The primary objective is to investigate the efficacy of sirukumab monotherapy compared with adalimumab monotherapy in biologic naïve subjects with active rheumatoid arthritis who are intolerant to methotrexate, who are considered inappropriate for treatment with methotrexate or who are inadequate responders to methotrexate.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline in Disease Activity Index Score 28 (DAS28) Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR) at Week 24 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 24 ]
    The Disease Activity Index Score 28 using ESR [DAS28 (ESR)] is a derived score combining tender joints (28 joints), swollen joints (28 joints), ESR, and Patient's Global Assessment of Disease Activity. The 28 joints evaluated for swelling and tenderness were shoulder, elbow, wrist, MCP1, MCP2, MCP3, MCP4, MCP5, PIP1, PIP2, PIP3, PIP4, PIP5 joints of the upper right and upper left extremities as well as the knee joints of the lower right and lower left extremities. The DAS28-ESR is expressed on a score range of "0-10", with the minimum score= 0 (best) to maximum score= 10 (worst).

  • Percentage of Participants With an American College of Rheumatology (ACR) 50 Response at Week 24 [ Time Frame: Week 24 ]
    The ACR 50 Response is defined as greater than or equal to (>=) 50 percent (%) improvement in swollen joint count (66 joints) and tender joint count (68 joints) and >= 50% improvement in 3 of following 5 assessments: subject's assessment of pain using Visual Analog Scale (VAS) (0-10 millimeter [mm], 0 mm=no pain and 10 mm=worst possible pain), subject's global assessment of disease activity by using VAS (the scale ranges from 0 mm to 100 mm, [0 mm=no pain to 100 mm=worst possible pain]), physician's global assessment of disease activity using VAS (the scale ranges from 0 to 10, [0=no arthritis activity to 10=extremely active arthritis]), participant's assessment of physical function measured by Health Assessment Questionnaire-Disability Index (HAQ-DI) (the scale ranges from 0, indicating no difficulty, to 3, indicating inability to perform a task in that area) and serum C-Reactive Protein (CRP).


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Participants With Disease Activity Index Score 28 (DAS28) Using Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR) Remission at Week 24 [ Time Frame: Week 24 ]
    The Disease Activity Index Score 28 using ESR [DAS28 (ESR)] is a derived score combining tender joints (28 joints), swollen joints (28 joints), ESR, and Patient's Global Assessment of Disease Activity. The 28 joints evaluated for swelling and tenderness were shoulder, elbow, wrist, MCP1, MCP2, MCP3, MCP4, MCP5, PIP1, PIP2, PIP3, PIP4, PIP5 joints of the upper right and upper left extremities as well as the knee joints of the lower right and lower left extremities. The DAS28-ESR is expressed on a score range of "0-10", with the minimum score= 0 (best) to maximum score= 10 (worst). The DAS28 (ESR) remission is defined as a DAS28 (ESR) value of less than 2.6 at a visit.

  • Percentage of Participants With an American College of Rheumatology (ACR) 20 Response at Week 24 [ Time Frame: Week 24 ]
    The ACR 20 Response is defined as >= 20% improvement in swollen joint count (66 joints) and tender joint count (68 joints) and >=20% improvement in 3 of following 5 assessments: subject's assessment of pain using VAS (0-10 mm, 0 mm=no pain and 10 mm=worst possible pain), subject's global assessment of disease activity by using VAS (the scale ranges from 0 mm to 100 mm, [0 mm=no pain to 100 mm=worst possible pain]), physician's global assessment of disease activity using VAS, subject's assessment of physical function measured by HAQ-DI, defined as a 20-question instrument assessing 8 functional areas. The derived HAQ-DI ranges from 0, indicating no difficulty, to 3, indicating inability to perform a task in that area) and serum CRP.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Group 1 (adalimumab 40 mg)
Adalimumab 40 mg SC at Weeks 0, 2, and every 2 weeks through Week 52. At Week 16, subjects who have < 20% improvement from baseline in both swollen and tender joint counts will early escape in a blinded fashion and receive adalimumab 40 mg every week through Week 52.
Biological: adalimumab 40 mg
SC injections
Other Name: HUMIRA®
Experimental: Group 2 (sirukumab 100 mg)
Sirukumab 100 mg SC at Weeks 0, 2, and every 2 weeks through Week 52. Subjects may meet the early escape criteria at Week 16 (< 20% improvement from baseline in both swollen and tender joint counts) but no sirukumab dose adjustments will made for these subjects. However, these subjects will receive placebo injections every 2 weeks between the sirukumab injections (ie, subjects that early escape will receive a weekly injection of alternating sirukumab and placebo, to preserve the blind).
Biological: sirukumab 100 mg
SC injections
Other Name: CNTO 136
Drug: Placebo
SC injections
Experimental: Group 3 (sirukumab 50 mg)
Sirukumab 50 mg SC at Weeks 0, 4, and every 4 weeks through Week 52. Between sirukumab injections, placebo SC injections will be administered at Weeks 2, 6, and every 4 weeks through Week 50. At Week 16, subjects who have < 20% improvement from baseline in both swollen and tender joint counts will early escape in a blinded fashion and receive sirukumab 100 mg every 2 weeks through Week 52 and placebo injections every 2 weeks between the sirukumab injections (ie, subjects that early escape will receive a weekly injection of alternating sirukumab and placebo, to preserve the blind).

Detailed Description:
This is a randomized, double-blind, parallel-group, global, multicenter study of subcutaneous (SC) sirukumab monotherapy compared with adalimumab monotherapy in subjects with active rheumatoid arthritis. Approximately 510 subjects will be randomly assigned in a 1:1:1 ratio to receive treatment with adalimumab 40 mg SC every 2 weeks, sirukumab 100 mg SC every 2 weeks, or 50 mg SC every 4 weeks, with approximately 170 subjects per treatment group. At Week 16, subjects in all treatment groups who have < 20% improvement from baseline in both swollen and tender joint counts will qualify for early escape. The expected duration of the study is 68 weeks. This includes 52 weeks of treatment with study agent and 16 weeks of safety follow-up after the last study agent administration. The study will end when the last subject completes the last scheduled visit (Week 68 visit or completes the 16 week safety follow-up, whichever is later). Subject safety will be monitored through the end of the study.
