  1. Includes patients who completed treatment with adalimumab (ADA) 40 mg every 2 weeks or tofacitinib 10 mg twice daily in the blinded study (or discontinued treatment for reasons other than a tofacitinib-related serious adverse event (AE)) and then enrolled in the extension study and switched treatment with minimal washout (≤2 weeks after their last dose of study drug in the blinded study). aOne patient committed suicide 1 day after the first tofacitinib dose in the extension study (it is unknown whether the patient took the study drug on this day). One patient died due to lung malignancy. DC discontinuation, RA rheumatoid arthritis
