Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to determine how safe and effective the study drug Olokizumab is, in patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) who are already receiving, but not fully responding to treatment with an existing medication called a tumour necrosis factor alpha inhibitor

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Rheumatoid Arthritis Drug: Olokizumab q4w Drug: Olokizumab q2w Drug: Placebo q2w Phase 3

Detailed Description:
The goal of this Phase III study is to assess the safety, tolerability, and efficacy of OKZ in subjects with moderately to severely active RA who have responded inadequately to TNFi therapy. The primary endpoint of the trial is at Week 12. Olokizumab is expected to reduce the disease activity and improve physical function. The study is expected to provide safety information in a large group of subjects over at least a 24 week period.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 350 participants

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Arm 1: Olokizumab q4w + Methotrexate
Olokizumab 64 mg Subcutaneous q4w + Methotrexate (oral)
Drug: Olokizumab q4w
Experimental: Arm 2: Olokizumab q2w + Methotrexate
Olokizumab 64 mg Subcutaneous q2w + Methotrexate (oral)
Drug: Olokizumab q2w
Placebo Comparator: Arm 3: Placebo q2w + Methotrexate
Placebo Subcutaneous q2w + Methotrexate (oral)
Drug: Placebo q2w



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. ACR20 response [ Time Frame: at Week 12 ]
    A responder is defined as any subject satisfying ACR20 criteria and remaining on randomized treatment and in the study at Week 12. This endpoint will serve to demonstrate that the efficacy of OKZ is superior to placebo.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Difference between OKZ and placebo in the percentage of subjects achieving low disease activity [ Time Frame: at Week 12 ]
    Defined as DAS28 (CRP) <3.2, and remaining on randomized treatment and in the study at Week 12.

  2. Difference between OKZ and placebo in the improvement of physical ability [ Time Frame: at Week 12 ]
    As measured by the Health Assessment Questionnaire Disability Index (HAQ DI)

  3. ACR50 response [ Time Frame: at Week 12 ]
    Difference between OKZ and placebo in the percentage of subjects achieving an ACR50 response and remaining on randomized treatment and in the study at Week 12.

  4. Simplified Disease Activity Index (SDAI) ≤3.3 (remission) [ Time Frame: at Week 12 ]
    Difference between OKZ and placebo in the percentage of subjects with Simplified Disease Activity Index (SDAI) ≤3.3 (remission) and remaining on randomized treatment and in the study at Week 12.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

Subjects may be enrolled in the study only if they meet all of the following criteria.

  • Subjects willing and able to sign informed consent
  • Subjects must have a diagnosis of adult onset RA classified by ACR/EULAR 2010 revised classification criteria for RA for at least 24 weeks prior to Screening.
  • Treatment with MTX for at least 12 weeks prior to Screening at a dose of 15 to 25 mg/week (or ≥10 mg/week if there is documented intolerance to higher doses)

    • The dose and means of administering MTX must have been stable for at least 6 weeks prior to Screening.
  • Subjects must be willing to take folic acid or equivalent throughout the study.
  • Subjects must have moderately to severely active RA disease as defined by all of the following:

    • ≥6 tender joints (68 joint count) at Screening and baseline; and
    • ≥6 swollen joints (66 joint count) at Screening and baseline; and
    • CRP above ULN at Screening based on the central laboratory results.
  • Subjects must have a documented inadequate response to treatment (i.e., TNFi failure) with ≥1 licensed TNFi following at least 12 weeks of therapy with that agent.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Diagnosis of any other inflammatory arthritis or systemic rheumatic disease (e.g., gout, psoriatic or reactive arthritis, Crohn's disease, Lyme disease, juvenile idiopathic arthritis, or systemic lupus erythematosus)
  • Prior exposure to any licensed or investigational compound directly or indirectly targeting IL 6 or IL 6R (including tofacitinib or other Janus kinases and spleen tyrosine kinase [SYK] inhibitors)
  • Prior treatment with cell depleting therapies including anti CD20 or investigational agents (e.g., CAMPATH, anti CD4, anti CD5, anti CD3, and anti CD19) with the exception of rituximab, which is allowed if it was discontinued at least 24 weeks prior to baseline (rituximab should not be discontinued to facilitate a subject's participation in the study, but should instead have been previously discontinued as part of a subject's medical management of RA).
  • Prior use of bDMARDs, within the following windows prior to baseline (bDMARDs should not be discontinued to facilitate a subject's participation in the study, but should instead have been previously discontinued as part of a subject's medical management of RA):

    1. 4 weeks for etanercept and anakinra

  • Prior history of no response to hydroxychloroquine and sulfasalazine

  • Abnormal laboratory values
  • Subjects with concurrent acute or chronic viral Hepatitis B or C infection
  • Subjects with HIV infection

    1. Current active TB disease or a history of active TB disease.
    2. Close contact with an individual with active TB within 1.5yrs prior to Screening
