Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Incidence of Tuberculosis infection or reactivation during the study [ Time Frame: From Baseline to Week 156 (Visit 7) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The incidence of Tuberculosis (TB) infection or reactivation is assessed by routine TB diagnostic tests (Chest X-ray, skin test, Interferon-γ-release assays recognizing antigens representing 2 Mycobacterium tuberculosis proteins (preferably both blood and skin tests), ESAT-6 and CFP-10)


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change from Baseline in Disease Activity Score [Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate] (DAS28 [ESR]) in Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) patients at Week 26 [ Time Frame: From Baseline to Week 26 (Visit 2) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    DAS28[ESR] is calculated using the Tender Joint Count (TJC), Swollen Joint Count (SJC) Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR in mm/hour), and the Patient's Global Assessment of Disease Activity - Visual Analog Scale (VAS in mm) using the following formula: 0.56 x √(TJC) + 0.28 x √(SJC) + 0.70 x lognat (ESR) + 0.014 x Global Assessment of Arthritis where 28 joints are examined and a lower score indicates less disease activity.

  • Change from Baseline in Disease Activity Score [Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate] (DAS28 [ESR]) in Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) patients at Week 52 [ Time Frame: From Baseline to Week 52 (Visit 3) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    DAS28[ESR] is calculated using the Tender Joint Count (TJC), Swollen Joint Count (SJC) Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR in mm/hour), and the Patient's Global Assessment of Disease Activity - Visual Analog Scale (VAS in mm) using the following formula: 0.56 x √(TJC) + 0.28 x √(SJC) + 0.70 x lognat (ESR) + 0.014 x Global Assessment of Arthritis where 28 joints are examined and a lower score indicates less disease activity.

  • Change from Baseline in Disease Activity Score [Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate] (DAS28 [ESR]) in Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) patients at Week 78 [ Time Frame: From Baseline to Week 78 (Visit 4) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    DAS28[ESR] is calculated using the Tender Joint Count (TJC), Swollen Joint Count (SJC) Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR in mm/hour), and the Patient's Global Assessment of Disease Activity - Visual Analog Scale (VAS in mm) using the following formula: 0.56 x √(TJC) + 0.28 x √(SJC) + 0.70 x lognat (ESR) + 0.014 x Global Assessment of Arthritis where 28 joints are examined and a lower score indicates less disease activity.

  • Change from Baseline in Disease Activity Score [Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate] (DAS28 [ESR]) in Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) patients at Week 104 [ Time Frame: From Baseline to Week 104 (Visit 5) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    DAS28[ESR] is calculated using the Tender Joint Count (TJC), Swollen Joint Count (SJC) Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR in mm/hour), and the Patient's Global Assessment of Disease Activity - Visual Analog Scale (VAS in mm) using the following formula: 0.56 x √(TJC) + 0.28 x √(SJC) + 0.70 x lognat (ESR) + 0.014 x Global Assessment of Arthritis where 28 joints are examined and a lower score indicates less disease activity.

  • Change from Baseline in Disease Activity Score [Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate] (DAS28 [ESR]) in Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) patients at Week 130 [ Time Frame: From Baseline to Week 130 (Visit 6) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    DAS28[ESR] is calculated using the Tender Joint Count (TJC), Swollen Joint Count (SJC) Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR in mm/hour), and the Patient's Global Assessment of Disease Activity - Visual Analog Scale (VAS in mm) using the following formula: 0.56 x √(TJC) + 0.28 x √(SJC) + 0.70 x lognat (ESR) + 0.014 x Global Assessment of Arthritis where 28 joints are examined and a lower score indicates less disease activity.

  • Change from Baseline in Disease Activity Score [Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate] (DAS28 [ESR]) in Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) patients at Week 156 [ Time Frame: From Baseline to Week 156 (Visit 7) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    DAS28[ESR] is calculated using the Tender Joint Count (TJC), Swollen Joint Count (SJC) Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR in mm/hour), and the Patient's Global Assessment of Disease Activity - Visual Analog Scale (VAS in mm) using the following formula: 0.56 x √(TJC) + 0.28 x √(SJC) + 0.70 x lognat (ESR) + 0.014 x Global Assessment of Arthritis where 28 joints are examined and a lower score indicates less disease activity.

  • Incidence of Adverse Events during the study [ Time Frame: From Baseline to Week 156 (Visit 7) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    An Adverse Event (AE) is any untoward medical occurrence in a patient or clinical investigation patient administered a pharmaceutical product which does not necessarily have a causal relationship with this treatment. An AE can therefore be any unfavorable and unintended sign (including an abnormal laboratory finding), symptom, or disease temporally associated with the use of a medicinal (investigational) product, whether or not related to the medicinal (investigational) product.
