Hoffmann-La Roche
  Purpose
This open-label, single arm, multicenter long-term extension study of WA19926 (NCT01649804) will evaluate the safety and efficacy of tocilizumab in participants with early moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis who have completed the 104-week WA19926 (NCT01649804) core study. Eligible participants will be those who are expected to benefit from the study medicine based on the investigator's discretion.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Participants with Adverse Events (AEs) and Serious AEs (SAEs) [ Time Frame: Baseline up to approximately 2.5 years ]

  • Change from Baseline in Simplified Disease Activity Index (SDAI) Score at Specified Time Points [ Time Frame: Baseline, Weeks 12, 24, 36, 48, 56, 68, 80, 92, 104, follow-up 1 (8 weeks after the last visit or discontinuation), follow-up 2 (16 weeks after the last visit or discontinuation) up to approximately 2.5 years ]
  • Change from Baseline in Swollen Joint Count (SJC) at Specified Time Points [ Time Frame: Baseline, Weeks 12, 24, 36, 48, 56, 68, 80, 92, 104, follow-up 1 (8 weeks after the last visit or discontinuation), follow-up 2 (16 weeks after the last visit or discontinuation) up to approximately 2.5 years ]
  • Change from Baseline in Tender Joint Count (TJC) at Specified Time Points [ Time Frame: Baseline, Weeks 12, 24, 36, 48, 56, 68, 80, 92, 104, follow-up 1 (8 weeks after the last visit or discontinuation), follow-up 2 (16 weeks after the last visit or discontinuation) up to approximately 2.5 years ]
  • Percentage of Participants Reaching Clinical Remission (DAS28-ESR Score Less Than [<] 2.6 and SDAI Score Less Than or Equal to [</=] 3.3) Among Participants for Whom Tocilizumab Treatment is Discontinued [ Time Frame: Baseline, Weeks 12, 24, 36, 48, 56, 68, 80, 92, 104, follow-up 1 (8 weeks after the last visit or discontinuation), follow-up 2 (16 weeks after the last visit or discontinuation) up to approximately 2.5 years ]
  • Time to Rheumatoid Arthritis Relapse Among Participants Who Achieve Clinical Remission Without Drug [ Time Frame: Baseline up to approximately 2.5 years ]
  • Patient's Global Assessment of Disease Activity (PGA), Using Visual Analog Scale (VAS) Score [ Time Frame: Baseline, Weeks 12, 24, 36, 48, 56, 68, 80, 92, 104, follow-up 1 (8 weeks after the last visit or discontinuation), follow-up 2 (16 weeks after the last visit or discontinuation) up to approximately 2.5 years ]
