Clinical Details

Official title: A Multi Centre, Double Blind, Placebo-controlled Study to Evaluate the Non Steroidal Anti-inflamatory Drugs (NSAIDS) Sparing Effect of Etanercept in Adult Subjects With Axial Involvement of Spondyloarthritis

Study design: Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary outcome: To compare the NSAID sparing effect of etanercept with that of placebo in adult subjects with axial involvement of SpA after 8 weeks of active treatment in comparison to Baseline (NSAID ASAS score).

Secondary outcome:

The area under the curve (AUC) between randomization and Week 8 for the NSAID ASAS score.

The efficacy of etanercept for symptom control compared with that of placebo at Weeks 4 and 8.

The change in concomitant NSAID treatment requirement between Baseline and Week 16 in the group originally receiving etanercept.

The change in concomitant NSAID treatment requirement between Week 8 and Week 16 in the group originally receiving placebo

The efficacy of etanercept in the group receiving etanercept from Baseline up to Week 16.

The change in efficacy in the group originally receiving placebo group from Week 8 to Week 16

The safety and tolerability of etanercept in this subject population
