A Randomized Double Blind Placebo Controlled Study To Evaluate Efficacy And Safety Of Cp-690,550 In Children From 2 To Less Than 18 Years Old With Systemic Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (Jia) With Active Systemic Features

A randomized withdrawal study in which responders to open-label treatment with tofacitinib will be randomized in a 1:1 ratio to tofacitinib or placebo in a double-blind phase.
