This registry is a multi-center, prospective, observational program that will gather and analyze data on subjects being treated with infliximab and golimumab for rheumatoid arthritis (RA), ankylosing spondylitis (AS), or psoriatic arthritis (PsA). In contrast to a controlled clinical trial, there is no imposed experimental intervention and the subjects' physicians solely will determine the subject's treatment. Thus, the data captured and reported in this registry will reflect a "real world" approach to treatment with infliximab or golimumab.
