Frequently Asked Questions

  • What does “double-blind” mean?
    • “Double-blind” means that you will not know if you are receiving the study drug or placebo, and the doctor will also not know if you are on study drug or placebo. Only the study sponsor will know.
  • If there is a placebo, does that mean there is a chance I won’t be receiving any medication for my RA?
    • No, all subjects will be receiving a base medication for RA. Both VIB4920, and the placebo are added onto the base treatment.
  • Will I get paid to be on the study?
    • No, however all subjects will receive a $52 travel stipend per completed study visit, to cover any service fares, gas, and/or common wear and tear to vehicles.
  • If I change my mind after starting the study, do I have to complete every visit?
