Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Diagnosis of RA for ≧6 months according to the revised 1987 ACR criteria for the classification of RA.
  • Adult patients, ≧20 years of age.
  • Receiving methotrexate at a dose of 6 to 8mg/week(oral)for ≧12 weeks, with a stable dose for the last 4 weeks before treatment.
  • Positive serum RF.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Rheumatic autoimmune disease other than RA, or Significant systemic involvement secondary to RA (including but not limited to vasculitis, pulmonary fibrosis, or Felty's syndrome).Patients with secondary Sjögren's syndrome or secondary limited cutaneous vasculitis with RA are eligible.
