 mg/kg.
Other Name: Actemra
Tocilizumab
All subjects will receive tocilizumab.
