Brief Summary:
This study will evaluate the optimal dose of tofacitinib needed to achieve low disease activity (LDA) or clinical remission as measured by the CDAI score. Once LDA or clinical remission has been achieved, the structural benefit in reducing erosions, synovitis and bone edema as measured by low field MRI will be determined at the same time period by the use of the OMERACT/RAMRIS scoring system

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Rheumatoid Arthritis Drug: tofacitinib Phase 3

Detailed Description:

This study will evaluate the optimal dose of tofacitinib needed to achieve low disease activity (LDA) or clinical remission as measured by the CDAI score. Once LDA or clinical remission has been achieved, the structural benefit in reducing erosions, synovitis and bone edema as measured by low field MRI will be determined at the same time period by the use of the OMERACT/RAMRIS scoring system and correlated to the clinical findings. The target for each patient will be determined at the time of study entry depending on the degree of disease activity of the individual patient. This is based on the understanding that LDA is an acceptable goal in certain patients with long standing disease or high disease activity. If the patient reaches LDA while taking tofacitinib at a 5 mg b.i.d. dose, the patient will be given the opportunity to have the dose increased to 10 mg b.i.d. in the hopes of reaching clinical remission.

There are two treat to target goals: Clinical Remission as defined by a CDAI score of <2.8 for those patients who entered the study with a CDAI score of <22 and Low Disease Activity (LDA) as defined by a CDAI score of <10 for those who entered the study with a CDAI score of > 22.

Arm Intervention/treatment
open label
open label use of tofacitinib at either 5 mg bid or 10 mg bid delending on treat to target goal
Drug: tofacitinib
oral tofacitinib will be taken 2 times daily




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Record the optimal dose of tofacitinib needed to achieve LDA or clinical remission as measured by CDAI score [ Time Frame: one year ]
    the daily dosed used in patients to achieve LDA


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. low -field (0.3T) MRI will be used to measure the reduction of synovitis and bone edema [ Time Frame: one year ]
    was synovitis, bone edema and erosion reduced

  2. correlation of the structural and clinical responses performed the structural outcomes as measured by MERERACT and correlate them to the clinical responses and dose adjustments made during the course of the study [ Time Frame: one year ]
    was there a correlation is structural and clinical response

  3. record the number of patients who reach low disease activity and a measurable structural response [ Time Frame: one year ]
    the number of patient who reached LDA and a measurable structural change

  4. record the number of patients in which structural response occurred without clinical response [ Time Frame: one year ]
    number of patients who had a structural response but no clinical response

  5. record the number of patients who required an increase in the dose of tofacitinib due to lack of clinical response from Baseline as measured by CDAI score [ Time Frame: one year ]
    number of patients who had dose escalated to 10 mg bid

  6. record the change in CDAI score for all patients from Baseline through the last dose of the initial dose (5 mg b.i.d) of tofacitinib [ Time Frame: one year ]
    record CDAI scores from Baseline to Week 52

  7. record the change in CDAI score from the step up period ( 10 mg b.i.d) to the end of the dosing period [ Time Frame: one year ]
    record CDAI score at dose 10 mg bid

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   Yes
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Patient must be at least 18 years old at the screening visit
  2. Patient must be able to understand the information provided to them and give written Informed Consent
  3. Female subjects of childbearing potential must test negative for pregnancy
  4. Male and female subjects of childbearing potential must agree to use two highly effective methods of contraception throughout the study and for at least 3 months after the last dose of tofacitinib.
  5. Female patients who are not of childbearing potential must either be postmenopausal for at least 12 months or have undergone a documented hysterectomy and/or bilateral oophorectomy.
  6. Patients can be naïve to biologic therapy or have had exposure to TNF or biologic therapy (see appropriate wash out schedule) and be experiencing at least a moderate disease activity score as determined by a CDAI of > 10 at Screening despite currently receiving Methotrexate therapy at a dose of 10-25 mg/weekly for at least 12 weeks and at a stable dose for the past 4 weeks.
  7. Patients on prednisone must be receiving a daily dose of < 10 mg.
  8. Subjects must screen negative for active tuberculosis (TB) by either a PPD or a QuantiFERON Gold test (unless previously performed and documented within 3 months prior to screening). If patient tests positive for latent TB at screening, the chest X-ray at Screening must be negative for active TB and the patient must be started on ( or have completed) an adequate course of therapy for latent tuberculosis at the Baseline visit. Patient must complete the entire 9 month course of treatment for latent TB.
  9. Chest radiograph taken at screening (unless taken and documented within 3 months prior to screening) must be negative for active TB and have non clinically significant medical findings.
  10. Patients must be able and willing to comply with the requirements of the study protocol

Exclusion Criteria:

  5. Patients with a history of acute or chronic viral hepatitis B or C or those who test positive at screening.
