Research and development
The BSRBR-RA recruited its first patient in 2001 and, as the study has been running for such a long time, there is a lot of information contained in our study site file.
Importantly, there is help available to help you to recruit patients via the CRN and also in the devolved nations.
BSRBR-RA was approved by the North West MREC (Multicentre Research Ethics Committee) on 1 December 2000, reference 00/8/053.
The full title for the research is "Prospective observational study of the long-term hazards of anti-TNF therapy in Rheumatoid Arthritis".
There have been a number of substantial amendments since the study began. Further details can be found on our site file documents page.
