  Purpose

This observational study will explore the Swedish national population of patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) on infliximab maintenance therapy in order to identify patients who may be eligible for a dose reduction study. Patients will be asked a variety of questions regarding their treatment dosing and disease activity, and then asked whether or not they would consider participating in a dose reduction study. Patients in this study will be described in terms of demographic and disease characteristics.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Dosing Interval Between the Infliximab Infusions [ Time Frame: Measured from the Remicade Questionnaire at first (and only) study visit ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Reason for Extending Dosing Interval [ Time Frame: Measured from the Remicade Questionnaire at first (and only) study visit ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Patient Response to Increased Dosing Interval [ Time Frame: Measured from the Remicade Questionnaire at first (and only) study visit ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Number of Patients Agreeing to Participate in a Dose Reduction Study [ Time Frame: Measured from the Remicade Questionnaire at first (and only) study visit ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Disease Activity Score Based on Assessment of 28 Joints (DAS28), Health Assessment Questionnaire (HAQ), C-reactive Protein (CRP), Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR), Infliximab Dosage. [ Time Frame: Measured at first (and only) study visit, and outcomes measured during the two preceding physician visits are extracted from the Swedish Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) Registry. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Adverse Events (AEs) [ Time Frame: Collected at first (and only) study visit, all AEs reported during the previous 12 months is collected from the Swedish Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) Registry. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Duration of Subject's Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) Diagnosis, European Quality of Life Group 1990 5 Dimension (EQ5D) and Patient Remicade Questionnaire. [ Time Frame: Measured at first (and only) study visit, and outcomes measured during the two preceding physician visits are extracted from the Swedish Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) Registry. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
