Humira is a drug used to treat rheumatoid arthritis.  Recently, Humira has been associated with an increased risk for infection and malignancy, even when administered in correct doses.  As a result of both the mislabeling of Humira products and its association with an increased risk for cancer and infection, a number of Humira lawsuits are currently being filed.
