DosingJuvenile idiopathic arthritis

    Patients treated with Enbrel should be given the Patient Card.

    The recommended dose of Enbrel for JIA patients is weight-based:1

  • 0.4mg/kg (up to a maximum of 25mg per dose) given as a subcutaneous injection twice weekly at an interval of 3-4 days between doses,or
  • 0.8 mg/kg (up to a maximum of 50 mg per dose) given once weekly
  • No formal clinical trials have been conducted in children aged 2 to 3 years. However, limited safety data from a patient registry suggest that the safety profile in children from 2 to 3 years of age is similar to that seen in adults and children aged 4 years and older, when dosed every week with 0.8 mg/kg subcutaneously
  • There is generally no applicable use of Enbrel in children aged below 2 years in the indication juvenile idiopathic arthritis.

Discontinuation of treatment should be considered in JIA patients who show no response after 4 months. The 10 mg vial strength may be more appropriate for children below the weight of 25 kg1
