Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Total Number of Patients With Adverse Events [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Adverse events were assessed from the time treatment began until treatment ended after 24 weeks. Details about the adverse events and serious adverse events are presented with the adverse event section of the disclosure. This outcome is measured as a percentage of patients with adverse events.

  • Patient Effectiveness Response Rating and Effective Rate of Humira With Disease Activity Score (DAS) 28 at Week 4 [ Time Frame: Week 4 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Effectiveness was assessed according to European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR) response criteria. The investigator rated patient response as good, moderate, or none from baseline to Week 4. The DAS 28 index is a measure of activity derived from the number of swollen or tender joints, laboratory tests of inflammation, and patient assessment of global health (10 cm line ranging from very good to very bad).

  • Patient Effectiveness Response Rating and Effective Rate of Humira With DAS 28 at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Effectiveness was assessed according to European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR) response criteria. The investigator rated patient response as good, moderate, or none from baseline to Week 12. The DAS 28 index is a measure of activity derived from the number of swollen or tender joints, laboratory tests of inflammation, and patient assessment of global health (10 cm line ranging from very good to very bad).

  • Patient Effectiveness Response Rating and Effective Rate of Humira With DAS 28 at Week 24 [ Time Frame: Week 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Effectiveness was assessed according to European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR) response criteria. The investigator rated patient response as good, moderate, or none from baseline to Week 24. The DAS 28 index is a measure of activity derived from the number of swollen or tender joints, laboratory tests of inflammation, and patient assessment of global health (10 cm line ranging from very good to very bad).


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Physicians' Overall Effectiveness Response Rating [ Time Frame: Week 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Physicians' rated the level of overall patient improvement as "markedly improved," "improved," "not changed," or "not assessable" by comparing clinical conditions at Week 24 or at discontinuation with baseline conditions.
