Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change From Baseline in the Simplified Disease Activity Index (SDAI) at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 12 ]
    The SDAI is a continuous composite measure derived from components of the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) Core Dataset.The SDAI was calculated using the following formula: SDAI = Tender / Painful Joint Count(TJC) (using 28 joints) + Swollen Joint Count (SJC) (using 28 joints) + Patient Global Assessment of Arthritis (PtGA) (0-10 cm scale) + Physician's Global Assessment of Arthritis (PhGA) (0-10 cm scale) + high sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP) (mg/dL). SDAI total score= 0-86. SDAI <=3.3 indicates disease remission, >3.4 to 11 = low disease activity, >11 to 26 = moderate disease activity, and >26 = high disease activity. The primary analysis utilized a Bayesian ANCOVA model with an informative placebo prior distribution with borrowing from tofacitinib historical placebo data. The confidence interval was credible interval in this statistical analysis. The efficacy endpoint for the tofatinicib arm was an exploratory endpoint and neither primary nor secondary endpoints.

    The EQ-5D-3L health state profile is a patient completed questionnaire designed to assess impact on health related quality of life in 5 domains: mobility, self care, usual activities, pain/discomfort, and anxiety/depression. Additionally, scores from the 5 domains might have been used to calculate a single index value, also known as a utility score. The validity and reliability of the EQ-5D-3L have been established in a number of disease states, including RA. EQ-5D-3L scores marked health status from 0 and 100. There were notes at the both ends of the scale that the bottom rate (0) corresponded to " the worst health you could imagine", and the highest rate (100) corresponded to "the best health you could imagine". Tofacitinib was included in this study as an active control. The efficacy endpoint for the tofatinicib arm was an exploratory endpoint and neither primary nor secondary endpoints.

  33. Change From Baseline in the Functional Assessment of Chronic Illness Therapy - Fatigue (FACIT-F) Total Score at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 12 ]
    The FACIT-F is a patient completed questionnaire consisting of 13 items that assess fatigue. Instrument scoring yields a range from 0 to 52, with higher scores representing better patient status (less fatigue). This questionnaire was performed early in the clinic visit and before the participant had extensive contact with site personnel and/or investigator. Tofacitinib was included in this study as an active control. The efficacy endpoint for the tofatinicib arm was an exploratory endpoint and neither primary nor secondary endpoints.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 75 Years   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Male and female (including WOCBP) subjects between the ages of 18 and 75 years, inclusive.
  2. Diagnosis of RA and meeting the 2010 American College of Rheumatology (ACR)/European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR) classification criteria for RA with a Total Score ≥6/10.
  3. The subject has active disease at both Screening and Baseline, as defined by both:

    • 6 joints tender or painful on motion, AND
    • 6 joints swollen; and fulfills 1 of the following 2 criteria at Screening:
    • High sensitivity C reactive protein (hsCRP) >7 mg/L at screening
    • Erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) (Westergren method) >28 mm/hr;
  4. Meets Class I, II or III of the ACR 1991 Revised Criteria for Global Functional Status in RA.
  5. Subjects must be ACPA positive between screening and randomization.
  6. Subjects must have been taking oral MTX for at least 3 months at an adequate dose to determine that the subject had an inadequate response to MTX
  7. Up to 50 % of subjects may have received one (and only one) approved TNF-inhibiting biologic agent administered that was inadequately effective and/or not tolerated. The anti-TNF biologic could also have been discontinued due to lack of continued access.

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Subjects with a known immunodeficiency disorder or a first degree relative with a hereditary immunodeficiency.
  2. Subjects with any of the following infections or infections history:

    1. Any infection requiring treatment within 2 weeks prior to screening (Visit 1).
    2. Any infection requiring hospitalization, parenteral antimicrobial therapy within 60 days, or as otherwise judged to be an opportunistic infection or clinically significant by the investigator, within the past 6 months.
    3. Infected joint prosthesis at any time with the prosthesis still in situ.
    4. Recurrent (more than one episode) herpes zoster or disseminated (a single episode) herpes zoster or disseminated (a single episode) herpes simplex.
    5. Subjects will be screened for HIV. Subjects who test positive for HIV will be excluded from the study.
    6. Subjects will be screened for hepatitis B virus infection and will be excluded if positive for hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg). Subjects with HBsAg negative testing but who test positive for hepatitis B core antibody (HBcAb) must have further testing for hepatitis B surface antibody (HBsAb). If HBsAb is negative, the subject will be excluded from the study.
    7. Subjects with clinically significant active hepatic disease or hepatic impairment by laboratory assessment.
    8. Subjects will be screened for hepatitis C virus (HCV Ab). Subjects with positive HCV Ab tests will be reflex tested for HCV ribonucleic acid (HCV RNA). Only subjects with negative HCV Ab or HCV RNA will be allowed to enroll in the study.
  3. Evidence of active or latent, untreated or inadequately treated infection with Mycobacterium tuberculosis (TB)
  4. Pre-existing chronic autoimmune disease.
