  Purpose
This open-label, multicenter study will evaluate the pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, and safety of subcutaneously administered tocilizumab in participants with Systemic Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (sJIA). Participants with body weight less than (<) 30 kilograms (kg) will receive subcutaneous (SC) tocilizumab dose every 2 weeks (Q2W) and participants with body weight greater than or equal to (>=) 30 kg will receive weekly (QW), for 52 weeks. Tocilizumab was administered every 10 days until pre-planned interim analysis was performed and changed to Q2W in participants with body weight <30 kg.

  • History of atypical tuberculosis (TB) or active TB requiring treatment within 2 years prior to screening visit
  • Positive TB test at screening unless treated with anti-TB therapy for at least 4 weeks prior to receiving study drug
  • 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
