Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Double Blind Phase: Change From Randomization in Disease Activity Score in 28 Joints Using 4 Variables (DAS28-4) (Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate [ESR]) at Week 48 [ Time Frame: Randomization (last non-missing measurement on or prior to the first dosing date in DB phase at Week 24), Week 48 ]
    DAS28 is a measure of disease activity in participants with rheumatoid arthritis. DAS28-4 (ESR) was calculated from swollen joint count (SJC) and tender/painful joint count (TJC) using 28 joints count, ESR (millimeters per hour [mm/hr]) and participant global assessment of arthritis (PtGA) on a 100 millimeter (mm) visual analog scale (VAS: scores ranging from 0 mm [very well] to 100 mm [worst], higher scores indicate worse health condition). Total DAS28-4 (ESR) score range: 0 (none) to 9.4 (extreme disease activity), higher score indicated more disease activity. DAS28-4 (ESR) less than or equal to (<=) 3.2 implied low disease activity and greater than (>) 3.2 to <=5.1 implied moderate disease activity, >5.1 implied high disease activity, and DAS28-4 (ESR) less than (<) 2.6 implied remission.

    The FACIT-Fatigue scale was a participant completed questionnaire consisted of 13 items that assessed fatigue. Each item was scored on a scale of 0 (maximum fatigue) to 4 (no fatigue), higher scores indicate less fatigue. Total FACIT-fatigue score was obtained by addition of scores from 13 items, giving a possible overall range from 0 (maximum fatigue) to 52 (no fatigue). Higher FACIT-fatigue scores indicated lower level of fatigue, better participant status.
