Financial Support

RABBIT is financially supported by a joint grant from all companies that provide biologic DMARDs for therapy of rheumatoid arthritis. The sponsorship is unconditional; therefore, solely the principle investigators and the scientific advisory board are responsible for data acquisition and analysis as well as for publication of results; the drug manufacturers have no influence over this.
