Primary Outcome Measures:
  • American College of Rheumatology criteria (ACR20) [ Time Frame: At 16 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    20% ACR response

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Proportion of subjects achieving Psoriasis Area Severity Index (PASI) 75 response rate [ Time Frame: Week 16 and Week 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Proportion of subjects achieving ACR50 and ACR70 response rate [ Time Frame: Week 16 and Week 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    50% and 70 % ACR response

  • Proportion of subjects achieving ACR20 response rate [ Time Frame: Week 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Proportion of subjects achieving a Health Assessment Questionnaire (HAQ) response [ Time Frame: Weeks 16 and Week 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    As measured by a reduction of at least 0.3 unit from baseline in HAQ index

  • Short Form (36) [SF-36] changes from baseline [ Time Frame: Baseline (Day 1) and Week 16 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Short Form (36) [SF-36] changes from baseline [ Time Frame: Baseline (Day 1) and Week 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Safety and tolerability as measured by adverse events (AEs), vital signs, physical examinations and safety lab values [ Time Frame: 24 Weeks (during double-blind period) ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Immunogenicity as measured by anti-BMS-945429 antibodies levels in serum [ Time Frame: 24 Weeks (during double-blind period) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
