Further study details as provided by Amgen:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Proportion of subjects achieving a "good" or "moderate" DAS28 response (as defined by EULAR28 criteria) at Week 16.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Proportion of subjects who achieve ACR 20, 50, and 70 responses at Weeks 8 and 16.
  • Proportion of subjects who achieve good or moderate DAS28 response at Week 8 and the proportion who achieve remission (DAS28 less than 2.6) at Weeks 8 and 16
  • Absolute and percent changes from baseline in components of the ACR and DAS28 criteria (including HAQ) at Weeks 8 and 16.
  • Absolute changes from baseline in SF-36 and Valued Life Activities at Weeks 8 and 16
  • Subject incidence rate of SAEs over 16 weeks
