This is a non-interventional, observational study in which HUMIRA (adalimumab) is prescribed in the usual manner in accordance with the terms of the local marketing authorisation with regards to dose, population and indication. No data currently exist that characterise patient types and adalimumab administration within the Russian population. Further, it is important to characterise the compliance, acceptability of patient self-injection, tolerability and safety profile of this newly introduced therapy option with the routine clinical care.
Primary objective The primary objective of this post-marketing observational study is to obtain data on the characteristics (patient age/gender; disease type, severity and duration; disease specific treatment history, including DMARDs/BDMARDs; current concomitant medications; other relevant medical history, including TB (prior diagnosis/effectiveness of treatment; screening and prophylaxis history) of patients prescribed HUMIRA (adalimumab) for RA/AS/PsA as part of routine clinical care.

Arthritis in children, with onset before 16 years of age. The terms juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA) and juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) refer to classification systems for chronic arthritis in children. Only one subtype of juvenile arthritis (polyarticular-onset, rheumatoid factor-positive) clinically resembles adult rheumatoid arthritis and is considered its childhood equivalent.
Rheumatoid arthritis of children occurring in three major subtypes defined by the symptoms present during the first six months following onset: systemic-onset (Still's Disease, Juvenile-Onset), polyarticular-onset, and pauciarticular-onset. Adult-onset cases of Still's disease (STILL'S DISEASE, ADULT-ONSET) are also known. Only one subtype of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (polyarticular-onset, rheumatoid factor-positive) clinically resembles adult rheumatoid arthritis and is considered its childhood equivalent.
A variable mixture of the mono- and disodium salts of gold thiomalic acid used mainly for its anti-inflammatory action in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. It is most effective in active progressive rheumatoid arthritis and of little or no value in the presence of extensive deformities or in the treatment of other forms of arthritis.
Systemic-onset rheumatoid arthritis in adults. It differs from classical rheumatoid arthritis in that it is more often marked by acute febrile onset, and generalized lymphadenopathy and hepatosplenomegaly are more prominent.
