The UCB/OXO Cimzia® PFS prefilled syringe is the
first ever syringe designed for patients with arthritis. It
makes patients feel more in control and empowered
during their self-injection, instead of
reminding them of their illness. The nonslip finger
grip allows the syringe to be held steadily; a finger loop enables
easy cap removal and prevents accidental needle
sticks; an oversized plunger rod and a large rubberized
thumb pad aid pushing the plunger; the clear
oval syringe barrel assists in needle placement and
improves visibility. The redesigned syringe allows
patients to exert an average of 48% more force than with a traditional syringe.
