ABSTRACT
Tripterygium wilfordii Hook F (TwHF) is a vine that has been used for the therapy of inflammatory disease in Chinese medicine. In this study, TwHF was compared with sulfasalazine in patients with active rheumatoid arthritis. TwHF was significantly superior across most parameters, although patient withdrawal was substantial, especially in the sulfasalazine arm.
