      Trial Summary

      This is a Phase IIa/b double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized, parallel group, multicenter study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of RO7123520 as adjunctive therapy in participants with RA who are inadequately responding to standard-of-care (methotrexate and anti-TNF-alpha therapy). Part 1 of the study will evaluate safety. Part 2 will evaluate efficacy and safety. Part 3 will evaluate dose-ranging efficacy. Participants will have the option of continuing to the extension period of the study.

      • Participants must be taking stable dose of anti-TNF-alpha therapies
      • Participants on stable oral glucocorticoids within 6 weeks of planned randomization
      • Participants taking non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) intermittently (up to 2-3 times weekly) for short-term relief of pain and participants on regular NSAID use (on stable dose for ≥ 4 weeks)
      Exclusion Criteria
      • Parenteral glucocorticoids administration (intramuscular, IV) of ≥50 mg within 6 weeks or less than or equal to (≤) 50 milligrams (mg) within 4 weeks prior to planned randomization, or scheduled parenteral administrations during the study
