This prospective, non-interventional research registry is designed to study the comparative effectiveness and comparative safety of approved treatments for RA in a cohort of patients cared for by rheumatologists across North America. Secondary objectives include analyzing the epidemiology and natural history of the disease, its comorbidities, and current treatment practices.
Accepts Healthy Volunteers
Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms
An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.
An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.
Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.

This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.
Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.
Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.
Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.
Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.
The sponsor is the organization or person who oversees the clinical study and is responsible for analyzing the study data.

The primary objective for this registry is to systematically collect and document use patterns, effectiveness, and safety of DMARDs (Disease Modifying Anti-Rheumatic Drugs), biologic agents, and any other treatments currently used in the management of RA. The design is a prospective, non-interventional registry for patients with RA under the care of a rheumatologist. Longitudinal data are collected from both patients and their treating rheumatology providers during routine clinical encounters using a structured and standardized data collection method. The scope of data collection includes but is not limited to patient demographics, disease duration, medical history (including all prior and current treatments for RA), smoking status, alcohol use, disease activity and severity, pain, as well as other clinician- and patient-reported outcomes, comorbidities and adverse events, infections, hospitalizations, and other targeted safety outcomes. After the enrollment visit, RA patients and physicians will complete the follow-up questionnaires during regularly scheduled clinical encounters. The goal is to collect data from patients and providers at six month intervals. Adverse events may be volunteered spontaneously by the subject, or be discovered as a result of general questioning by the Investigator. During all Corrona related visits with the Investigator, subjects will be questioned regarding the occurrence of adverse events.
