Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: secukinumab 150mg
201 subjects were randomized in a 1:1:1 ratio to secukinumab either 150 mg or 300 mg, or placebo. Subjects assigned to secukinumab 150 mg were dosed weekly for the first five weeks, then every four weeks up to and including Week 128. To maintain blinding, subjects received additional placebo injections at Weeks 17, 18 and 19. All doses of study treatment were administered by sub-cutaneous injections.
Biological: secukinumab 150 mg
Study treatment were provided in pre-filled syringes of secukinumab 150 mg in 1 mL. Each dosing consiseds of one secukinumab 150 mg s.c. injection plus one placebo secukinumab s.c. injection and took place once weekly during five weeks (at Baseline, Weeks 1, 2, 3 and 4), then once every four weeks starting at Week 8 until Week 128 inclusive. In order to maintain the blinding, patients also received two placebo injections at Weeks 17, 18 and 19. Patients self-administered study treatment under the supervision of site personnel when injections occur during study visits, or at home otherwise.
Other Name: AIN457 150 mg

Experimental: secukinumab 300 mg
201 subjects were randomized in a 1:1:1 ratio to secukinumab either 150 mg or 300 mg, or placebo. Subjects assigned to secukinumab 300 mg were dosed weekly for the first five weeks and then every four weeks up to and including Week 128. In order to maintain the blinding, subjects received additional placebo injections at Weeks 17, 18 and 19. All doses of study treatment were administered by sub-cutaneous injections.
Biological: secukinumab 300 mg
Study treatment were provided in pre-filled syringes of secukinumab 150 mg in 1 mL. Each dosing consisted of two secukinumab 150 mg s.c. injections and took ke place once weekly during five weeks (at Baseline, Weeks 1, 2, 3 and 4), then once every four weeks starting at Week 8 until Week 128 inclusive. In order to maintain the blinding, patients also receives two placebo injections at Weeks 17, 18 and 19. Patients self-administered study treatment under the supervision of site personnel when injections occur during study visits, or at home otherwise.
Other Name: AIN457 300 mg

Placebo Comparator: Placebo
201 subjects were randomized in a 1:1:1 ratio to secukinumab either 150 mg or 300 mg, or placebo. Subjects on placebo were dosed weekly for 5 weeks then once every 4 weeks. At Week 16, ppIGA responders continued to receive placebo weekly for 5 weeks starting at Week 16, then every 4 weeks up to and including Week 76 while ppIGA non-responders were randomized in a 1:1 ratio to secukinumab either 150 mg or 300mg weekly for 5 weeks, starting at Week 16, then every 4 weeks up to and including Week 128. At Week 80, subjects on placebo were either terminated their participation, if ppIGA responders, or randomized in a 1:1 ratio to secukinumab either 150 mg or 300 mg once every 4 weeks until Week 128 inclusive. All doses of study treatment were administered by sub-cutaneous injections.
Biological: Placebo
Placebo were provided in 1 mL pre-filled syringes. Each dosing consisted of two s.c. injections and took place once weekly during five weeks (at Baseline, Weeks 1, 2, 3 and 4), then at Week 8 and at Week 12. At Week 16, ppIGA responders continued on placebo with dosing at Weeks 16, 17, 18, 19 and 20, then once every four weeks from Week 24 until Week 76 inclusive. At Week 80, ppIGA responders ended their participation in the study while ppIGA non-responders were re-randomized, to receive 150 mg or 300 mg secukinumab once every four weeks starting at Week 80 until Week 128 inclusive. Patients self-administered study treatment under the supervision of site personnel when injections occur during study visits, or at home otherwise.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percentages of Participants With Palmoplantar Investigator Global Assessmnet (ppIGA) 0 or 1 Response After 16 Weeks of Treatment [ Time Frame: Week 16 ]
    palmoplantar Investigator's Global Assessment (ppIGA) response after 16 weeks of treatment. To be considered a ppIGA responder at Week 16, a subject must have ppIGA of 0 or 1 at Week 16 and a reduction of at least 2 points on the ppIGA scale from baseline.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percentages of Participants With Palmoplantar Investigator Global Assessment (ppIGA) 0 or 1 Response - Treatment Period I [ Time Frame: Week 1, week 2, week 4, week, 8, week 12, week 16 ]

    ppIGA: Palmoplantar Ivestigator's Global Assessment. The IGA mod 2011 rating scale: The IGA mod 2011 scale is static, i.e. it referred exclusively to the participant's disease at the time of the assessment, and did not compare with any of the participant's previous disease states at previous visits. The scores are: 0 = clear, 1 = almost clear, 2 = mild, 3 = moderate and 4 = severe.

    Based on this scale, a patient was considered as an IGA 0 or 1 responder if they achieved a score of 0 or 1 and improved by at least 2 points on the IGA scale at a given time point compared to their score at randomization (baseline).


  2. Percentages of Subjects With ppIGA 0 or 1 Response (Observed Cases) - Treatment Period II [ Time Frame: Week 16, Week 20, Week 28, Week 32, Week 64, Week 132 ]

    ppIGA: Palmoplantar Ivestigator's Global Assessment. The IGA mod 2011 rating scale: The IGA mod 2011 scale is static, i.e. it referred exclusively to the participant's disease at the time of the assessment, and did not compare with any of the participant's previous disease states at previous visits. The scores are: 0 = clear, 1 = almost clear, 2 = mild, 3 = moderate and 4 = severe.

    Based on this scale, a patient was considered as an IGA 0 or 1 responder if they achieved a score of 0 or 1 and improved by at least 2 points on the IGA scale at a given time point compared to their score at randomization (baseline).


  3. Percentages of Subjects With ppIGA 0 or 1 Response (Observed Cases) - Entire Treatment Period [ Time Frame: Week 16, Week 24, Week 28, Week 80 ]

    ppIGA: Palmoplantar Ivestigator's Global Assessment. The IGA mod 2011 rating scale: The IGA mod 2011 scale is static, i.e. it referred exclusively to the participant's disease at the time of the assessment, and did not compare with any of the participant's previous disease states at previous visits. The scores are: 0 = clear, 1 = almost clear, 2 = mild, 3 = moderate and 4 = severe.

    Based on this scale, a patient was considered as an IGA 0 or 1 responder if they achieved a score of 0 or 1 and improved by at least 2 points on the IGA scale at a given time point compared to their score at randomization (baseline).


  4. Absolute Change From Baseline for Palmoplantar Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (ppPASI) Score -Treatment Period I [ Time Frame: Week 1, Week 2, Week 4, Week 8, Week 12, Week 16 ]
    Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (PASI) is a combined assessment of lesion severity and affected area into a single score: 0 (no disease) to 72 (maximal disease).

  5. Absolute Change From Baseline for Palmoplantar Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (ppPASI) Score (Observed Cases) - Entire Treatment Set [ Time Frame: Week 16, Week 32, Week 80, Week 132 ]
    Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (PASI) is a combined assessment of lesion severity and affected area into a single score: 0 (no disease) to 72 (maximal disease).

  6. Number of Participants Developing Anti-secukinumab Antibodies [ Time Frame: Over time up to week 132 ]
    To investigate the development of immunogenicity against secukinumab

  • Forms of psoriasis other than chronic plaque type psoriasis (e.g., pustular psoriasis, palmoplantar pustulosis, acrodermatitis of Hallopeau, erythrodermic and guttate psoriasis)
  • Drug-induced psoriasis (e.g. new onset or current exacerbation from β-blockers, calcium channel inhibitors or lithium)
  • Ongoing use of prohibited treatments (e.g. topical or systemic corticosteroids (CS), UV therapy). Washout periods do apply.
  • Prior exposure to secukinumab (AIN457) or any other biological drug directly targeting IL-17 or the IL-17 receptor
  • Use of any investigational drugs within 4 weeks prior to study treatment initiation or within a period of 5 half-lives of the investigational treatment, whichever is longer
  • Active ongoing inflammatory diseases other than psoriasis that might confound the evaluation of the benefit of secukinumab therapy
  • History of hypersensitivity to constituents of the study treatment
