Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Participants With an American College of Rheumatology (ACR) 20 Response at Day 169 in Short Term Period [ Time Frame: Day 169 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The ACR score of 20 indicates the degree of improvement in a patient's rheumatoid arthritis (RA), based on ACR guidelines (ACR20). The ACR score represents a percentage. To qualify for an ACR20 score, the patient must have >=20% fewer tender joints and >=20% fewer swollen joints and show 20% improvement in at least 3 of: patient overall assessment of his/her RA, physician global assessment of the patient's RA, patient self-assessment of pain, patient self-assessment of physical functioning, and results of an erythrocyte sedimentation rate or C-reactive protein test (to assess inflammation). Percentage is calculated n/N with n=number of participants with ACR score of 20 and N= all randomized participants who received at least one dose of study drug.

  • Percentage of Participants With Sustained American College of Rheumatology (ACR) Response at Day 533 in Long Term Period - All Randomized and Treated Participants During the Long Term Period [ Time Frame: Day 533 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The ACR score indicates the degree of improvement in a patient's rheumatoid arthritis (RA), based on ACR guidelines. The ACR score= a percentage. To qualify for a score of 20, 50 or 70 (ACR20, ACR50 or ACR70), the patient must have >=20%, >=50% or >=70%, respectively, fewer tender joints and >=20%, >=50% or >=70%, respectively, fewer swollen joints and show 20%, 50% or 70%, respectively, improvement in at least 3 of the following: patient overall assessment of his/her RA, physician global assessment of the patient's RA, patient self-assessment of pain, patient self-assessment of physical functioning, and results of an erythrocyte sedimentation rate or C-reactive protein test (to assess inflammation). Treatment groups represent treatment received in the short term period. Percentage calculated as n/m with n=number of paticipants with sustained ACR response at Day 533; m= long term participants who received at least one dose of drug and were ACR responders in the short term period.

  • Mean Change From Baseline in HAQ-DI Score at Day 533 in Long Term Period [ Time Frame: Baseline to Day 533 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Adjusted mean. The Health Assessment Questionnaire Disability Index (HAQ-DI) assesses patients' functional ability by rating their abilities over the previous week. At least 2 questions are asked from each of 8 categories: dressing and grooming, hygiene, arising, reach, eating, grip, walking, and common daily activities. Patients rate difficulty performing specific tasks: 0=without difficulty, 1=with some difficulty, 2=with much difficulty, and 3=unable to do. The sum of the categories score (the highest scored item in the category) is divided by the number of categories answered, yielding a score from 0-3. Treatment groups represent treatment received in the short term period. Baseline is Day 1 of the study or last non-missing pre-treatment value.

  • Percentage of Participants With Health Assessment Questionnaire (HAQ) Response at Day 533 in Long Term Period [ Time Frame: Day 533 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The Health Assessment Questionnaire (HAQ) disability index assesses patients' functional ability by rating their abilities over the previous week. At least 2 questions are asked from each of 8 categories: dressing and grooming, hygiene, arising, reach, eating, grip, walking, and common daily activities. Patients rate difficulty performing specific tasks: 0=without difficulty, 1=with some difficulty, 2=with much difficulty, and 3=unable to do. The higher the number the worse the outcome. The sum of the categories score (the highest scored item in the category) is divided by the number of categories answered, yielding a score from 0-3. HAQ response=reduction of at least 0.30 units in HAQ score from baseline. The percentage of participants with a reduction of at least 0.30 units in their HAQ score from baseline is presented. Baseline is Day 1 of the study or last non-missing pre-treatment value. Treatment groups represent treatment received in the short term period.

  • Mean Change in DAS28-CRP From Baseline at Day 533 in Long Term Period [ Time Frame: Baseline to Day 533 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The Disease Activity Score 28 using C-Reactive Protein (DAS28-CRP) is a measure of disease activity in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and assesses the 28 joints RA commonly affects; the score includes the number of tender and swollen joints (out of 28), CRP level (a measure of inflammation in the blood), and the patient's global assessment of health (ranging from very good to very bad). An overall DAS >5.1 implies active disease; <3.2, well controlled disease; and <2.6, remission.). Treatment groups represent treatment received in the short term period. Baseline is Day 1 of the study or last non-missing pre-treatment value.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Participants With American College of Rheumatology 50 (ACR50) and American College of Rheumatology 70 (ACR70) Responses at Day 169 in Short Term Period [ Time Frame: Day 169 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The American College of Rheumatology (ACR) scores of 50 and 70 indicates the degree of improvement in a patient's rheumatoid arthritis (RA), based on ACR guidelines. The ACR score represents a percentage. To qualify for an ACR50 or ACR70 scores, the patient must have >=50% or >=70%, respectively, fewer tender joints and >=50% or >=70%, respectively, fewer swollen joints and show 50% or 70%, respectively, improvement in at least 3 of the following: patient overall assessment of his/her RA, physician global assessment of the patient's RA, patient self-assessment of pain, patient self-assessment of physical functioning, and results of an erythrocyte sedimentation rate or C-reactive protein test (to assess inflammation).

Patients rate difficulty performing specific tasks: 0=without difficulty, 1=with some difficulty, 2=with much difficulty, and 3=unable to do. The sum of the categories score (the highest scored item in the category) is divided by the number of categories answered, yielding a score from 0-3.

Participants with a positive result on TB screening test indicative of latent TB were not eligible for the study unless active TB infection had been ruled out and treatment for latent TB with isoniazid had been initiated for at least 4 weeks prior to administration of the study drug and the participant had a negative finding for TB on a chest X-ray film at enrollment.
  • Herpes zoster resolving less than 2 months prior to enrollment
  • Current evidence (as assessed by the investigator) suggestive of active or latent bacterial or viral infections, including human immunodeficiency virus infection.
  • Physical examination and laboratory test findings: Hepatitis B surface antigen-positive status; hepatitis C antibody-positive status. Any of the following laboratory values: Hemoglobin concentration: <.5 g/dL; white blood cell count: <3,000/μL (3*10^9/L); platelet count: <100,000/mm^3(100*10^9/L); serum creatinine: >2 times upper limit of normal (ULN); serum alanine aminotransferase: >2 ULN; serum aspartate aminotransferase: >2 ULN.
  • Prohibited treatments and/or therapies: Prior exposure to abatacept (CTLA4-Ig); prior RA treatment with any biologics, such as anti-tumor necrosis factor therapy; prior exposure to any investigational biologic not currently approved in Japan; exposure to any study medication in any other previous study within 4 weeks or 5 half-lives, whichever was longer; receipt of any live vaccines within 3 months of administration of study medication or scheduled to receive live vaccines.
