- Maximum Observed Concentration During the Dosing Interval Week 30-32 (Cmax, 30-32) for Adalimumab in Plasma [ Time Frame: Pre-dose at Week 30, at 72, 120, 168 and 240 hours after the Week 30 dosing, and pre-dose at Week 32. ]Maximum observed concentration during the 2 weeks dosing interval between Week 30 to 32 (Cmax, 30-32) for Adalimumab in plasma was reported.
- Minimum Observed Concentration During the Dosing Interval of Week 30 to 32 (Cmin, 30-32) for Adalimumab in Plasma [ Time Frame: Pre-dose at Week 30, at 72, 120, 168 and 240 hours after the Week 30 dosing, and pre-dose at Week 32. ]Minimum Observed Concentration During the 2 weeks Dosing Interval between Week 30 to 32 (Cmin, 30-32) for Adalimumab in plasma was reported.
- Time to Maximum Observed Concentration During the Dosing Interval of Week 30 to 32 (Tmax, 30-32) for Adalimumab in Plasma [ Time Frame: Pre-dose at Week 30, at 72, 120, 168 and 240 hours after the Week 30 dosing, and pre-dose at Week 32. ]Time to Maximum Observed Concentration During the 2 weeks Dosing Interval between Week 30 to 32 (tmax, 30-32) for Adalimumab in plasma was reported.
- Percentage of Patients With a 75% Reduction in Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (PASI75) Response at Week 32 [ Time Frame: At week 32 ]The PASI is an established measure of clinical efficacy for psoriasis medications. The PASI is a tool which provides a numeric scoring for patients' overall psoriasis disease state, with scores ranging from 0 to 72. It is a linear combination of percent of surface area of skin that is affected and the severity of erythema, induration, and desquamation over four body regions (head, trunk, upper extremities and lower extremities). Higher PASI scores indicate more severe psoriasis. PASI is generally summarized as a dichotomous outcome based on achieving over an X percent(%) reduction from baseline (or PASIX), where X is 50, 75, 90, and 100. Results are reported for percentage of patients with a PASI75 response at Week 32. Analysis was done on per-protocol analysis set (PPS).
- Percentage of Patients With a Static Physician's Global Assessment (sPGA) Score ≤ 1 (Clear or Almost Clear) at Week 32 [ Time Frame: At week 32 ]The sPGA is a 5-point score ranging from 0 to 4, based on the physician's assessment of the average thickness, erythema, and scaling of all psoriatic lesions. The assessment is considered "static", which refers to the patient's disease state at the time of the assessments, without comparison to any of the patient's previous disease states (dynamic), whether at baseline or at a previous visit. A lower score indicates less body coverage and a higher score indicates more severe disease (0 = clear, 1 = almost clear, 2 = mild, 3 = moderate and 4 = severe). Results are reported for percentage of patients with a sPGA score of ≤ 1 (clear or almost clear) at Week 32. Analysis was done on per-protocol analysis set (PPS).
- Number of Patients With Anti-drug Antibody (ADA) to Adalimumab at Week 32 [ Time Frame: Immunogenicity samples were collected pre-dose at Week 32. ]Number of patients with a confirmed positive anti-drug antibody (ADA) response to Adalimumab (BI 695501 or Humira) at Week 32. A participant was considered "ADA positive" if the blank normalized signal in the ADA screening assay was equal to or above the study specific ADA screening cut point factor of 1.06 and the signal inhibition by drug in the ADA confirmatory assay was equal to or above the study specific ADA confirmatory cut points (11.4% for signal inhibition with Humira and 12.0% for signal inhibition with BI 695501).
- Number of Patients With Neutralizing Antibody (nAb) to Adalimumab at Week 32 [ Time Frame: Immunogenicity samples were collected pre-dose at Week 32. ]Number of patients with a positive neutralizing anti-drug antibody (nAb) response to Adalimumab (BI 695501 or Humira) at Week 32. A participant was considered "nAb positive" if the blank normalized signal in the nAb screening assay was equal to or below the study specific nAb screening cut point factor of 0.836.
- Anti-drug Antibody (ADA) Titer of Patients With ADA at Week 32 [ Time Frame: Immunogenicity samples were collected pre-dose at Week 32. ]Anti-drug antibody (ADA) titer of patients with a confirmed positive ADA response to Adalimumab (BI 695501 or Humira) at Week 32.
- Neutralizing Anti-drug Antibody (nAb) Titer of Patients With nAb at Week 32 [ Time Frame: Immunogenicity samples were collected pre-dose at Week 32. ]Neutralizing anti-drug antibody (nAb) titer of patients with a positive nAb response to Adalimumab (BI 695501 or Humira) at Week 32.
- Percentage of Patients With Drug-related Adverse Events (AEs) During the Post-Randomization Period [ Time Frame: From first dose of trial post-randomization medication until 10 weeks after last dose of trial post-randomization medication, up to 44 weeks ]Analysis of AEs focused on treatment-emergent adverse events (TEAEs) and is presented here for the post-randomization period (Week 14 to 58). For the post-randomization period analysis, TEAEs were defined as AEs that started or worsened on or after the first dose of trial post-randomization medication and prior to the last dose of trial post-randomization medication + 10 weeks.

|Accepts Healthy Volunteers:||No|
Males and females aged ≥ 18 to < 80 years at screening who have a diagnosis of moderate-to-severe chronic plaque psoriasis (with or without psoriatic arthritis) for at least 6 months before the first administration of trial drug (a self-reported diagnosis confirmed by the Investigator is acceptable), and which has been stable per Investigator opinion for the last 2 months with no changes in morphology or significant flares at both screening and baseline:
- involved body surface area (BSA) ≥ 10% and
- PASI score ≥ 12 and
- sPGA score of ≥ 3.
- Participants of reproductive potential (childbearing potential1) must be willing and able to use highly effective methods of birth control per International Council for Harmonisation (ICH) M3 (R2) that result in a low failure rate of less than 1% per year when used consistently and correctly during the trial and for 6 months following completion or discontinuation from the trial medication. A list of contraception methods meeting these criteria is provided in patient information.

- Patients with a significant disease other than psoriasis and/or a significant uncontrolled disease (such as, but not limited to, nervous system, renal, hepatic, endocrine, hematological, autoimmune or gastrointestinal disorders). A significant disease is defined as a disease which, in the opinion of the Investigator, may (i) put the patient at risk because of participation in the trial, or (ii) influence the results of the trial, or (iii) cause concern regarding the patient's ability to participate in the trial.
