Summary
Brief summary
Experiments in animals and research data in humans strongly suggests that IL-17A is involved in the formation of joint inflammation in rheumatoid arthritis. The primary purpose of this study is to establish the safety of blocking the effects of IL-17A with SCH 900117 in healthy subjects and in patients with rheumatoid arthritis.
