A Trial of NNC0109-0012, an Anti-IL-20 Biologic, in Patients With Active Rheumatoid Arthritis Who Are Inadequate Responders to Anti-TNFa Biologics

Type of Study
Rheumatology - Rheumatoid Arthritis
Short Description

This trial is conducted in Europe, North America and South America. The aim of this trial is to investigate the clinical efficacy of NNC0109-0012, a human monoclonal antibody, compared to placebo when administered as weekly s.c. (subcutaneous, under the skin) injections to patients with active rheumatoid arthritis (RA) who are inadequate responders to anti-TNFa biologics and are on a stable background of methotrexate (MTX) therapy.

  • Active RA, characterised by: a. above 5 tender and above 5 swollen joints based on a 28 joint count b. CRP (C-reactive protein) above or equal to 1.0 mg/dL (10 mg/L)
  • Patients must be anti-TNF (anti-Tumour Necrosis Factor) inadequate responders to at least one but not more than two anti-TNF biologics with active disease documented in medical records at the time of discontinuation

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patients with arthritis due to other autoimmune diseases than RA
  • Any active or ongoing bacterial infections within 4 weeks prior to screening visit, unless treated and resolved with appropriate therapy or any history of recurrent infections or conditions predisposing to chronic infections (e.g., bronchiectasis, chronic osteomyelitis)
  • History of severe, systemic viral or fungal infections within the past 6 months prior to screening visit, unless treated and/or resolved with appropriate therapy
  • Patients with active malignancy within the previous 5 years with the exception of adequately treated and cured basal or squamous cell carcinoma of the skin or cervical carcinoma in situ occurring more than 12 months prior to screening visit
  • Females of childbearing potential who are pregnant or breast feeding or intend to become pregnant
  • Any other disease or clinically significant abnormality in laboratory parameters which, according to the Investigator, might compromise the safety of the patient, interfere with participation in the trial or compromise the trial objective
