This study will test the clinical effectiveness and safety of two orally administered doses of apremilast compared to placebo in Japanese patients with moderate-to-severe plaque-type psoriasis.

Apremilast (CC-10004) is a new oral agent that is under clinical development for the treatment of inflammatory autoimmune disorders such as psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, rheumatoid arthritis, and Behçet disease.

  • Topical therapy within 2 weeks prior to randomization or systemic therapy for psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis within 4 weeks prior to randomization.
  • Use of etretinate within 2 years prior to randomization for females of child bearing potential (FCBP) or within 6 months for males, and within 4 weeks prior to randomization for non-FCBP.
  • Use of phototherapy (ie, UVB, PUVA) within 4 weeks prior to randomization or prolonged sun exposure or use of tanning booths or other ultraviolet light sources.
