i have been taking Orencia for 3.5 months and have yet to have seen relief. I get an infusion every 4weeks.
The studies show patients started to get a respons after 15 days. I looked through the package insert to see if they discussed response rates.
There is a lot of data, and too much to write out. At 3 months 16-40% of patientes achieved a 50% reduction symptoms depending on other therapies.
Basically a minority of patients saw a 50% imporvementm, more saw a 20% improvment, less with a 70% improvement.
Hope that helps.
