Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Proportion of subjects achieving ASAS 20 response at week 16 [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Primary endpoint is proportion of subjects achieving an ASAS 20 (Assessment of SpondyloArthritis International Society criteria) response at week 16 in subgroup of patients who are TNFα inhibitor naïve compared to placebo. ASAS Response Criteria is defined as an improvement of at least 20% and absolute improvement of at least 10 units on a 0-100mm scale in at least 3 of 4 assessment domains (1. subject's global assessment of disease activity 2. subject's assessment of inflammatory back pain 3. function represented by BASFI VAS 4. morning stiffness represented by the last 2 questions on BASDAI)


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Proportion of subjects achieving ASAS 20 response at week 16 in whole study population [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Proportion of patients achieving an ASAS 20 response in the whole study population compared to placebo at week 16. The ASAS Response Criteria is defined as an improvement of at least 20% and absolute improvement of at least 10 units on a 0-100mm scale in at least 3 of 4 assessment domains (1. subject's global assessment of disease activity 2. subject's assessment of inflammatory back pain 3. function represented by BASFI VAS 4. morning stiffness represented by the last 2 questions on BASDAI)

  • Proportion of subjects achieving ASAS 40 response at week 16 [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Proportion of subjects achieving an ASAS 40 response at week 16 in subgroup of patients who are TNFα inhibitor naïve compared to placebo. ASAS Response Criteria is defined as an improvement of at least 40% and absolute improvement of at least 10 units on a 0-100mm scale in at least 3 of 4 assessment domains (1. subject's global assessment of disease activity 2. subject's assessment of inflammatory back pain 3. function represented by BASFI VAS 4. morning stiffness represented by the last 2 questions on BASDAI)

  • Proportion of subjects achieving ASAS 40 response at week 16 in whole study population [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Proportion of patients achieving an ASAS 40 response in the whole study population compared to placebo at week 16. The ASAS Response Criteria is defined as an improvement of at least 40% and absolute improvement of at least 10 units on a 0-100mm scale in at least 3 of 4 assessment domains (1. subject's global assessment of disease activity 2. subject's assessment of inflammatory back pain 3. function represented by BASFI VAS 4. morning stiffness represented by the last 2 questions on BASDAI)
