Detailed Description:

The objectives of the study are to evaluate the efficacy and safety of ENIA11 in combination with methotrexate versus methotrexate alone in patients with rheumatoid arthritis.

This is a multi-center, double-blind, randomized, parallel-group, placebo-controlled study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of ENIA11 in combination with methotrexate versus methotrexate alone in patients with rheumatoid arthritis.

Subject participation duration: A total of 28 weeks, including: 2 weeks of screening, 24 weeks of treatment and 2 weeks of follow-up

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   20 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
