What we are studying
The purpose of this study is to compare the effects (good and bad) of the drug anakinra for the treatment of a rare disorder that causes swelling and pain in the joints, fever and a rash. In this study, anakinra will be compared to placebo. A placebo is a substance, like a sugar pill, that is not thought to have any effect on your disease or condition. In this study, participants will either receive the active study medication, anakinra, or placebo which is not active. Placebos are used in research studies to see if the drug being studied really does have an effect.
