    ACR20 response: greater than or equal to (>=) 20 percent (%) improvement in tender joint count (TJC); >= 20% improvement in swollen joint count (SJC); and >= 20% improvement in at least 3 of 5 remaining ACR core measures: participant assessment of pain; participant global assessment of disease activity; physician global assessment of disease activity; self-assessed disability (disability index of the Health Assessment Questionnaire [HAQ]); and C-Reactive Protein (CRP). For comparison of CP-690,550 with placebo, placebo sequences were combined into single reporting group for Month 6 analysis.

Each item scored on 4-point scale from 0-3:0=no difficulty;1=some difficulty;2=much difficulty;3=unable to do. Overall score was computed as sum of domain scores and divided by number of domains answered. Total possible score range 0-3:0=least difficulty and 3=extreme difficulty. For comparison of CP-690,550 with placebo, placebo sequences were combined into single reporting group for Month 3 analysis.

    DAS28-4 (ESR) was calculated from SJC and TJC using 28 joints count, erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) (millimeters/hour[mm/hour]) and patient's global assessment (PtGA) of disease activity(participant rated arthritis activity assessment). Total score range:0-9.4, higher score=more disease activity.
