Participant inclusion criteria

1. Male or female subjects, aged 18 - 75 years inclusive, with stable RA based on American College of Rheumatology (ACR) criteria for at least 3 months (subjects do not need to have active RA for Stage A of the study)
2. Subjects must have been on a stable dose of methotrexate (7.5 to 25 mg/week) taken orally, subcutaneously, or intramuscularly, but not intravenously, for greater than or equal to 8 weeks prior to randomisation
3. If a subject is also taking sulfasalazine or hydroxychloroquine, the subject must have been on a stable dose of these medications for at least 8 weeks prior to randomisation
4. If a subject is on corticosteroid therapy, the dose must not exceed 10 mg prednisone or equivalent and the subject must have been on a stable dose for at least 4 weeks prior to randomisation
5. Willing and able to give written Informed Consent and to comply with the requirements of the study protocol
6. Negative result of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) screen, the hepatitis B screen, and the hepatitis C screen
7. Judged to be otherwise healthy by the Investigator, based on medical history, physical examination (including electrocardiogram [ECG]), and clinical laboratory assessments
8. Female subjects of childbearing potential, and male subjects with partners of childbearing potential, may participate if adequate contraception is used during, and for at least the four weeks after, any administration of study medication. Adequate contraception is defined as usage by at least one of the partners of a barrier method of contraception, together with usage by the female partner, commencing at least three months prior to screening, of a stable regimen of any form of hormonal contraception or an intra-uterine device. Use of abstinence alone is not considered adequate. Use of a barrier method alone is considered adequate only if the male partner was vasectomized at least six months prior to Screening. Use of a double-barrier method of contraception is acceptable.
