  Purpose

This double-blind, placebo-controlled study will be conducted at 5 study centers in the United States. Approximately 30 subjects with moderate to severe plaque-type psoriasis will take part. The study will consist of a screening period of up to 21 days, a 12-week treatment period with 7 on-treatment clinic visits (approximately one every 2 weeks) and a post-dosing follow-up clinic visit approximately 30 days after the last dose of study drug is taken.

Subjects will be randomized to receive either 250mg, 500mg or 1000mg of study drug or placebo. Study drug will be taken by mouth on a full stomach, every day for 84 days.

Vital signs, clinical laboratory results (hematology, chemistry, and urinalysis), ECGs and physical examinations will be assessed at periodic intervals from Day 1 through Day 84.

A skin biopsy will be taken at the beginning and the end of the dosing period to evaluate any effects of the study drug on psoriasis. Investigators will perform other psoriasis evaluations (including the Psoriasis Area and Severity Index [PASI] and the Physician's Global Assessment [PGA] at 5 different times throughout the study to quantify the effects of SRT2104 on psoriasis activity.

Subjects will complete questionnaires throughout the study, to document their sense of well-being and mood at 4 different times during the study.

Five blood samples will be obtained at different timepoints during the study, to measure the amount of SRT2104 in the body.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Assessment of Clinical Activity by Improvement Score (Using Krueger Criteria): Number of Participants With Good or Excellent Improvement Score Based on Histological Assessments of Skin Biopsies After 12 Weeks of Exposure [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
    According to the Krueger criteria, improvement score is classified as Good improvement defined as reduction in epidermal thickness by at least 30% normalized keratinocyte differentiation but most keratinocytes still express K16. Excellent improvement defined as reduction in epidermal thickness to normal or almost normal normalized keratinocyte differentiation and absent keratinocyte expression of K16. No improvement defined as no improvement in epidermal thickness keratinocyte differentiation or K16 expression on keratinocytes. A binomial response was defined for each participant according to whether the participant had an improvement score of "good or excellent improvement" (response=1) or not (response=0). Number of participants with good or excellent improvement score are presented.

  • Number of Participants With Any Adverse Events (AE) and Serious Adverse Events (SAE) [ Time Frame: Up to Follow-up (Day 114) ]
    An AE is any untoward medical occurrence in a participant or clinical investigation participant, temporally associated with the use of a medicinal product, whether or not considered related to the medicinal product. An AE can therefore be any unfavorable and unintended sign (including an abnormal laboratory finding), symptom, or disease (new or exacerbated) temporally associated with the use of a medicinal product. For marketed medicinal products, this also includes failure to produce expected benefits (i.e., lack of efficacy), abuse or misuse. SAE is any untoward medical occurrence that, at any dose results in death, is life-threatening, requires hospitalization or prolongation of existing hospitalization, results in disability/incapacity, or is a congenital anomaly/birth defect or is medically significant. The AE category in the data table includes participants who experienced serious or non-serious adverse events or both.

  • Number of Participants With Hematology and Coagulation Abnormalities of Potential Clinical Concern [ Time Frame: Up to Follow-up (Day 114) ]
    Hematology parameters included hemoglobin, hematocrit, red blood cell count, red cell distribution width, mean corpuscular volume, mean corpuscular hemoglobin, mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration, platelets, white blood cell count and complete white blood cell count differential. Coagulation parameters included activated partial thromboplastin time and prothrombin time/international normalized ratio. The potential clinical concern range for hematology parameters were: white blood cell count (low: <0.67x10^9/Liter x lower limit of normal [LLN] and high: >1.82x10^9/L x upper limit of normal [ULN]), neutrophil count: (low: <0.83x10^9/Liter x LLN), hemoglobin (low: <0.85 gram/Liter x LLN and high: >1.03 gram/Liter x ULN for males and >1.13 gram/Liter x ULN for females), hematocrit with units ratio (high: >1.02 x ULN for males and >1.17 x ULN for females), platelet count (low: <0.67x10^9/Liter x LLN and high >1.57x10^9/Liter x ULN) and lymphocytes (low: <0.81x10^9/Liter x LLN).

  • Number of Participants With Clinical Chemistry Abnormalities of Potential Clinical Importance [ Time Frame: Up to Follow-up (Day 114) ]
    The potential clinical concern range for clinical chemistry parameters were: Albumin:(low: <0.86 gram/Liter x LLN), Calcium:(low: <0.91 millimol/Liter [mmol/L] x LLN and high: >1.06 mmol/L x ULN), Creatinine: (high: >1.3 mmol /L x ULN), Glucose: (low: <0.71 mmol/L x LLN, high: >1.41 mmol/L x ULN), Magnesium: (low: <0.63 mmol/L x LLN, high: >1.03 mmol/L x ULN), Phosphorus: (low: <0.8 mmol/L x LLN, high: >1.14 mmol/L x ULN), Sodium: (low: <0.96 mmol/L x LLN, high: >1.03 mmol/L x ULN), Urea: (high: >1.5 mmol/L x ULN), Gamma glutamyl transferase: (high: >2 International units per L x ULN), Total bilirubin (high: 1.5 x ULN), both alanine amino transferase and aspartate amino transferase (high:≥ 2x ULN Units/L) and Bicarbonate: (low: <18 mmol/L and high: >32 mmol/L). Number of participants with clinical chemistry abnormalities of potential clinical importance are presented.

  • Number of Participants With Abnormal Electrocardiogram (ECG) Values [ Time Frame: Up to Follow-up (Day 114) ]
    12-lead ECG was performed in the rested state with the participant in the supine position with ECG leads on for at least 5 minutes prior to ECG recording. ECGs included PR (PQ), QRS, QT and QT corrected by Bazett's formula (QTcB), QT corrected by Fridericia's formula (QTcF) intervals. Identification of any conduction abnormalities were recorded in the eCRF. If a participant's QTc intervals were prolonged, then the ECG was done in triplicate with results reported as an average of the three ECGs. Number of participants with abnormal electrocardiogram (ECG) values are presented.

  • Number of Participants With Vital Signs of Potential Clinical Importance [ Time Frame: Up to Follow-up (Day 114) ]
    Vital sign assessments included measurements of resting heart rate and blood pressure. Potential clinical concern range for systolic blood pressure: <85 and >160 millimeter of mercury (mmHg), for diastolic: <45 and >100 mmHg and heart rate: <40 and >110 beats per minute. Number of participants with vital signs of potential clinical importance are presented.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants With Clinical Activity in Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (PASI) Score After 4, 8, and 12 Weeks of Exposure [ Time Frame: Weeks 4, 8 and 12 ]
    PASI score was determined by evaluation of body surface area (BSA) covered by plaque psoriasis in 4 areas (head/neck, arms, trunk and legs with area score of 0.1, 0.2, 0.3 and 0.4 respectively). This test included combination of both degree of involvement (assessed as per the % of affected body area using a 7-point scale such that 0=0% involvement, 1=1-9%, 2=10-29%, 3=30-49%, 4=50-69%, 5=70-89% and 6=90-100%) and severity (evaluated individually using a 5-point scale that ranged as 0=No evidence of sign, 1=slight evidence, 2=moderate evidence, 3=marked evidence and 4=very marked, most severe evidence of sign) of erythema, induration and desquamation in each of the same 4 areas. PASI score ranges from 0 (no psoriasis) to 72 (worse psoriasis). Final PASI=(sum of severity score for each area)x(% body affected score x area score).

  • Summary of Physician's Global Assessment (PGA) Score After 4, 8 and 12 Weeks of Exposure [ Time Frame: Weeks 4, 8 and 12 ]
    The severity of psoriatic lesions over the whole body were assessed by the investigator using the PGA scoring system. A 0 to 6 point rating scale was used, as follows: 0 = Clear (no signs of psoriasis), 1 = Almost clear (slight elevation, scale and/or erythema), 2 = Mild (mild plaque elevation, scale and/or erythema), 3 = Mild to moderate (mild plaque elevation with moderate erythema and/or scale), 4 = Moderate (moderate plaque elevation, scale and/or erythema), 5 = Moderate to severe (marked plaque elevation, scale and/or erythema), 6 = Severe (very marked plaque elevation, scale and/or erythema). Higher scores indicated worse psoriasis. Participants in the SRT2104 0.25 g dose group inadvertently used an incorrect version of the PGA scale and thus do not have PGA data available. Participants in the SRT2104 0.25 g dose group inadvertently used an incorrect version of the PGA scale and thus do not have PGA data available.

  • Area Under Curve (AUC) of 12 Weeks of Dosing With 0.25 g, 0.5 g and 1.0 g SRT2104 in the Fed State in Participants [ Time Frame: Pre-dose (30 minutes or less before dosing: 1 sample), 0.5 to 2 hours and 3 to 6 hours post-dose (1 sample), 6 to 22 hours post-dose (2 samples) up to Week 12 ]
    A total of five blood samples (6 milliliter [mL] each) were obtained from each participant up to Week 12, for determination of SRT2104 plasma concentrations. No two samples were separated by less than an hour. One pre-dose sample was collected prior to taking study medication (30 minutes or less before dosing) at any Visit 4 (Week 4), Visit 6 (Week 8) or Visit 8 (Week 12). A single pharmacokinetic (PK) sample was collected in the time interval of 0.5 to 2 hours post-dose and also 3 to 6 hours post-dose at any Visit 4 (Week 4), Visit 6 (Week 8) or Visit 8 (Week 12). Two PK samples were collected in the time interval of 6 to 22 hours post dose at any Visit 4 (Week 4), Visit 6 (Week 8) or Visit 8 (Week 12).

  • Maximum Plasma Concentration (Cmax) of 12 Weeks of Dosing With 250 Milligrams (mg), 500 mg and 1000 mg SRT2104 in the Fed State in Participants [ Time Frame: One sample: Pre-dose (30 minutes or less before dosing), One sample: 0.5 to 2 hours post-dose and 3 to 6 hours post-dose and 2 samples 6 to 22 hours post dose, at any Visit 4 (Day 28 or Week 4), Visit 6 (Day 56 or Week 8) or Visit 8 (Day 84 or Week 12) ]
    A total of five blood samples (6 mL each) were obtained from each participant at any Visit 4 (Day 28 or Week 4), Visit 6 (Day 56 or Week 8) or Visit 8 (Day 84 or Week 12), for determination of SRT2104 plasma concentrations. No two samples were separated by less than an hour. One pre-dose sample was collected prior to taking study medication (30 minutes or less before dosing) at any Visit 4 (Day 28 or Week 4), Visit 6 (Day 56 or Week 8) or Visit 8 (Day 84 or Week 12). A single pharmacokinetic (PK) sample was collected in the time interval of 0.5 to 2 hours post-dose and also 3 to 6 hours post-dose at any Visit 4 (Day 28 or Week 4), Visit 6 (Day 56 or Week 8) or Visit 8 (Day 84 or Week 12). Two PK samples were collected in the time interval of 6 to 22 hours post dose at any Visit 4 (Day 28 or Week 4), Visit 6 (Day 56 or Week 8) or Visit 8 (Day 84 or Week 12).

  • Change From Baseline in Fibroblast Growth Factor 21 (FGF21) as an Indicator of the Pharmacodynamic Effects of SRT2104 [ Time Frame: Baseline (Day 1) and Days 28, 56 and 84 ]
    The pharmacodynamic effects of SRT2104 was measured by biomarkers of psoriatic disease activity and/or sirtuin pathway activation (hsCRP and FGF21) in blood samples. Baseline was Day 1. Change from Baseline was calculated by subtracting Baseline values from post-Baseline values.

  • Change From Baseline in High-sensitivity C-reactive Protein (hsCRP) as an Indicator of the Pharmacodynamic Effects of SRT2104 [ Time Frame: Baseline (Day 1) and Days 28, 56 and 84 ]
    The pharmacodynamic effects of SRT2104 was measured by biomarkers of psoriatic disease activity and/or sirtuin pathway activation (hsCRP and FGF21) in blood samples. Baseline was Day 1. Change from Baseline was calculated by subtracting Baseline values from post-Baseline values.
