Brief Summary:
Several observational studies have evaluated the comparative treatment costs associated with each agent, particularly those within the anti-TNF class, but few have evaluated the impact of therapy compliance, persistence, treatment patterns on patient reported outcomes, healthcare utilization and costs, using a provider database. This study is designed to fill in this information gap.
