Primary Outcome Measures:
  • ACR20 Responses at Week 24 [ Time Frame: Week 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Achieving ACR20 means 20% or greater improvement in the number of tender joints, a 20% or more improvement in the number of swollen joints and a 20% or greater improvement in at least three of the five remaining core set measures: Patient's and physician's global assessments, Patient's assessment of pain, disability index based on the Health Assessment Questionnaire and C-reactive Protein.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • ACR 20 Responses at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Achieving ACR20 means 20% or greater improvement in the number of tender joints, a 20% or more improvement in the number of swollen joints and a 20% or greater improvement in at least three of the five remaining core set measures: Patient's and physician's global assessments, Patient's assessment of pain, disability index based on the Health Assessment Questionnaire and C-reactive Protein.

  • ACR50 Responses at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Achieving ACR50 means 50% or greater improvement in the number of tender joints, a 50% or more improvement in the number of swollen joints and a 50% or greater improvement in at least three of the five remaining core set measures: Patient's and physician's global assessments, Patient's assessment of pain, disability index based on the Health Assessment Questionnaire and C-reactive Protein.

  • ACR70 Responses at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Week12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Achieving ACR70 means 70% or greater improvement in the number of tender joints, a 70% or more improvement in the number of swollen joints and a 70% or greater improvement in at least three of the five remaining core set measures: Patient's and physician's global assessments, Patient's assessment of pain, disability index based on the Health Assessment Questionnaire and C-reactive Protein.

  • ACR50 Responses at Week 24 [ Time Frame: Week 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • ACR70 Responses at Week24 [ Time Frame: Week 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change From Baseline in Health Assessment Questionnaire-Disability Index (HAQ-DI) [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Range of HAQ-DI score: 0-3 This outcome measures changes of HAQ-DI score at Week 24 from Baseline. Lower score of HAQ-DI represents a better outcome.
