1.Primary Outcome
Title Mean Change in Synovitis Measured by B-modal Ultrasonography Assessment Score After 13 Weeks of Treatment With Adalimumab.
Hide Description Synovitis was scored on a scale of 0 to 3 (0=none, 1=minor, 2=moderate, and 3=major presence). The sum of the scores of all 12 joints (elbow, wrist, second metacarpal (MCP), third MCP, knee and ankle) on both left and right sides is the ultrasonography assessment score, with a score range of 0-36.

4.Secondary Outcome
Title Percentage of Participants Who Achieved ≥ 20% Improvement in Both Tender Joint Count (TJC) and Swollen Joint Count (SJC)
Hide Description The American College of Rheumatology TJC and SJC was administered at each study visit. Participants were evaluated for tenderness and pain in 66 different joints when in motion (TJC), and 68 different joints were evaluated for swelling (SJC).

5.Secondary Outcome
Title Mean Change in Health Assessment Questionnaire (HAQ) Score
Hide Description The Health Assessment Questionnaire - Disability Index (HAQ-DI) is a participant-reported questionnaire specific for rheumatoid arthritis. It consists of 20 questions referring to eight domains: dressing/grooming, arising, eating, walking, hygiene, reach, grip, and daily activities. Participants assessed their ability to do each task over the past week using the following response categories: without any difficulty (0); with some difficulty (1); with much difficulty (2); and unable to do (3). Scores on each task were summed and averaged to provide an overall score ranging from 0 to 3, where zero represents no disability and three very severe, high-dependency disability. The minimal clinically important difference (MCID) defined for the HAQ-DI is ≥0.22. HAQ remission indicating normal physical function is defined by HAQ-DI < 0.5. Negative mean changes from Baseline in the overall score indicate improvement. Due to an error, HAQ data was not collected at 13 weeks.

Certain Agreements
Principal Investigators are NOT employed by the organization sponsoring the study.
There IS an agreement between Principal Investigators and the Sponsor (or its agents) that restricts the PI's rights to discuss or publish trial results after the trial is completed.
AbbVie requests that any investigator or institution that plans on presenting/publishing results disclosure, provide written notification of their request 60 days prior to their presentation/publication. AbbVie requests that no presentation/publication will be instituted until 12 months after a study is completed, or after the first presentation/publication whichever occurs first. A delay may be proposed of a presentation/publication if AbbVie needs to secure patent or proprietary protection.
