Pre-Assignment Details
Significant events and approaches for the overall study following participant enrollment, but prior to group assignment
The arm Other anti-TNF agent consisting of participants treated with adalimumab, etanercept and infliximab was divided into individual treatment groups only for the purpose of Participant flow reporting. All other analyses were performed in Rituximab versus Other anti-TNF agent.

Reporting Groups
  Description
Rituximab Participants who have inadequate response or were intolerant to the first anti-tumor necrosis factor (anti-TNF) agent in rheumatoid arthritis (RA), receiving rituximab as per physician’s discretion for RA treatment were observed for 12 months.
Other Anti-TNF Agent: Adalimumab Participants who have inadequate response or were intolerant to the first anti-TNF agent in RA, receiving adalimumab as per physician’s discretion for RA treatment were observed for 12 months.
Other Anti-TNF Agent: Etanercept Participants who have inadequate response or were intolerant to the first anti-TNF agent in RA, receiving etanercept as per physician’s discretion for RA treatment were observed for 12 months.
Other Anti-TNF Agent: Infliximab Participants who have inadequate response or were intolerant to the first anti-TNF agent in RA, receiving infliximab as per physician’s discretion for RA treatment were observed for 12 months.

  Baseline Characteristics

Population Description
Explanation of how the number of participants for analysis was determined. Includes whether analysis was per protocol, intention to treat, or another method. Also provides relevant details such as imputation technique, as appropriate.
The intent to treat (ITT) set included participants who offered end-point results among the participants who received the study drugs after enrollment and met all inclusion/exclusion criteria.

Reporting Groups
  Description
Rituximab Participants who have inadequate response or were intolerant to the first anti-tumor necrosis factor (anti-TNF) agent in rheumatoid arthritis (RA), receiving rituximab as per physician’s discretion for RA treatment were observed for 12 months.
Other Anti-TNF Agent Participants who have inadequate response or were intolerant to the first anti-TNF agent in RA, receiving other anti-TNF agent (adalimumab, etanercept or infliximab) as per physician’s discretion for RA treatment were observed for 12 months.
