Rheumatoid arthritis may not be as common as osteoarthritis, but it still affects more than 1.3 million Americans. Since it is an autoimmune disease, it can also develop at any age. More than 300,000 children are living with some form of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA). By getting involved in clinical trials, you’re helping research teams around the world find and develop better treatments for rheumatoid arthritis.

This is a great question and the answer is that it depends on a few factors. Each rheumatoid arthritis clinical trial we conduct has a unique set of qualification criteria. A clinical diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis isn’t the only factor involved. It may seem restricting, but it is an important element when conducting clinical research. If you have questions, please call us at (386) 785-2400.
Here are few general qualification criteria to keep in mind:
- You’ll need to have a clinically confirmed diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis in order to qualify for one of our clinical trials.

- Volunteers who don’t have health insurance can still qualify to participate for one of our rheumatoid arthritis clinical trials.

Signs & Symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis
The symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis typically affect the small joints in the hands and feet first. However, every joint in the body is at risk of inflammation. RA can also cause severe damage to the vital organs since it’s an autoimmune disease.
The inflammation caused by rheumatoid arthritis (RA) can affect any joint in the body. However, the small joints of the hands and feet are usually the first to be affected. As an autoimmune disease, RA symptoms can affect vital organs in addition to the joints. The most common symptoms of RA include:
- Chronic levels of pain in the joints, back and muscles
- Joint stiffness
- Inflamed joints
- Weak joints
- Joint deformities
- Chronic fatigue
- Unusual lumps (rheumatoid nodules), skin rashes and ulcers
