A Study of Tocilizumab in Comparison to Etanercept in Participants With Rheumatoid Arthritis and Cardiovascular Disease Risk Factors
A Clinical Outcomes Study to Evaluate the Effects of IL-6 Receptor Blockade With Tocilizumab (TCZ) in Comparison With Etanercept (ETA) on the Rate of Cardiovascular Events in Patients With Moderate to Severe Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA)
This randomized, open-label, parallel-group, multicenter study will evaluate the rate of cardiovascular events with tocilizumab in comparison to etanercept in participants with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Participants will be randomized to receive intravenous (IV) 8 milligrams per kilogram (mg/kg) tocilizumab every 4 weeks or subcutaneous 50 milligrams (mg) etanercept weekly, with or without non-biologic disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drug (DMARD).

  • Drug: Etanercept
    Participants will receive 50 mg etanercept subcutaneously weekly until switch to another RA therapy or up to 4.9 years.
  • Drug: Tocilizumab
    Participants will receive 8 mg/kg tocilizumab IV every 4 weeks until switch to another RA therapy or up to 4.9 years.
    Other Name: Actemra
