      Trial Summary

      This study is designed to evaluate RLHFs concerning administration of the tocilizumab autoinjector AI-1000 G2 in adults with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) who have been receiving subcutaneous (SC) tocilizumab using the commercially available prefilled syringe and needle safety device (PFS-NSD). The study will enroll participants with RA, a subset of whom will be assigned to perform self-injection with the AI-1000 G2. Enrolled caregivers (CGs) and healthcare professionals (HCPs) will administer the AI-1000 G2 injection to the remaining study participants.
