Reporting Groups
  Description
Etanercept + Methotrexate Participants received 50 mg etanercept twice weekly (BIW) for the first 12 weeks and then 50 mg etanercept once weekly (QW) for the second 12 weeks. Participants also received active methotrexate titrated as follows: 7.5 mg per week (3 capsules) for weeks 1 and 2, 10 mg per week (4 capsules) for weeks 3 and 4, and then up to 15 mg per week (6 capsules) or the maximum tolerated dose for the remainder of the 24-week treatment period.
Etanercept + Placebo Participants received 50 mg etanercept twice weekly (BIW) for the first 12 weeks and then 50 mg etanercept once weekly (QW) for the second 12 weeks. Participants also received oral placebo that was the same number of capsules per week as the methotrexate dosing regimen.
