 (submitted: August 19, 2015)
Percentage of Subjects in Sustained Remission at Week 52 [ Time Frame: Week 52 ]
Sustained remission is defined as a Disease Activity Score [Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate] (DAS28[ESR]) < 2.6 at both Weeks 40 and 52. DAS28[ESR] is calculated using the Tender Joint Count (TJC), Swollen Joint Count (SJC) Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR in mm/hour), and the Patient's Global Assessment of Disease Activity - Visual Analog Scale (PtGADA-VAS in mm) using the following formula: 0.56 x √(TJC) + 0.28 x √(SJC) + 0.70 x lognat (ESR) + 0.014 x PtGADA, where 28 joints are examined and a lower score indicates less disease activity.

    Van der Heijde modified Total Sharp Score (mTSS) is a methodology to assess the degree of joint damage by quantifying the extent of bone erosions and joint space narrowing for 44 and 42 joints, respectively. The mTSS ranges from 0 to 448, with higher scores representing greater damage.
  • Percentage of Subjects With Radiographic Non-progression From Baseline to Week 52 [ Time Frame: From Baseline (Week 0) to Week 52 ]

Scores 1 to 5 may have included combinations of discrete erosion(s) and/or large erosions. Erosions for each foot joint were scored from 0 to 10, with 0 indicating no erosions. The maximum possible erosion score for all 32-hand joints was 160. The maximum possible erosion score for all 12 feet joints was 120. Thus, the maximum possible total erosion score for hands and feet was 280.
