    Incidence rate (number of participants with event per 100 participant year [PY]) was defined as the total number of participants with admissible events divided by the total (for all qualifying participants) time at risk for the cohort/treatment group of interest. Malignancy events, excluding NMSC were adjudicated by a steering committee. The risk period (RP) was the last contact date. The last contact date was the maximum of (AE start date, AE stop date, last study visit date, withdrawal date, telephone contact date). If a participant died, last contact date was the death date. First events were counted within the RP. If a participant did not have an event or had an event but outside the risk period, the participant was censored at the end of RP.

    MACE included the cardiovascular death, non-fatal myocardial infarction (MI) and non-fatal stroke of any classification, including reversible focal neurologic defects with imaging evidence of a new cerebral lesion consistent with ischemia or hemorrhage. Incidence rate was defined as the total number of participants with admissible events divided by the total (for all qualifying participants) time at risk for the cohort/treatment group of interest. The risk period (RP) was the minimum of last contact date or last study treatment dose date + 60 days.

    DAS28 is a measure of disease activity in participants with rheumatoid arthritis based on a 28-joint assessment.

Total DAS28-4 (CRP) score range: 0 to 9.4, higher score indicated more disease activity. DAS28-4 (CRP) <= 3.2 indicates low disease activity and > 3.2 to <=5.1 indicates moderate disease activity, >5.1 indicates high disease activity, and DAS28-4 (CRP) < 2.6 indicates remission.

Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE Safety Study Of Tofacitinib Versus Tumor Necrosis Factor (TNF) Inhibitor In Subjects With Rheumatoid Arthritis
Official Title  ICMJE PHASE 3B/4 RANDOMIZED SAFETY ENDPOINT STUDY OF 2 DOSES OF TOFACITINIB IN COMPARISON TO A TUMOR NECROSIS FACTOR (TNF) INHIBITOR IN SUBJECTS WITH RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS
Brief Summary This post-marketing study is designed to compare the safety of tofacitinib versus TNF inhibitor with respect to major cardiovascular adverse events and malignancies, excluding non-melanoma skin cancers when given to subjects with rheumatoid arthritis. Other safety events, including non-melanoma skin cancers, hepatic events, infections, and efficacy parameters will be collected and evaluated in the study.
