Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change From Baseline in Cartilage Thickness of the cMTFC as Assessed by qMRI on the Target Knee at Week 52 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 52 ]
    Reduction in cartilage loss was assessed by cartilage thickness as measured in the medial cMTFC of the target knee using qMRI.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Participants Who Were Osteoarthritis (OA) Structural Progressors Based on Cartilage Thickness in the cMTFC Assessed by qMRI on the Target Knee [ Time Frame: Week 52 ]
    A "structural progressor" was defined as a participant who had an 8% cartilage loss in cMTFC. Number of participants who met the criteria of "structural progressor" at Week 52 are provided.

  2. Change From Baseline in Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC) Total Score and Subscales Scores for Pain, Function, and Stiffness at Week 52 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 52 ]
    Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index is a questionnaire designed to assess health status and health outcomes in participants with OA of the knee. The questionnaire contains 24 questions targeting areas of pain, stiffness, and physical function. Pain subscale includes 5 items rated on a Likert scale of 0 (none) to 4 (extreme) with a total range of 0-20 with higher scores indicating worse symptoms and function. Stiffness subscale includes 2 items rated on a Likert scale of 0 (none) to 4 (extreme) with a total range of 0-8 with higher scores indicating worse symptoms and function. Physical function subscale includes 17 items rated on a Likert scale of 0 (none) to 4 (extreme) with a total range of 0-68 with higher scores indicating worse symptoms and function. The total score is the sum of all subscales (range: 0 to 96) with higher scores indicating worse symptoms and function.

  3. Change From Baseline in Pain Assessment in the Target Knee as Measured by Visual Analog Scale (VAS) at Week 52 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 52 ]
    The participant was asked "how would you rate the pain felt in the selected knee within the last 48 hours?". The participants rated the pain by marking the level of pain on a 100-mm VAS, with 0 being no pain and 100 being extreme pain. Higher score indicated higher pain intensity.

  4. Change From Baseline in Patient Global Assessment (PGA) of Disease Activity as Measured by VAS at Week 52 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 52 ]
    The participant was asked "Considering all the ways in which your knee osteoarthritis affects you, please rate on this 100 mm scale how well you are doing today". The participants rated the disease activity by marking on a 100-mm VAS, with 0 being no pain and 100 being extreme pain. Higher score indicated higher disease activity.

  5. Number of Participants Who Were Responders Based on the Outcome Measures in Rheumatology - Osteoarthritis Research Society International (OMERACT-OARSI) Criteria [ Time Frame: Week 52 ]

    OMERACT-OARSI criteria involves improvement based on WOMAC pain and function subscales and PGA. The responders according to OMERACT-OARSI criteria were participants who had:

    • A high improvement in pain or in function ≥ 50% and absolute change ≥ 20, OR
    • Improvement in at least 2 of the 3 following:

      • Pain ≥ 20% and absolute change ≥ 10
      • Function ≥ 20% and absolute change ≥ 10
      • Patient's global assessment ≥ 20% and absolute change ≥ 10.

    WOMAC pain subscale score: range of 0 to 20, higher scores indicating more pain,

    WOMAC physical function subscale score: range of 0 to 68, higher scores indicating worse physical function),

    PGA: The participant was asked "Considering all the ways in which your knee osteoarthritis affects you, please rate on this 100 mm scale how well you are doing today". The participants rated disease activity by marking on a 100-mm VAS, with 0 being no pain and 100 being extreme pain. Higher score indicated higher disease activity.


  6. Change From Baseline in Cartilage Thickness of the Total Tibiofemoral Compartment (tTFC) of the Target Knee by qMRI at Week 52 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 52 ]
    Reduction of cartilage loss was measured by cartilage thickness of the tTFC of the target knee using qMRI.

  7. Change From Baseline in Bone Area of the Medial Femoral Condyle Surface of the Target Knee by qMRI at Week 28 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 28 ]
  8. Change From Baseline in Bone Area of the Medial Femoral Condyle Surface of the Target Knee by qMRI at Week 52 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 52 ]
  9. Change From Baseline in Joint Space Width (JSW) of the Target Knee at Week 52 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 52 ]
    The JSW is the space measured between the 2 bones in the knee joint and this is assessed by x-ray.

  10. Number of Participants Who Have Used at Least 1 Systemic Analgesic During the Study [ Time Frame: Baseline up to Week 52 ]
    Systemic analgesics included antiinflammatory and antirheumatic products; analgesics; antidiarrheals, intestinal, antiinflammatory/antiinfective agents; and drugs for functional gastrointestinal disorders.

  11. Plasma Concentrations of GLPG1972 [ Time Frame: Pre-dose at Weeks 4, 12, and 52; Pre-dose and one post-dose sample (2-4 hours interval) at Week 28; one post dose sample (interval 4-8 hours) at Week 40 ]
  12. Number of Participants With Treatment-emergent Adverse Event (TEAE) [ Time Frame: Baseline up to 2-weeks after last dose of IMP (up to Week 54) ]

    Treatment-emergent adverse events were defined as all adverse events:

    • which occurred between the first IMP intake date (included) and the last visit of the participant, or
    • which occur before the first IMP intake date and which worsen (in terms of intensity) or become serious according to the investigator opinion between the first IMP intake date (included) and the last visit of the participant.

    Number of participants with at least 1 treatment-emergent adverse event (serious or non-serious) are reported.
