    An AE is any untoward medical occurrence in a participant who received study drug without regard to possibility of causal relationship. An AE can therefore be any unfavorable and unintended sign (example, a clinically significant abnormal laboratory finding), symptom, or disease temporally associated with the use of a drug, whether or not it is considered related to the drug. An SAE is an AE resulting in any of the following outcomes or deemed significant for any other reason: death, initial or prolonged inpatient hospitalization, life-threatening experience (immediate risk of dying), persistent or significant disability/incapacity, or a congenital anomaly, or a medically important event.

  14. Trough Observed Plasma Concentration (Ctrough) of BMS-986142 [ Time Frame: Week 4, 8, and 12 ]
    Ctrough was defined as trough observed plasma concentration.

  15. Mean Change From Baseline in Rheumatoid Arthritis Magnetic Resonance Imaging Scoring System (RAMRIS) Scores for Synovitis at Week 4 and 12 [ Time Frame: Week 4 and Week 12 ]
    Synovitis is assessed in 3 wrist regions (A. the distal radioulnar joint; B. the radiocarpal joint; C. the intercarpal and carpometacarpophalangeal, CMC, joints) and in each MCP joint. For each wrist region, possible score ranges from 0-3, with 0=normal, 1=mild, 2=moderate, and 3=severe damage. The total synovitis score per wrist=the sum of the individual scores for the 3 wrist regions. Minimum score per wrist ranges from 0, indicating no damage, to 9 (score of 3*3 wrist regions), indicating most severe damage. A negative change from baseline indicates improvement.

  16. Mean Change From Baseline in Rheumatoid Arthritis Magnetic Resonance Imaging Scoring System (RAMRIS) Scores for Osteitis at Week 4 and 12 [ Time Frame: Week 4, and Week 12 ]
    Osteitis was assessed at a total of 23 anatomic locations: 15 in 1 wrist and 8 in the hand of the same side. Each site is scored in 1.0 increments from 0 to 3, indicating involvement of original articular bone. The total score for the hands/wrists is the sum of the individual scores for each location. Thus the maximum score achievable per hand/wrist is 23 (total number of anatomic locations) * 3 (maximum per joint)=69. Minimum score=0, indicating normal. Increasing score=greater severity. A negative change from baseline indicates improvement.

  17. Mean Change From Baseline in Rheumatoid Arthritis Magnetic Resonance Imaging Scoring System (RAMRIS) Scores for Bone Erosion at Week 4 and 12 [ Time Frame: Week 4 and Week 12 ]
    Bone erosion assessed at a total of 23 anatomic locations: 15 in 1 wrist and 8 in the hand of the same side. Each site is scored in 1.0 increments from 0 (no damage) to 10 (severe damage) according to erosion of the original articular bone (each unit=10% loss of articular bone). The total erosion score for the hands/wrists is the sum of the individual scores for each location. Thus the maximum score achievable per hand/wrist is 230. Increasing score=greater severity.A negative change from baseline indicates improvement.

  18. Mean Change From Baseline in Rheumatoid Arthritis Magnetic Resonance Imaging Scoring System (RAMRIS) Scores for Cartilage Loss at Week 4 and 12 [ Time Frame: Week 4, and Week12 ]
    Cartilage loss was assessed by MRI. Scans of 25 joints were read and scored for each participant by assessors. Scores for each location ranged 0-4 on a 9-point scale, with 0= no cartilage loss and 4= complete cartilage loss. Total score was the sum of the 25 individual scores and ranged 0-100 with 0= no cartilage loss and 100= most severe cartilage loss. A negative change from baseline indicates improvement.
