  1. Percent change from baseline in biomarkers transformed in rank was compared between responder and nonresponder patients at week 24 using an analysis of variance (ANOVA)-type method, with response, visit, and response-by-visit interaction as fixed effects, rank-transformed baseline biomarker value and rank-transformed baseline biomarker-value-by-visit interaction as fixed covariates, and assuming an unstructured covariance structure. The model was run separately by treatment group (sarilumab 200 mg q2w and placebo)
