      Trial Summary

      This is a multicenter, Phase II, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, active comparator (Cohort 1 only), parallel-group, dose-ranging study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of GDC-0853 in participants with moderate to severe active RA and an inadequate response to previous methotrexate (MTX) therapy (Cohort 1) or MTX and tumor necrosis factor (TNF) therapy who may have also had exposure to no more than one non-TNF inhibitor biologic (Cohort 2).

      • For MTX-inadequate response (IR) participants: must have had an inadequate response to MTX
      • For TNF-IR participants: must have had an inadequate response or intolerance to previous treatment with at least 1 and no more than 2 biologic TNF-alpha inhibitors and may have also been exposed to no more than one biologic non-TNF-alpha inhibitor
