Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to demonstrate equivalent efficacy of GP2015 and Enbrel® in patients with moderate to severe chronic plaque-type psoriasis with respect to PASI 75 response rate at Week 12.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Chronic Stable Plaque Psoriasis Drug: GP2015 Etanercept Drug: Enbrel Phase 3

Detailed Description:
The purpose of this confirmatory safety and efficacy study (GP15-302) was to demonstrate equivalence in efficacy and similarity in safety and immunogenicity of GP2015 and Enbrel (EU-authorized) in patients with moderate to severe chronic plaque-type psoriasis and to evaluate the effects of repeated switching between GP2015 and Enbrel on efficacy, overall safety, and immunogenicity. Since only EU-authorized Enbrel was utilized in this study, the use of the term "Enbrel" throughout this report describes EU-authorized Enbrel only.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. PASI 75 Response Rate at Week 12 - GP2015 Etanercept vs. Enbrel ® Etanercept [ Time Frame: Week 12 ]
    The 95% CI for the Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (PASI) 75 response rate differences at Week12 between GP2015 Etanercept and Enbrel ® Etanercept. PASI 75 response: patients who achieved ≥ 75% improvement (reduction) in PASI score compared to baseline were defined as PASI 75 responders. PASI scores can range from 0, corresponding to no signs of psoriasis up to theoretic maximum of 72.0, which means a higher PASI score reflects a higher psoriasis activity.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percent Change From Baseline in PASI Score up to Week 12 [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
    The key secondary efficacy endpoint was the % change from baseline in PASI score up to Week 12. PASI scores can range from 0, corresponding to no signs of psoriasis up to theoretic maximum of 72.0, which means a higher PASI score reflects a higher psoriasis activity. Two approaches (longitudinal approach applying a Mixed Model Repeated Measures and Averaged Treatment Effect approach applying an ANCOVA model) were employed in order to calculate 2-sided 95% confidence intervals (CI) for the difference between the treatment groups.

  2. PASI 50, 75 and 90 Response Rates [ Time Frame: Week12 ]
    Percentage of patients achieving Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (PASI) 50, PASI 75, and PASI 90 responses at Week 12. PASI 50 response: patients who achieved ≥ 50% improvement (reduction) in PASI score compared to baseline were defined as PASI 50 responders .PASI 90 response: patients who achieved ≥ 90% improvement (reduction) in PASI score compared to baseline were defined as PASI 90 responders .

  3. Injection Site Reactions [ Time Frame: Week52 ]
    Percentage of patients with injection site reactions up to Week 52

  4. Immunogenicity: Measurement of Rate of ADA Formations Against GP2015 Etanercept and Enbrel ® Etanercept [ Time Frame: Week 52 ]
    Immunogenicity was analyzed by the percentage of patients with positive anti-drug antibodies (ADA) to either GP2015 Etanercept or Enbrel ® up to Week 52.
