CONCLUSION: Anti-TNF-alpha therapy with monoclonal antibodies (adalimumab and infliximab) did not only suppress disease activity but also provided a significant improvement in HGB levels. In the groups of treated with a TNF-alpha receptor antagonist (ETA) and non-biological agents, disease activity was suppressed, but there was not founded significant improvement in HGB levels after 52 weeks. Different outcomes of anti-TNF agents may be associated with their different effect mechanisms.
