A Study to Evaluate Infliximab in Subjects With Moderate-to-Severe Psoriasis Not Responding to Standard or Biologic Therapy (Study P04612AM4)(COMPLETED) (ESAQUALITY)
Subjects with moderate-to-severe chronic psoriasis not responding to standard or biologic therapy will be eligible to enroll in this study. Subjects will receive infliximab infusions (5 mg/kg of body weight) at Weeks 0, 2, 6, and 14 followed by a 12-week follow-up period. The efficacy of infliximab will be evaluated by the Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (PASI).

|Official Title:||A Multi-center, Open Label Trial Evaluating the Efficacy , SAfety and the Impact on QUAlity of Life of Infliximab TherapY in Patients With Moderate-to-severe Psoriasis Not Responding to Standard or Biologic Therapy|
- Number of Participants Who Achieve a Greater Than or Equal to 75% Improvement in Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (PASI) Score [ Time Frame: 10 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]PASI 75 response is defined as participants who achieved at least a 75% improvement in PASI score from Baseline to Week 10. The PASI is a system used for assessing and grading the severity of psoriatic lesions and their responses to therapy. The PASI produces a numeric score that can range from 0 to 72 (the higher the number, the worse the disease).
