- Safety, tolerability and immunogenicity of subcutaneous (s.c.) ACZ885
- To assess the initial efficacy profile of s.c. ACZ885: % responder to treatment and time to relapse and control the systemic manifestations of SJIA such as fever.
- pharmacokinetics of ACZ885
- To assess pharmacokinetics (PK) / pharmacodynamics (PD) relationships in order to derive a dose and dosing regimen
- proportion of patients with inactive disease at each dose level.
- To investigate the possibility of corticosteroid tapering.
- biomarker and pharmacogenomic characterization of patients at baseline and to evaluate the treatment response to ACZ885.
