Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to compare the safety and efficacy of secukinumab monotherapy and adalimumab monotherapy in patients with active psoriatic arthritis who are naïve to biologic therapy and are intolerant or having inadequate response to conventional DMARDs

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Psoriatic Arthritis Biological: Secukinumab Biological: Adalimumab Phase 3

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 850 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Quadruple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Randomized, Double-blind, Active Control, Multicenter Study to Evaluate the Efficacy at Week 52 of Secukinumab Monotherapy Compared With Adalimumab Monotherapy in Patients With Active Psoriatic Arthritis
Actual Study Start Date : April 3, 2017
Estimated Primary Completion Date : March 12, 2020
Estimated Study Completion Date : March 12, 2020


Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Secukinumab 300 mg s.c.
Secukinumab 300 mg will be administered at Baseline, Weeks 1, 2, 3 and 4, followed by dosing every 4 weeks until Week 48.
Biological: Secukinumab
Eligible subjects are randomized to one of two treatment arms in a 1:1 ratio
Other Name: (AIN457)

Active Comparator: Adalimumab 40 mg s.c.
Adalimumab 40 mg will be administered at Baseline followed by dosing every 2 weeks until Week 50.
Biological: Adalimumab
Eligible subjects are randomized to one of two treatment arms in a 1:1 ratio




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. American College of Rheumatology 20 (ACR20) response [ Time Frame: 52 weeks ]
    An ACR20 response is defined by at least 20% decrease in the swollen and tender joint count, and at least 20% improvements in 3 of the following 5 criteria: physical disability on the Health Assessment Questionnaire; pain score on a visual analog scale; patient global assessment; physician global assessment; and acute phase reactant [either erythrocyte sedimentation rate(ESR) or high sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP)]


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. PASI90 [ Time Frame: 52 weeks ]
    PASI takes into account the extent of the disease, as well as the severity of erythema, scaling, and thickness in different body areas affected by psoriasis. A PASI90 represents an improvement in the PASI score of at least 90% as compared with baseline

  2. ACR50 response [ Time Frame: 52 weeks ]
    An ACR50 response is defined by at least 50% decrease in the swollen and tender joint count, and at least 50% improvements in 3 of the following 5 criteria: physical disability on the Health Assessment Questionnaire; pain score on a visual analog scale; patient global assessment; physician global assessment; and acute phase reactant [either erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) or high sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP)]

  3. Health Assessment Questionnaire - Disability Index (HAQ-DI score), relative to baseline [ Time Frame: 52 weeks ]
    The disability assessment component of the HAQ assesses a subjects level of functional ability and includes questions of fine movements of the upper extremity, locomotor activities of the lower extremity, and activities that involve both upper and lower extremeties.

  4. Resolution of enthesitis [ Time Frame: 52 weeks ]
    Enthesitis refers to inflammation of entheses, the site where ligaments or tendons insert into the bones. Resolution is defined as the absence of recorded enthesitis; conducted by the study assessor.
