Brief Summary:

BCD-085 is an innovative drug, monoclonal antibody against interleukin-17. The toxicity, safety, and pharmacokinetics of BCD-085 was investigated in animals, in phase I clinical study in healthy volunteers, and in phase III clinical study in patients with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis. This clinical study aims at investigating the efficacy and safety of BCD-085 every other week regimen (after induction for first 3 weeks) versus BCD-085 one per month regimen (after induction for first 3 weeks) versus placebo in patients with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.

Study purpose:

To investigate the efficacy and safety of BCD-085 versus placebo and Cosentyx® in patients with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis (psoriasis vulgaris)

Study objectives:

  1. To compare the efficacy of BCD-085 every 2 weeks versus BCD-085 every 4 weeks versus placebo, based on the proportion of patients who achieved a PASI75, target sPGA score, and on other secondary efficacy measures.
  2. To evaluate the proportion of patients in each study arm who develop adverse events with multiple injections of BCD-085 and placebo. Compare the safety profiles of BCD-085 when used every 4 weeks and when used every 2 weeks.
  3. 4. To assess the immunogenicity of BCD-085 defined as the proportion of patients who develop anti-drug antibodies (binding or neutralizing).

Drug: BCD-085 Q2W

In Arm 1, the test drug BCD-085 will be used at a dose of 120 mg given as two SC injections according to the following schedule: once a week for the first 3 weeks (induction treatment) and then once every 2 weeks through Week 10.

On Week 12, the treatment efficacy will be assessed with a PASI75 score, and the therapies will be unblinded. During the open-label patients will receive BCD-085 through week 50. The follow-up will continue through week 54.

Drug: Placebo

In Arm 3, patients will be given two SC injections of placebo (1.0 mL each) according to the following schedule: on Day 1 of weeks 0, 1, 2 and then once every 2 weeks through Week 10.

On Week 12, the treatment efficacy will be assessed with a PASI75 score, and the therapies will be unblinded. During the open-label period, patients from Arm 3 will receive BCD-085 at weeks 12, 13, 14 and then once every 4 weeks through week 50. The follow-up will continue through week 54.





Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. • The proportion of patients in each study arm who achieved a PASI 75 at Week 12 of treatment [ Time Frame: week 12 ]
    PASI 75 is a sensitive indicator for patients with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis. It should be noted that a treatment duration of 12 weeks with an assessment of the proportion of PASI75 responders is widely used in clinical development to evaluate the efficacy of psoriasis drugs and is also recommended in the EMA's guidelines on clinical investigation of medicinal products indicated for the treatment of psoriasis [EMEA/CHMP/EWP/2454/02 corr, 2004].
