Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The proportion of TNF naive participants who achieved an ASAS 40 response (Assessment of SpondyloArthritis International Society criteria) [ Time Frame: Week 16 ]
    ASAS40 (Assessment of SpondyloArthritis International Society criteria) response is defined as an improvement of ≥40% and ≥2 units on a scale of 10 in at least three of the four ASAS main domains and no worsening at all in the remaining domain

  2. The proportion of TNF naive participants who achieved an ASAS 40 response (Assessment of SpondyloArthritis International Society criteria) [ Time Frame: Week 52 ]
    ASAS40 response is defined as an improvement of ≥40% and ≥2 units on a scale of 10 in at least three of the four ASAS main domains and no worsening at all in the remaining domain


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. The proportion of participants who achieved an ASAS 5/6 [ Time Frame: Week 16 ]
    The ASAS 5/6 improvement criteria is an improvement of ≥20% in at least five of all six domains

  2. Change in BASDAI (Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Disease Activity Index) over time [ Time Frame: Week 16 ]
    The BASDAI (Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Disease Activity Index) consists of a 0 through 10 scale (0 being no problem and 10 being the worst problem, captured as a continuous VAS), which is used to answer 6 questions pertaining to the 5 major symptoms of AS

  3. Change in SF-36 (Short Form-36 Physical Component Summary) physical Component Summary over time [ Time Frame: Week 16 ]
    The SF-36 (Short Form-36 Physical Component Summary) is an instrument to measure health-related quality of life among healthy patients and patients with acute and chronic conditions

  4. The proportion of patients to achieve a BASDAI 50 response [ Time Frame: Week 16 and 52 ]
    The BASDAI 50 is defined as an improvement of at least 50% in the BASDAI compared to baseline.

  5. Change in Sacroiliac Joint Edema [ Time Frame: Week 16 and 52 ]
    MRI assessment of the Sacroiliac Joint

  6. Change in high sensitivity C-reactive protein over time [ Time Frame: Week 16 ]
    high sensitivity C-reactive protein is measured as a marker of inflammation from blood samples during the study

  7. The proportion of participants who achieved an ASAS 20 response [ Time Frame: Week 16 and 52 ]
    ASAS 20 response is defined as an improvement of ≥40% and ≥2 unit on a scale of 10 in at least three of the four main domains and no worsening at all in the remaining domain

  8. Change in BASFI (Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Functional Index) over time [ Time Frame: Week 16 ]
    The BASFI (Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Functional Index) is a set of 10 questions designed to determine the degree of functional limitation in those patients with AS.

  9. The proportion of patients who achieved an ASAS partial remission [ Time Frame: Week 16 ]
    The ASAS partial remission criteria are defined as a value not above 2 units in each of the four main domains on a scale of 10

  10. The proportion of participants who achieved an ASAS 20 response [ Time Frame: Week 16 ]
    ASAS 20 response is defined as an improvement of ≥20% and ≥1 unit on a scale of 10 in at least three of the four main domains and no worsening of ≥20% and ≥1 unit on a scale of 10 in the remaining domain

  11. Change in ASQoL (Ankylosing Spondylitis Quality of Life scores) over time [ Time Frame: Week 16 and 52 ]
    The ASQoL (Ankylosing Spondylitis Quality of Life scores) is an instrument to measure health-related quality of life among patients with Ankylosig spondylosrthritis

  12. The proportion of patients who achieved an Ankylosing Spondylitis Disease Activity Score (ASDAS)-C-Reactive Protein (CRP) inactive disease [ Time Frame: Week 52 ]
    The Ankylosing Spondylitis Disease Activity Score (ASDAS)-C-Reactive Protein (CRP) inactive disease criteria are defined as a value below 1.3 of a composite
