The main objective of the study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of six escalating doses of SCIO-469 in RA patients. SCIO-469 belongs to a new class of treatments that inhibit p38 kinase, a stimulatory modulator of pro-inflammatory factors including tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha), interleukin-1 (IL-1), and cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), all of which are known to contribute to both symptoms and disease progression in patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis.
This multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, dose-escalating study will assess the safety, tolerability, efficacy, PK and pharmacodynamics of SCIO-469 in patients with active RA who also are receiving methotrexate. A total of 120 subjects will be randomly assigned and treated in one of seven dose groups with the total daily dose of SCIO-469 ranging from 0 to 180 mg. Dose groups will be staggered over four Treatment Periods. Safety and available PK data from a Treatment Period with lower dose groups will be reviewed prior to initiating higher dose groups in the next Treatment Period. Placebo subjects will be randomized in all Treatment Periods. Study drug will be taken for 30 days. Each subject will be followed for approximately 4 weeks after completing the 30-day Treatment Period. Safety will be assessed by way of physical examination, medical history, vital signs, orthostatic vital signs, chest radiograph, 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG), clinical laboratory evaluations (including serum chemistry, hematology, qualitative urinalysis, and liver function tests), purified protein derivative test for tuberculosis, neurological tests, adverse events, and concomitant medications through out the study. Study drug will be administered for 30 days at one of the following dosage strengths; 30 mg, 60 mg, 90 mg. One group of subjects will get 60 mg for one week followed by 120 for one week followed by 180 mg for two weeks.

The purpose of this study is to assess the pharmacokinetics of two oral dosing regimens of SCIO-469, with and without methotrexate, in patients with active rheumatoid arthritis.

Arthritis in children, with onset before 16 years of age. The terms juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA) and juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) refer to classification systems for chronic arthritis in children. Only one subtype of juvenile arthritis (polyarticular-onset, rheumatoid factor-positive) clinically resembles adult rheumatoid arthritis and is considered its childhood equivalent.
Rheumatoid arthritis of children occurring in three major subtypes defined by the symptoms present during the first six months following onset: systemic-onset (Still's Disease, Juvenile-Onset), polyarticular-onset, and pauciarticular-onset. Adult-onset cases of Still's disease (STILL'S DISEASE, ADULT-ONSET) are also known. Only one subtype of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (polyarticular-onset, rheumatoid factor-positive) clinically resembles adult rheumatoid arthritis and is considered its childhood equivalent.
A variable mixture of the mono- and disodium salts of gold thiomalic acid used mainly for its anti-inflammatory action in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. It is most effective in active progressive rheumatoid arthritis and of little or no value in the presence of extensive deformities or in the treatment of other forms of arthritis.
Systemic-onset rheumatoid arthritis in adults. It differs from classical rheumatoid arthritis in that it is more often marked by acute febrile onset, and generalized lymphadenopathy and hepatosplenomegaly are more prominent.
