  • Mean Trough Serum Concentration (Cmin) of Abatacept [ Time Frame: Days 29, 85, 57, and 85 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Cmin of abatacept was determined from serum samples.
  • Percentage of Participants With A Positive Anti-abatacept Response (Based on Enzyme-linked Immunosorbent Assay [ELISA]) at Day 85 [ Time Frame: Day 1 (Baseline) through Day 85 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Using the ELISA, any positive (titer of 400 or greater) postbaseline sample was classified as positive immunogenicity. The percentage of participants with at least 1 positive antibody response (anti-abatacept and/or anti-CTLA4-T) during the 85 days was tabulated by antibody specificity and overall.
  • Percentage of Participants With A Positive Anti-abatacept Response (Based on Electrochemiluminescence [ECL] Immunoassay) at Day 85 [ Time Frame: Day 1 (Baseline) through Day 85 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Number of participants was tabulated using ECL assay with at least 1 positive abatacept-induced immunogenic response (CTLA4 and possibly Ig, Ig and/or Junction Region) in the first 85 days. Positive response (titers >10) included:

    • A missing baseline immunogenicity measurement and a positive immunogenicity response postbaseline
    • A negative baseline immunogenicity response and a positive immunogenicity response postbaseline
    • A positive baseline immunogenicity response and a positive immunogenicity response postbaseline that has a titer value strictly greater than the baseline titer value
  • Mean Disease Activity Score 28 Based on C-reactive Protein (DAS 28-CRP) Scores Over Time [ Time Frame: Day 1 (Baseline) through Day 1093 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The DAS 28-CRP is a measure of disease activity in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and assesses the 28 joints RA commonly affects; the score includes the number of tender and swollen joints (out of 28), C-reactive protein level (a measure of inflammation in the blood), and the patient's global assessment of health (ranging from very good to very bad). DAS-CRP scores range from 0 to 10, with higher values indicating greater disease activity. Individual measures are fed into a complex mathematical formula to produce the overall DAS (a score greater than 5.1 implies active disease; less than 3.2, well controlled disease; and less than 2.6, remission.)
  • Percentage of Participants With Low Disease Activity Score (LDAS) and Disease Activity Score 28 Based on C-reactive Protein (DAS 28-CRP) Remission Over Time: [ Time Frame: Day 1 (Baseline) through Day 1093 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    LDAS is defined as DAS 28-CRP ≤3.2. DAS 28-CRP remission is defined as DAS 28-CRP <2.6. The DAS 28-CRP is a measure of disease activity in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and assesses the 28 joints RA commonly affects; the score includes the number of tender and swollen joints (out of 28), C-reactive protein level (a measure of inflammation in the blood), and the patient's global assessment of health (ranging from very good to very bad). DAS-CRP scores range from 0 to 10, with higher values indicating greater disease activity. Individual measures are fed into a complex mathematical formula to produce the overall DAS (a score greater than 5.1 implies active disease; less than 3.2, well controlled disease; and less than 2.6, remission.)
  • Mean Health Assessment Questionnaire-Disability Index (HAQ-DI) Scores Over Time [ Time Frame: Day 1 (Baseline) to Day 1093 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The HAQ-DI assesses patients' functional ability by rating their abilities over the previous week. At least 2 questions are asked from each of 8 categories: dressing and grooming, hygiene, arising, reach, eating, grip, walking, and common daily activities. Patients rate difficulty performing specific tasks: 0=without difficulty, 1=with some difficulty, 2=with much difficulty, and 3=unable to do. The sum of the categories is divided by the number of categories answered, yielding a score from 0-3.
There is no secondary efficacy endpoint as the secondary objective is to describe the trough serum concentrations and immunogenicity

Women of childbearing potential (WOCBP) must have been practicing adequate contraceptive measures during the study and for up to 10 weeks after the last infusion of study medication in such a manner that the risk of pregnancy was minimized. WOCBP must have had a negative serum or urine pregnancy test result (minimum sensitivity of 25 IU/L or equivalent units of human chorionic gonadotropin [HCG]) within 48 hours prior to the start of study medication.

Exclusion Criteria:
