Key inclusion & exclusion criteria
Inclusion criteria:
1. Age = 18 years at time of signing the ICF
2. Meets the American Rheumatism Association 1987 revised criteria for classification of RA.
3. ACR functional class I-III.
4. At screening, active RA consisting of = 5 swollen and = 5 tender joints (28-joint count) and at least one of the following: Erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR)(Westergren) = 28 mm/hr; CRP = 15 mg /L.
5. Must be seropositive (defined as RF and/or anti-CCP positive) at screening.
6. Must be receiving stable dose and route of MTX (7.5-25 mg weekly) for at least 12 weeks prior to study day 1 with or without a history of anti-TNF use.
7. Women of childbearing potential must have a negative urine pregnancy test at screening and baseline. Women of childbearing potential are defined as women who are biologically capable of becoming pregnant, including women who are using contraceptives or whose sexual partners are either sterile or using contraceptives. Women of non-childbearing potential are defined as either postmenopausal (history of amenorrhea for = 52 weeks) or who are surgically sterile, such as after hysterectomy, bilateral oophorectomy, or tubal ligation (procedure performed = 1 year before screening). This information must be documented in the subject’s source documents.
8. Women of childbearing potential must agree and commit to the use of hormonal contraception, double-barrier contraception, or an intrauterine device throughout the entire study (defined as the signing of the ICF to the completion of the Conclusion of Subject Participation). Double-barrier contraception is defined as the use of a diaphragm, condom, or cervical cap plus a spermicidal vaginal foam, cream, jelly, suppository, or sponge. WOCBP who have a vasectomized partner are also eligible for participation. Vasectomized partners must have had their vasectomy more than 6 months before study day 1.
9. Men must agree and commit to use a medically acceptable form of contraception for the entire study (defined as the signing of the ICF to the completion of the Conclusion of Subject Participation) unless surgically sterile. Medically acceptable forms of contraception include properly used barrier forms of contraception.

4. Subjects with other objectively confirmed or suspected rheumatic diseases including, but not limited to, Lyme disease, psoriatic arthritis, spondyloarthropathy, systemic lupus erythematosus, systemic vasculitis, polymyositis, infectious arthritis, reactive arthritis or overlap syndrome.
5. Cancer, or a history of cancer (other than adequately resected cutaneous basal cell and squamous cell carcinomas or in situ cervical cancer).
