Any progress with the drug Humira as a treatment?

Curious if anyone has heard of any trials or progress in the research of the anti-TNF drug adalimumab (Humira) as a treatment option.

I read something a few days ago that suggested this was being studied and had promising results. It seems that it was from a few years back though.

The trial is finished, results were due this year but their webpage now says 2021 https://ridd.octru.ox.ac.uk/ and phase 2a paper is here https://www.researchgate.net/publication..._Clinical_Trial

Re: Any progress with the drug Humira as a treatment?

Many trials have been postponed/extended due to Covid. Might be the case here, too. I am sure they will present results on the International Dupuytren Conference in 2021.

I myself am using Adalimumab from Humira to treat my Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA). While it so far works excellently for my RA, I haven't observed any effect on my bent Dupuytren finger. A pity, I would have loved that side effect ... Might be that the statement on
https://www.dupuytren-online.info/dupuyt...s_research.html
is true: "Further studies are required to analyse the effect on Dpuytren contracture, its possible improvement or slow down, and potential side effects."

Thanks for the responses.

Everything that I have read suggests that it would not reverse any current state of the disease; instead possibly halt any further progression. Seems it may be a treatment for very early treatment or post op to prevent recurrence.
