A Study to Evaluate the Safety and Efficacy of ASP015K in Moderate to Severe Rheumatoid Arthritis

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details.
 
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT01565655

Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of ASP015K in moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis (RA) subjects

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Arthritis, Rheumatoid Drug: peficitinib Drug: Placebo Phase 2

Detailed Description:
Subjects will take ASP015K or matching placebo orally with food for 12 weeks after randomization. Potential subjects who have previously used disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs) and/or biologic agents may be eligible to participate after completing a washout period. Subjects who complete the 12-week dosing period in this study may be eligible to participate in a long-term, open-label Extension Study.
