Drug Placebo plus MTX

All patients had a foundation MTX therapy.The researchers evaluated the efficacy of the patient in 12 week.study investigator evaluate the patients of curative effect . The researchers evaluated the efficacy of the patient in 12 week.Evaluation of efficacy in patients if not get the ACR20 response, adjust the treatment plan given the test drug.Test group continue to the test drug,placebo group switch to the test drug.

  • Other names: MTX=Methotrexate

Drug RC18 160 mg plus MTX

  • Other names: RC18, MTX=Methotrexate

Placebo Comparator Experimental

Placebo SC plus MTX. Patients received placebo SC weekly administered subcutaneously for 24 times.All patients had a foundation MTX therapy, MTX dose should be stable, not to adjust the dose.The researchers evaluated the efficacy of the patient in 12 week.Evaluation of efficacy in patients if not get the ACR20 response, adjust the treatment plan given the test drug.Test group continue to the test drug,placebo group switch to the test drug.

Experimental: RC18 160 mg plus MTX Experimental

Patients received the test group RC18 160mg weekly administered subcutaneously for 24 times. All patients had a foundation MTX therapy, MTX dose should be stable, not to adjust the dose.
