Adverse effects collection   Collection throughout the study  
  1. a Inclusion: The inclusion visit should be done in 2–3 weeks
  2. b Information and informed consent: The patient will sign informed consent for the main study and additional consent (optional) if they accept 6-month and 1-year inclusion samples, which will be retained for the creation of biobank
  3. c Biomarkers: A blood sample will be taken for the determination of SinnoTest® biomarkers in the intervention arm patients
  4. d Patient booklet: The rheumatologist or CRA investigator will deliver the booklet to the patient at the inclusion visit. The patient brings the notebook during each follow-up visit and will carry it with him after the visit. At the end of the follow-up, he will return his completed patient booklet to the CRA / TEC of the Investigator Center by mail using the envelope provided with the notebook
  5. e Administration/dispensation of biotherapy: Patients in the control group will receive their biotherapy prescription in current practice. For patients in the intervention group, the rheumatologist will prescribe the biotherapy selected by SinnoTest®. The results of the pregnancy test should be negative
  6. f Biobank: A blood test will be carried out in all included patients who signed the additional consent for the creation of a biobank
