|- Brief summary||Study Title:|
A ranomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-controlled, Phase 2a study of the Efficacy, safety and pharmacokinetics of MLN3897 in Patients with active Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA).
-The ability of MLN3897 to modify signs and symptoms of RA
-The safety and tolerability of MLN3897 in combination with methotrexate
-the pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic profile of MLN3897 in the RA population
Number of patients: 186.
The study population will consist of male and female patients aged 18-70 years who have 1) RA with a duration of at least 6 months (based on ACR criteria); 2) an RA Global Functional Class of I,II or III; 3) at least 6 tender and 6 swollen joints at the time of randomization; and 4) at least 2 of 3 criteria (morning stiffness duration >45 minutes, CRP>15, ESR ¡Ý28 mm/hr). Patients must be taking methotrexate for a minimum of 6 months prior to screening.
Eligible patients will receive MLN3897 or placebo for 84 days. After the treatment period, there is a 30-day follow-up period.
