  • Area Under the Curve at Steady-state Over a 12-week Interval (AUC12weeks) of TCZ Treatment [ Time Frame: Pre-dose (Hour 0) up to 2016 hours post Day 1 dose (detailed timeframe is provided in outcome description section) ]
    Detailed timeframe for TCZ SC 162 mg Q3W arm: pre-dose (Hour 0), 96, 504, 1008, 2016 hours post Day 1 dose (additionally at 6, 12, 48, 120 hours post Day 1 dose in participants >/=2 years old). Detailed timeframe for TCZ SC 162 mg Q2W arm: pre-dose (Hour 0), 6, 12, 48, 120, 336, 672, 1008, 2016 post Day 1 dose.

  • Maximum Serum Concentration (Cmax) of TCZ at Steady State [ Time Frame: Pre-dose (Hour 0) up to 2520 hours post Day 1 dose (detailed timeframe is provided in outcome description section) ]
    Detailed timeframe for TCZ SC 162 mg Q3W arm: pre-dose (Hour 0), 96, 504, 1008, 2016, 2022, 2064, 2112, ,2160, 2520 hours post Day 1 dose (additionally at 6, 12, 48, 120, 2028 hours post Day 1 dose in participants >/=2 years old). Detailed timeframe for TCZ SC 162 mg Q2W arm: pre-dose (Hour 0), 6, 12, 48, 120, 336, 672, 1008, 2016, 2022, 2028, 2040, 2064, 2112, 2160, 2520 hours post Day 1 dose.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline in Serum Interleukin-6 (IL-6) Levels [ Time Frame: Baseline, Days 0.25, 0.5, 2, 4, 5, 84.25, 84.5, 85, 86, 88, 90; Weeks 2, 3, 4, 6, 12, 14, 15, 27, 28, 36, 44, 52 ]
    IL-6 is a cytokine associated with disease activity in juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) including the polyarticular juvenile idiopathic arthritis (pJIA) subset. It is found in high levels in the synovial fluid and is associated with indicators of inflammatory activity.

  • Change From Baseline in Soluble IL-6 Receptor Levels [ Time Frame: Baseline, Days 0.25, 0.5, 2, 4, 5, 84.25, 84.5, 85, 86, 88, 90; Weeks 2, 3, 4, 6, 12, 14, 15, 27, 28, 36, 44, 52 ]
  • Change From Baseline in C-Reactive Protein (CRP) Levels [ Time Frame: Baseline, Weeks 4, 6, 9, 12,18, 20, 27, 28, 36, 44, 45, 51, 52 ]
  • Change From Baseline in Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR) [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 4, 6, 9, 12, 18, 20, 27, 28, 36, 44, 45, 51, 52 ]
    The ESR is an acute phase reactant and a measure of inflammation. A negative change from baseline indicates improvement.

  • Percentage of Participants With Anti-TCZ Antibodies of Neutralizing Potential [ Time Frame: Baseline up to Week 52 ]

Participants participating in the study may be either naive to TCZ therapy or may be switching from IV to SC. The total number of participants switching from IV TCZ must account for no more than 50 percent (%) of the total participant number. To account for the baseline TCZ concentrations in these participants, information on the last 4 IV TCZ infusions prior to baseline will be collected

  • Participants who are wheelchair-bound or bedridden
  • Any other auto-immune, rheumatic disease, or overlapping syndrome other than the permitted pcJIA subsets
  • Lack of recovery from recent surgery or an interval of <6 weeks since surgery at the time of the screening visit

  • History of alcohol, drug, or chemical abuse within 6 months of screening
  • Any active acute, subacute, chronic, or recurrent bacterial, viral, or systemic fungal infection or any major episode of infection requiring hospitalization or treatment during screening or treatment with IV antibiotics completed within 4 weeks of the screening visit or oral antibiotics completed within 2 weeks of the screening visit
  • History of atypical tuberculosis (TB) or active TB requiring treatment within 2 years prior to screening visit
  • Positive purified protein derivative (PPD) at screen, unless treated with anti-TB therapy for at least 4 weeks prior to receiving study drug and chest radiograph is negative for active TB within 6 months of screening visit according to local practice
  • History of reactivation or new onset of a systemic infection such as herpes zoster or Epstein-Barr virus within 2 months of the screening visit
  • Hepatitis B surface antigen or hepatitis C antibody positivity or chronic viral or autoimmune hepatitis
  • History of concurrent serious gastrointestinal disorders such as ulcer or inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, or other symptomatic lower gastrointestinal conditions
  • History of or current cancer or lymphoma
