Patient Moving From Childhood to Adolescence

Meet Dhruv, a 16-year-old patient diagnosed with JIA (extended oligoarthritis).1


'I was only 12 when they first told me that I had JIA.1'

‘My parents have tried to stay positive over the years, but I can tell they find it difficult2,3 – I’m really dependent on them’.

‘I just want to do what everyone else is doing – go out with my friends, hang out at the park – without feeling awful,4 without people feeling sorry for me’.

‘The NSAIDs and MTX just make me feel rubbish all the time.1,4 How am I going to be able to go to university or get a good job if I can’t even do basic things’?

Despite advances in JIA treatment, many children may never attain long-term remission in their adolescence.2,5,6 Only 33% of patients with JIA obtain complete remission in early adolescence.6,*

Note: This is a hypothetical case for representation purpose only.


Patients with JIA such as Dhruv moving from childhood to adolescence benefit from the long-term efficacy and safety profile of Enbrel®1,7-16


Enbrel® was the first biologic approved for more than 1 subtype of JIA.17

  • Long-term efficacy and tolerability maintained in clinical trials for up to 10 years1,7-11
    • Measures of disease activity and PROs were relatively stable in eoJIA, ERA and PsA7,†
    • Number and frequency of TEAEs, excluding infections and ISRs, decreased over time7,†
  • Long-term efficacy and tolerability maintained in real-life clinical practice for up to 10 years12-16
    • ​​​​​​​Therapeutic benefits were sustained in sJIA, poJIA, eoJIA, pJIA (RF+ and RF−) PsA and ERA12,‡
    • No functional limitations reported by almost half of the patients who were followed into adulthood12,‡
    • No new safety risks identified during 5+ years of exposure13,14,§

From the 6-year interim findings of the 2-year open-label CLIPPER study of JIA patients (eoJIA, ERA and PsA) (N=127) and its ongoing long-term extension, CLIPPER 2 (N=109).7,†


ACR and JADAS Inactive Disease Response Rates Over 72 Months7

Please consult the LPD for contraindications, warnings, precautions and other important safety information.



Please note: The examples described here are not of actual patients, but fictitious representations of scenarios for which Enbrel® (etanercept) could be considered.


*From a prospective cohort study of 434 patients diagnosed with JIA between 1997 and 2000 in Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland. Results are based on outcomes of 329 patients who attended a clinical follow-up visit approximately 18 years after disease onset. Complete remission was defined as remission for at least 12 months off medication.4


From the 6-year interim findings of the 2-year open-label CLIPPER study of patients with JIA (eoJIA, ERA, PsA) (N=127) and its ongoing long-term extension, CLIPPER2 (N=109).7


Study design: Foeldvari I, et al. 2019.


CLIPPER was a 2-year open-label study that assessed the efficacy and safety of Enbrel® in paediatric patients with eoJIA, ERA and PsA. Patients who received at least 1 dose of Enbrel® and who completed approximately 2 years of CLIPPER were eligible to enter CLIPPER 2, which is an ongoing, 8-year, long-term extension study.7

The primary endpoint of CLIPPER was the percentage of patients achieving ACR30 response at Week 12.8 Efficacy endpoints assessed to date (24 months of CLIPPER and 48 months of CLIPPER 2) included the JIA core set of measures, the JIA ACR response criteria and the JADAS.8 Safety assessments included TEAEs.7


From the JuMBO registry, which followed 346 patients with JIA formerly included in the BiKeR registry into adolescence. Both physician- (clinical status, AEs) and patient- (functional capacity, HRQoL) reported outcomes were recorded.12


§From observation of Enbrel® safety in JIA patients enrolled in BiKeR and JuMBO, most of whom were prospectively followed for more than 5 years.13,14
