  Description
Tocilizumab

Single arm study - treatment only

tocilizumab: Initial therapy: Tocilizumab dosed by body weight (8mg/kg based on body weight ≥ 30kg) given by intravenous infusion every two weeks for 12 weeks.

Extension of therapy: Continuation of treatment with tocilizumab at 8mg/kg by body weight given by intravenous infusion every 2 weeks based upon achievement of Primary Objective by week 12, OR continuation of treatment with escalation of tocilizumab dose to 12mg/kg by body weight, given by intravenous infusion every two weeks, for failure to achieve ACR JIA30 at 12 weeks or ACR JIA50 response at any time after week 16.

  Outcome Measures
  Show All Outcome Measures

1.  Primary:   Efficacy of Tocilizumab as Defined by Presence of an Equal to or Greater Than 30% Improvement in JIA Core Set (i.e. ACR JIA30 Response)   [ Time Frame: At week 12 of treatment versus week 0 (pretreatment) ]

2.  Primary:   Efficacy of Tocilizumab as Defined by Reduction of Oral Prednisone Dose by at Least 20%, or to Less Than 0.5mg/kg/Day, Whichever is of Lesser Daily Dose, While Maintaining an ACR JIA30 Response   [ Time Frame: At weeks 12 and 16 of treatment versus week 0 (pretreatment) ]

3.  Primary:   Number of Participants With at Least One Adverse Event   [ Time Frame: Ongoing, throughout 24 month study period ]

4.  Secondary:   Measurement of Laboratory Parameters of Active Disease, Specifically C-reactive Protein, Hemoglobin, Platelets, White Blood Cell Count, Ferritin, Immunoglobulins.   [ Time Frame: At weeks 8, 12, and 16 of treatment, and every 8-12 weeks thereafter ]

5.  Secondary:   Measurement of Sustained Clinical Response to Tocilizumab, Including Active Joint Count, Joints With Limited Range of Motion, and Absence of Fever or Rash.   [ Time Frame: At weeks 8, 12, 16 of treatment, and every 8 weeks thereafter ]
