Further study details as provided by AstraZeneca:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Pharmacokinetics of AZD9056 and Methotrexate [ Time Frame: Pharmacokinetic samples for Methotrexate taken at baseline and and at steady state.Pharmacokinetc samples for AZD9056 taken at steady state ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Pharmacokinetics of AZD9056 and 7-OH Methotrexate [ Time Frame: Pharmacokinetics samples for 7-OH Methotrexate taken at baseline and and at steady state.Pharmacokinetc samples for AZD9056 taken at steady state ]
  • Safety and tolerability (Physical examination, vital signs, electrocardiogram (ECG), safety laboratory,adverse events.) [ Time Frame: During the whole study ]
