Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Participants Achieving a 75% Improvement From Baseline in Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (PASI) Score at Week 24 [ Time Frame: Week 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    PASI: Combined assessment of lesion severity and area affected into single score; range: 0(no disease) to 72(maximal disease). Body was divided into 4 sections (head, arms, trunk, legs); each area was scored by itself and scores were combined for final PASI. For each section percent area of skin involved was estimated: 0 (0%) to 6 (90 - 100%), and severity was estimated by clinical signs: erythema, induration, and desquamation; scale: 0 (none) to 4 (maximum). Final PASI = sum of severity parameters for each section * area score * weight of section (head: 0.1, arms: 0.2, body: 0.3, legs: 0.4).


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Participants Achieving a 50% Improvement From Baseline in Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (PASI) Score at Each Visit Through Week 24 [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    PASI: Combined assessment of lesion severity and area affected into single score; range: 0(no disease) to 72(maximal disease). Body was divided into 4 sections (head, arms, trunk, legs); each area was scored by itself and scores were combined for final PASI. For each section percent area of skin involved was estimated: 0 (0%) to 6 (90 - 100%), and severity was estimated by clinical signs: erythema, induration, and desquamation; scale: 0 (none) to 4 (maximum). Final PASI = sum of severity parameters for each section * area score * weight of section (head: 0.1, arms: 0.2, body: 0.3, legs: 0.4).

  • Change From Baseline in Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (PASI) Score at Each Visit Through Week 24 [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    PASI: Combined assessment of lesion severity and area affected into single score; range: 0(no disease) to 72(maximal disease). Body was divided into 4 sections (head, arms, trunk, legs); each area scored by itself and scores were combined for final PASI. For each section, percent area of skin involved estimated: 0 (0%) to 6 (90 - 100%), and severity was estimated by clinical signs: erythema, induration, and desquamation; scale: 0 (none) to 4 (maximum). Final PASI = sum of severity parameters for each section * area score * weight of section (head: 0.1, arms: 0.2, body: 0.3, legs: 0.4).

  • Time to Achieve Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (PASI) 50, PASI 75 and PASI 100 Over 24 Weeks [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Time taken to achieve first PASI was calculated using Kaplan-Meier estimate and presented as median. PASI 50=50% improvement from baseline in PASI; PASI 75=75% improvement from baseline in PASI; PASI 90=90% improvement from baseline in PASI; PASI 100=100% improvement from baseline in PASI. PASI score percent improvement =100*(baseline score - visit score)/baseline score.

  • Percentage of Participants Achieving the Physician Global Assessment (PGA) of Psoriasis Responses of Clear (0) at Each Visit Through Week 24 [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    PGA of Psoriasis: score based on dermatologist's assessment of head, scalp, and neck psoriasis (averaged over all lesions). The PGA of Psoriasis scale ranges from 0 (no psoriasis) to 5 (severe disease). PGA score of 0 = Status of Clear.

  • Percentage of Participants Achieving the Physician Global Assessment (PGA) of Psoriasis Responses Clear/Almost Clear (0, 1) at Each Visit Through Week 24 [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    PGA of Psoriasis: score based on dermatologist's assessment of head, scalp, and neck psoriasis (averaged over all lesions). The PGA of Psoriasis scale ranges from 0 (no psoriasis) to 5 (severe disease). PGA score of 0 = Status of Clear; 1 = Almost Clear.

  • Percentage of Participants Achieving the Physician Global Assessment (PGA) of Psoriasis Responses of Clear/Almost Clear/Mild (0, 1, 2) at Each Visit Through Week 24 [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    PGA of Psoriasis: score based on dermatologist's assessment of head, scalp, and neck psoriasis (averaged over all lesions). The PGA of Psoriasis scale ranges from 0 (no psoriasis) to 5 (severe disease). PGA score of 0 = Status of Clear; 1 = Almost Clear and 2 = Mild.

  • Time to First Physician Global Assessment (PGA) of Psoriasis of Clear/Almost Clear (0, 1), or Clear/Almost Clear/Mild (0, 1, 2) Over 24 Weeks [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Time taken to achieve PGA was calculated using Kaplan-Meier estimate and presented as median. Assessment of clear or almost clear or Mild = PGA score of 0 (no evidence) or 1 (minimal/faint) or 2 (mild plaque elevation, mild fine scales predominates or light red coloration).

  • Change From Baseline in Physician Global Assessment (PGA) of Psoriasis at Each Visit Through Week 24 [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    PGA of Psoriasis: score based on dermatologist's assessment of disease averaged over all lesions of head, scalp, and neck. Overall lesions were graded for induration, erythema, and scaling; range: 0 (no evidence) to 5 (severe). The sum of the 3 scores was divided by 3 to obtain a final PGA score. Higher scores indicate greater severity of disease.

  • Change From Baseline in Percent Body Surface Area (BSA) Involvement of Psoriasis at Each Visit Through Week 24 [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change From Baseline in the Photographed Image of Lesions in Selected Participants [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Compare the before and after photographs with the clinical assessments (Psoriasis Area and Severity Index, Physician's Global Assessment) taken at the same time for illustration purposes. Measured as yes or no for change.

  • Percentage of Participants Not Using Topical Preparations at Each Visit From Week 12 Through Week 24 [ Time Frame: From Week 12 to Week 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Moderate topical steroids to very potent topical steroids, topical vitamin D analogs, topical steroids in combination with vitamin D analogs, and anthralin compounds were prohibited for 14 days before the baseline visit until week 12.

  • Mean Psoriasis Subject Satisfaction Questionnaire (PSSQ) Scores at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Week 12 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    PSSQ: participant's assessment that includes 18 items, 16 items (1-16) scored using Likert score with scores from 0 (very dissatisfied) to 4 (very satisfied) and 5 ( never had this problem). Only those participants who do not have score of 5 at baseline included in the item 1-16 analyses. Two items (17, 18) are with Yes/No answers. The scores of items 1-16 for change from baseline are summarized here.
