Current Primary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: February 3, 2020)
Change in Modified Rodnan Skin Score (mRSS) During Double-blind Period [ Time Frame: From baseline to week 48 ]
The efficacy of TCZ vs placebo is evaluated in terms of in mean change in mRSS. Skin thickness will be assessed by palpation and rated using an mRSS that ranges from 0 (normal) to 3 (severe skin thickening) across 17 different body sites. The total score is the sum of the individual skin scores from all of these sites and ranges from 0 to 51 units.

Change in mRSS [ Time Frame: From Baseline to Week 48 of double-blind treatment ]
Change History
Current Secondary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: February 3, 2020)
  • Percentage of Participants With Greater Than or Equal to (>/=) 20%, 40%, or 60% Improvement in mRSS During Double-blind Period [ Time Frame: From Baseline to Week 48 ]
    The proportion of participants with threshold improvements in mRSS at Week 48 relative to baseline.
  • Change From Baseline in Percent Predicted FVC (ppFVC) During Double-blind Period [ Time Frame: Baseline to week 48 ]
    FVC is pulmonary function test and will be conducted as per the study Pulmonary Function Manual, which is based on the American Thoracic Society/European Respiratory Society (ATS/ERS) Consensus Statement. FVC is the maximum amount of air exhaled from the lungs after taking the deepest breath possible. Patients perform three to eight exhalations into a spirometer with the highest value recorded.
  • Change in Forced Vital Capacity (FVC) During Double-blind Period [ Time Frame: From Baseline to Week 48 ]
    FVC is pulmonary function test and will be conducted as per the study Pulmonary Function Manual, which is based on the American Thoracic Society/European Respiratory Society (ATS/ERS) Consensus Statement. FVC is the maximum amount of air exhaled from the lungs after taking the deepest breath possible. Patients perform three to eight exhalations into a spirometer with the highest value recorded.
  • Change in Health Assessment Questionnaire Disability Index (HAQ-DI) Score During Double-blind Period [ Time Frame: From Baseline to Week 48 ]
    The Health Assessment Questionnaire Disability Index (HAQ-DI) consists of 20 questions referring to eight component sets consisting of dressing/grooming, arising, eating, walking, hygiene, reach, grip, and activities. Each item is scored on a 4-point scale from 0 to 3: 0 = Without any difficulty; 1 = With some difficulty; 2 = With much difficulty; 3 = Unable to do. Overall score was computed as the sum of component set scores and divided by the number of component sets answered. Total possible score range 0-3 where 0 = least difficulty and 3 = extreme difficulty. The total score indicates the patient's self-assessed level of disability. This outcome measure represents the change in mean score from baseline. A negative change from baseline indicates improvement.
  • Change in Patient Global Assessment Score During Double-blind Period [ Time Frame: From Baseline to Week 48 ]
    The Patient's Global Assessment represents the patient's overall assessment of current SSc status on a 100-mm horizontal visual analogue scale (VAS), ranging from 0 on the extreme left end of the scale indicating "has no effect at all" (symptom free), and 100 on the extreme right end indicating "worst possible effect."
  • Change in Physician Global Assessment Score During Double-blind Period [ Time Frame: From Baseline to Week 48 ]
    The Physician's Global Assessment is to be completed on the basis of examination and overall assessment of the patient. The physician's assessment of the patient's SSc status will be scored on a 100-mm horizontal visual analogue scale (VAS), ranging from 0 on the extreme left end of the scale indicating "has no effect at all" (symptom free), and 100 on the extreme right end indicating "worst possible effect."
  • Time to Treatment Failure According to mRSS, FVC, or Protocol-Specified Event During Double-blind Period [ Time Frame: From Baseline to Week 48 ]
    Time to treatment failure is defined as the time from randomization to the time of death, decline in percent-predicted FVC > 10% relative to baseline, > 20% increase in mRSS and an increase in mRSS of equal to or more than 5 points, or occurrence of a predefined SSc-related complication as adjudicated by the Clinical Adjudication Committee (whichever occurs first) during the 48-week double-blind treatment period. The median TTF was not estimable and is not presented for either treatment arm because of the low number of patients with events at Week 48.

  • Percentage of Participants With Change in Digital Ulcer Count During Double-blind Period [ Time Frame: From Baseline to Week 48 ]
    A digital ulcer is defined as an ulcer at or distal to the MCP joint on either the dorsal or volar surface, with loss of surface epithelialization. This does not include fissures, cracks, or calcium extrusions from calcinosis cutis. The number of fingers (0-10) with digital ulcers and the number of digital (or finger) ulcers will be counted and recorded by the investigator.

Samples that are positive for anti-TCZ in the screening assay will be further analyzed by a confirmation assay to confirm specificity.
