Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Pfizer
  Purpose
This post-marketing study is designed to compare the safety of tofacitinib versus TNF inhibitor with respect to major cardiovascular adverse events and malignancies, excluding non-melanoma skin cancers when given to subjects with rheumatoid arthritis. Other safety events, including non-melanoma skin cancers, hepatic events, infections, and efficacy parameters will be collected and evaluated in the study.

Arthritis, Rheumatoid Drug: tofacitinib Biological: adalimumab Biological: etanercept Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Phase 3b/4 Randomized Safety Endpoint Study Of 2 Doses Of Tofacitinib In Comparison To A Tumor Necrosis Factor (Tnf) Inhibitor In Subjects With Rheumatoid Arthritis

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Malignancies, excluding non-menlanoma skin cancer (NMSC) [ Time Frame: 5 years ]
    Events meeting pre-defined adjudication criteria

  • Incidence of major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) [ Time Frame: 5 years ]
    Events meeting pre-defined adjudication criteria


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Opportunistic infections [ Time Frame: 5 years ]
    Adjudicated, including tuberculosis

  • Hepatic events [ Time Frame: 5 years ]
    Adjudicated

  • Cardiovascular events other than MACE [ Time Frame: 5 years ]
    Adjudicated

  • All cause mortality [ Time Frame: 5 years ]
    Adjudicated

  • Disease Activity Score Based on 28-joints Count (DAS28) [ Time Frame: Month 3, 6, 9, 12, 24, 36, 48, 60 ]
    DAS28 calculated from the number of swollen joints (SJC) and painful joints (PJC) using the 28 joints count, the erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) (millimeters per hour [mm/hour]) and patient's global assessment (PGA) of disease activity (participant rated arthritis activity assessment with transformed scores ranging 0 to 10; higher scores indicated greater affectation due to disease activity). DAS28 ≤3.2 = low disease activity, DAS28 >3.2 to 5.1 = moderate to high disease activity.

  • Number of Participants With an American College of Rheumatology 20% (ACR20) Response [ Time Frame: Month 3, 6, 9, 12, 24, 36, 48, 60 ]
    ACR20 response: greater than or equal to (≥) 20 percent (%) improvement in tender joint count; ≥ 20% improvement in swollen joint count; and ≥ 20% improvement in at least 3 of 5 remaining ACR core measures: participant assessment of pain; participant global assessment of disease activity; physician global assessment of disease activity; self-assessed disability (disability index of the Health Assessment Questionnaire [HAQ]); and C-Reactive Protein (CRP).

  • Clinical Disease Activity Index (CDAI) [ Time Frame: Month 3, 6, 9, 12, 24, 36, 48, 60 ]
  • Simplified Disease Activity Index (SDAI) [ Time Frame: Month 3, 6, 9, 12, 24, 36, 48, 60 ]
  • ACR-EULAR Boolean remission [ Time Frame: Month 3, 6, 9, 12, 24, 36, 48, 60 ]
    Must have all of the following: < or = 1 tender joint count, < or = 1 swollen joint count, CRP < or = 1 mg/dL, patient global assessment < or = 1 on 0-10 scale

  • Number of Participants Achieving American College of Rheumatology 50% (ACR50) Response [ Time Frame: Month 3, 6, 9, 12, 24, 36, 48, 60 ]
    ACR50 response: greater than or equal to (≥) 50 percent (%) improvement in tender or swollen joint counts and 50% improvement in 3 of the following 5 criteria: 1) physician's global assessment of disease activity, 2) subject's assessment of disease activity, 3) subject's assessment of pain, 4) subject's assessment of functional disability via a health assessment questionnaire, and 5) C-reactive protein at each visit.

  • Number of Participants Achieving American College of Rheumatology 70% (ACR70) Response [ Time Frame: Month 3, 6, 9, 12, 24, 36, 48, 60 ]
    ACR70 response: greater than or equal to (≥) 70 percent (%) improvement in tender or swollen joint counts and 70% improvement in 3 of the following 5 criteria: 1) physician's global assessment of disease activity, 2) subject's assessment of disease activity, 3) subject's assessment of pain, 4) subject's assessment of functional disability via a health assessment questionnaire, and 5) C-reactive protein at each visit.

  • Health Assessment Questionnaire-Disability Index (HAQ-DI) [ Time Frame: Month 3, 6, 9, 12, 24, 36, 48, 60 ]
