Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Subjects With American College of Rheumatology (ACR) Criteria Improvement Consisting of 20%, 50%, and 70% (ACR20/50/70 Responders, Respectively) [ Time Frame: Every 4 weeks up to Week 24 and every 12 weeks thereafter until Study completion or discontinuation (final value) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Number of responders with ACR criteria improvement consisting of 20%, 50%, and 70% (ACR20/50/70, respectively) reduction in tender or swollen joint counts (TJC or SJC, respectively) and 20%, 50%, and 70% improvement, respectively, in 3 of the following 5 criteria: 1) physician's global assessment of disease activity (PGA), 2) subject's assessment of disease activity, 3) subject's assessment of pain, 4) subject's assessment of functional disability via a health assessment questionnaire (DI-HAQ), and 5) C-reactive protein (CRP) at each visit.

  • Mean Change From Baseline in Tender Joint Count (TJC, Max=68), a Component of the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) by Visit [ Time Frame: Every 4 weeks up to Week 24 and every 12 weeks thereafter until Study completion or discontinuation (final value) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

For M02-575 completers, the Baseline for all efficacy analyses was defined as the Week 0 [before dosing] of the M02-575 study; for the M02-575 rescue arm, the Baseline was defined as the Week 0 [before dosing] of the M03-651 study.

  • Mean Change From Baseline in Swollen Joint Count (SJC, Max=66), a Component of the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) by Visit [ Time Frame: Every 4 weeks up to Week 24 and every 12 weeks thereafter until Study completion or discontinuation (final value) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Mean change from Baseline in SJC (max=66) at each visit, a component of ACR. For M02-575 completers, the Baseline for all efficacy analyses was defined as the Week 0 (before dosing)] of the M02-575 study; for the M02-575 rescue arm, the baseline was defined as the Week 0 (before dosing) of the M03-651 study.

  • Mean Change From Baseline in Physician Global Assessment of Disease Activity (PGA), a Component of the ACR Criteria by Visit [ Time Frame: Every 4 weeks up to Week 24 and every 12 weeks thereafter until Study completion or discontinuation (final value). ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change from Baseline in PGA (a visual analog scale from 0-100 mm, with 0 being the absence of disease activity and 100 mm being very strong disease activity, a component of the ACR criteria by visit). For M02-575 completers, the Baseline for all efficacy analyses was defined as the Week 0 (before dosing) of the M02-575 study; for the M02-575 rescue arm, the Baseline was defined as the Week 0 (before dosing) of the M03-651 study.

  • Mean Change From Baseline in Subject's Global Assessment of Disease Activity Using a Visual Analog Scale, a Component of the ACR Criteria by Visit [ Time Frame: Every 4 weeks up to Week 24 and every 12 weeks thereafter until Study completion or discontinuation (final value). ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change from Baseline in Subject's Global Assessment of Disease Activity (a visual analog scale from 0-100 mm (0 being absence of disease activity and 100 being very strong disease activity), a component of the ACR criteria by visit). For M02-575 completers, the Baseline for all efficacy analyses was defined as the Week 0 (before dosing) of the M02-575 study; for the M02-575 rescue arm, the Baseline was defined as the Week 0 (before dosing) of the M03-651 study.

  • Mean Change From Baseline in Subject's Assessment of Pain Using a Visual Analog Scale, a Component of the ACR Criteria by Visit [ Time Frame: Every 4 weeks up to Week 24 and every 12 weeks thereafter until Study completion or discontinuation (final value). ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change from Baseline in subject's assessment of pain (a visual analog scale from 0-100 mm [0 being no pain and 100 being unbearable pain], a component of the ACR criteria by visit). For M02-575 completers, the Baseline for all efficacy analyses was defined as the Week 0 (before dosing) of the M02-575 study; for the M02-575 rescue arm, the Baseline was defined as the Week 0 (before dosing) of the M03-651 study.

  • Mean Change From Baseline in the Disability Index of the Health Assessment Questionaire (DI-HAQ, a Component of the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) Criteria by Visit [ Time Frame: Every 4 weeks up to Week 24 and every 12 weeks thereafter until Study completion or discontinuation (final value) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Mean change from Baseline in DI-HAQ overall score (includes 20 questions assessing physical function in 8 domains - dressing, rising, eating, walking, hygiene, reach, grip, and usual activities). Each question is on a scale of 0-3 mm to measure the ability to perform certain activities (0 = without any difficulty, 1 = with some difficulty, 2 = with much difficulty, and 3 = unable to do so), a component of the ACR criteria by visit. DI-HAQ is derived based on the mean of individual responses not the total of individual questions
