SRMs: REFLEX: DAS28 = 1.04, CDAI = 0.92, and RAPID3 = 0.83; DANCER: DAS28 = 0.77, CDAI = 0.66, and RAPID3 = 0.6. Kruskal-Wallis values compare the changes from baseline to the last observation on or before week 24 between rituximab and placebo treatment. These -values were not adjusted for multiplicity. CRP: C-reactive protein; DOCGL: assessor global; ESR: erythrocyte sedimentation rate; FN: physical function; PAIN: pain; PATGL: patient global estimate; SJC: swollen joint count; TJC: tender joint count.
