Actemra® During Pregnancy?

Rheumatologists need more information on how rheumatoid arthritis and Actemra® (tocilizumab) affect a pregnancy. We provide free up-to-date, evidence-based information on the use of Actemra® in pregnancy. We also conduct a nationally recognized pregnancy registry for women with RA, including those who used Actemra® while pregnant.

RA & Actemra® Pregnancy Registry

We are enrolling women with RA who have and those who have not used Actemra® in a current or recent pregnancy. Please consider referring your patients. The registry is strictly observational and open to women in the US and Canada; participants self-enroll and are not asked to take or change any medications, travel, or make any changes to current health routines.

Participants Can Expect

  • 1-3 phone interviews during pregnancy and at least 1 post-partum phone interview
  • Request of medical records for their pregnancy and for their baby
  • Babies may be eligible to receive a FREE specialized non-invasive pediatric exam with a study doctor.
