Learn About SIMPONI®
If your doctor has talked to you about a biologic treatment for your active ankylosing spondylitis, but you’ve been hesitant to get started, ask your doctor about SIMPONI®. SIMPONI® is a once-monthly self-injectable biologic treatment with support from SimponiOne® that can help you get off to a good start.
SIMPONI® is the first and only self-injectable biologic treatment for adults with active ankylosing spondylitis that requires just one injection each month.
Once you and your doctor are comfortable with the self-injection process, you will inject SIMPONI® under the skin, just once a month.
The SIMPONI® Difference
Proven effective with just one injection, once a month.
In clinical trials, just one monthly injection of SIMPONI® is proven to help relieve the pain and stiffness of active ankylosing spondylitis. Your results may vary.
Two easy-to-use injection options.
Choose either the SmartJect® autoinjector or the prefilled syringe. Both injection devices provide a low volume of medicine (0.5 mL) with each dose and have been awarded the Ease-of-Use Commendation by the Arthritis Foundation®.
The easy-to-use SmartJect® autoinjector is specially designed with your needs in mind to help you inject on your own, in the comfort of your home. It offers a thin needle that remains hidden throughout the injection process so you never have to see the needle.

Are SIMPONI® injections painful?
For most people with moderate to severe RA, active psoriatic arthritis or active ankylosing spondylitis who participated in clinical trials, SIMPONI® injections were pain-free. Through 4 months of the studies, less than 1% of people treated with SIMPONI® reported experiencing any injection site pain, and 6% experienced injection site reactions, such as redness, swelling, itching, pain, bruising, or tingling. To learn more about these and other risks, please read the Important Safety Information, about SIMPONI® below, and the Medication Guide, and talk with your doctor.
