  Purpose
This observational study will assess the efficacy and safety of combination of rituximab (MabThera) and methotrexate in participants with active refractory rheumatoid arthritis (RA) who have failed to respond to a single course of anti-tumor necrosis factor (TNF) therapy in routine clinical practice. Data will be collected from participants for 12 months after the first dose of rituximab or a minimum of 6 months following a rituximab re-treatment course.
