The citation for this line "Anakinra differs from native human IL-1Ra in that it has the addition of a single methionine residue at its amino terminus" has a tooltip that is malformed, and I don't know how to fix it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Regarr (talkcontribs) 21:48, 3 February 2016 (UTC)

Is it a DMARD[edit]

I'm not sure about the statement that it isn't a DMARD. From my readings it seems that there can be overlap between DMARDs and BRMs. The fact that it is a BRM distinguishes it from older non-specific medications like methotrexate, leflunomide, sulfasalazine, etc but it is still a DMARD because it is antirheumatic and slows the progression of the disease. I believe the American College of Rheumatology guidelines just calls it a biologic DMARD. (talk)

pediatric use[edit]

Hey there! The article states that the pediatric use is contraindicated, but the prescribing information ( states that it is indicated in NOMID (but not JRA) -> see section 8.4. I'm not sure how to add that information to the article.. Maybe a pharmacist here who can do that? mfg GierAffe — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:35, 9 May 2013 (UTC)

what and when approved[edit]

Article does not say when FDA/EU etc approved it and any subsequent approvals. Article reads like an advert and copy of the package insert. Needs more inline cites. - Rod57 (talk) 11:36, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
