Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Participants With Physician Global Assessment (PGA) of Psoriasis Score of 'Clear' or 'Almost Clear' at Week 16 [ Time Frame: Week 16 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The PGA of psoriasis is scored on a 5-point scale, reflecting a global consideration of the erythema, induration, and scaling across all psoriatic lesions. Average erythema, induration, and scaling are scored separately over the whole body according to a 5-point severity scale (0 [no symptom] to 4 [severe symptom]). The total score was calculated as average of the 3 severity scores and rounded to the nearest whole number score to determine the PGA score and category (0=clear; 1=almost clear; 2=mild; 3=moderate; and 4=severe). PGA response was defined as 0 (clear) or 1 (almost clear).

  • Percentage of Participants With a Psoriasis Area and Severity Index 75 (PASI 75) Response at Week 16 [ Time Frame: Week 16 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The PASI quantifies the severity of a participant's psoriasis based on both, "lesion severity" and the "percent of body surface area (BSA)" affected. PASI is a composite scoring by the investigator of degree of erythema, induration, and scaling (each scored separately) for each of 4 body regions (head and neck, upper limbs, trunk [including axillae and groin], and lower limbs [including buttocks]), with adjustment for the percent of BSA involved for each body region and for the proportion of the body region to the whole body. The PASI score can vary in increments of 0.1 and range from 0.0 to 72.0, with higher scores representing greater severity of psoriasis. PASI 75 response was defined as at least a 75 percent (%) reduction in PASI relative to Baseline.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Percent Change From Baseline in Total Body Surface Area (BSA) With Psoriasis at Week 16 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 16 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Assessment of BSA with psoriasis was estimated by means of the handprint method, where the full palmar hand of the participant (fully extended palm, fingers and thumb together) represented approximately 1% of the total BSA. Body regions are assigned specific number of handprints with percentage [Head and neck = 10% (10 handprints), upper extremities = 20% (20 handprints), Trunk (including axillae and groin) = 30% (30 handprints), lower extremities (including buttocks) = 40% (40 handprints)]. The number of handprints of psoriatic skin in a body region was used to determine the extent (%) to which a body region was involved with psoriasis. The total BSA affected was the summation of individual regions affected.

  • Percentage of Participants With a Psoriasis Area and Severity Index 90 (PASI 90) Response at Week 16 [ Time Frame: Week 16 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

The PASI score can vary in increments of 0.1 and range from 0.0 to 72.0, with higher scores representing greater severity of psoriasis. PASI 90 response was defined as at least a 90% reduction in PASI relative to Baseline.

Each finger nail divided with imaginary lines into quadrants and scored for both nail matrix and nail bed psoriasis (range from 0 [absence of psoriasis] to 4 [presence of psoriasis in all 4 quadrants]). The total NAPSI score equals the sum of scores for all of the finger nails evaluated and ranges from 0 to 80. Higher scores = more severe psoriasis.

Each finger nail divided with imaginary lines into quadrants and scored for both nail matrix and nail bed psoriasis (range from 0 [absence of psoriasis] to 4 [presence of psoriasis in all 4 quadrants]). The total NAPSI score equals the sum of scores for all of the finger nails evaluated and ranges from 0 to 80. Higher scores = more severe psoriasis.

Each finger nail divided with imaginary lines into quadrants and scored for both nail matrix and nail bed psoriasis (range from 0 [absence of psoriasis] to 4 [presence of psoriasis in all 4 quadrants]). The total NAPSI score equals the sum of scores for all of the finger nails evaluated and ranges from 0 to 80. Higher scores = more severe psoriasis. NAPSI 75 response was defined as at least a 75% reduction in NAPSI relative to Baseline. Percentage of participants with NAPSI 75 response is reported.

Each finger nail divided with imaginary lines into quadrants and scored for both nail matrix and nail bed psoriasis (range from 0 [absence of psoriasis] to 4 [presence of psoriasis in all 4 quadrants]). The total NAPSI score equals the sum of scores for all of the finger nails evaluated and ranges from 0 to 80. Higher scores = more severe psoriasis. NAPSI 100 response was defined as at least a 100% reduction in NAPSI relative to Baseline. Percentage of participants with NAPSI 100 response is reported.

Baseline is the latest pre-dose measurement. Week 16 includes all reported log data to Week 16 (excluding Baseline). Participants may have response in more than 1 category. Data was not analyzed beyond Week 16 as per study team's decision because Week 0 - 16 period was considered sufficient to provide clear reflection of Ps-HCRU endpoint.

Baseline is the latest pre-dose measurement. Participants reported hours scheduled to work and hours absent from work. Percent absent hours = (hours absent from work/hours scheduled to work) multiplied by 100. Data was not analyzed beyond Week 16 as per study team's decision because Week 0 - 16 period was considered sufficient to provide clear reflection of Ps-HCRU endpoint.

  • Psoriasis Healthcare Resource Utilization Questionnaire (Ps-HCRU) - Psoriasis Affecting Ability to Work [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 16 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The Psoriasis Health Care Resource Utilization (Ps-HCRU) questionnaire is a short questionnaire designed to assess healthcare resource use and the impact of psoriasis on work. The first section assesses direct costs associated with healthcare resource use, and the second section assesses indirect costs associated with absenteeism due to psoriasis and the impact of psoriasis on productivity at work. Baseline is the latest pre-dose measurement. Participants rate how much psoriasis affected their ability to work by reporting a number from 0 to 10, where 0 means "ability to work was not affected by psoriasis", and 10 means "ability to work was completely affected by psoriasis". Data was not analyzed beyond Week 16 as per study team's decision because Week 0 - 16 period was considered sufficient to provide clear reflection of Ps-HCRU endpoint.

  • Family Dermatology Life Quality Index (FDLQI) Score [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 16, 52 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The FDLQI is a 10-item questionnaire that examine the impact of health-related quality of life issues associated with living with a person with a skin condition (example, emotional distress, personal relationships, reactions of other people, social life, caregiving) over the last month. The FDLQI need to be completed by a family member (for example, spouse or partner, parent) who currently lives with the participant. Each question is scored on a scale from 0 (Not at all/ Not relevant) to 3 (Very much). Total score is calculated by summing the score of each item resulting in a maximum score of '30' and a minimum score of '0'. Higher scores indicate greater impairment to quality of life.
