The study evaluated the efficacy of AMG 827 compared with placebo as measured by the percent of improvement in PASI score at week 12. Subjects were randomized ina 1:1:1:1:1 ratio. Subjects randomized to receive AMG 827 received 70, 140, or 210 mg at day 1 and weeks 4 and 8.
Dose-response Efficacy Profile of AMG 827 Compared With Placebo as Measured by the Percent Improvement From Baseline in Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (PASI) Score at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Baseline and 12 weeks ]
At screening a subject would need to have a PASI score of equal to or greater than 12, so at week 12 they were assessed to see percentage of change from there baseline PASI score.
Secondary Outcome Measures :
Change in Percent of Body Surface Area (BSA) Affected by Psoriasis [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 12 ]
To evaluate the efficacy of AMG 827 as measured by the following: Body surface area (BSA) involvement at weeks 12. At the baseline of the study the subject would need to have at least a 10% BSA; at week 12 they were again assessed to see what change in percentage of BSA has occurred.
