Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Bimekizumab dosage regimen 1

Subjects randomized to this arm will receive bimekizumab dosage regimen 1 (BKZ 1).

At Week 16 subjects will be re-randomized and continue to receive BKZ 1 or to switch to bimekizumab regimen 2 (BKZ 2).

Placebo will be administered at pre-specified time-points to maintain the blinding over the double-blind Treatment Period.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percentage of Participants With a Psoriasis Area and Severity Index 100 (PASI100) Response at Week 16 [ Time Frame: Week 16 ]
    The PASI100 response assessments are based on 100% improvement in PASI score from Baseline. Body divided into 4 areas: head, arms, trunk to groin, and legs to top of buttocks. Assignment of an average score for the redness, thickness, and scaling for each of the 4 body areas with a score of 0 (clear) to 4 (very marked). Determining the percentage of skin covered with PSO for each of body areas and converting to a 0 to 6 scale. Final PASI= average redness, thickness, and scaliness of the psoriatic skin lesions, multiplied by the involved psoriasis area score of the respective section, and weighted by the percentage of the person's affected skin for the respective section. The minimum possible PASI score is 0= no disease, the maximum score is 72= maximal disease.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percentage of Participants With a PASI75 Response at Week 4 [ Time Frame: Week 4 ]
    The PASI75 response assessments are based on at least 75% improvement in PASI score from Baseline. Body divided into 4 areas: head, arms, trunk to groin, and legs to top of buttocks. Assignment of an average score for redness, thickness, and scaling for each of the 4 body areas with score of 0 (clear) to 4 (very marked). Determining the percentage of skin covered with PSO for each of body areas and converting to 0 to 6 scale. Final PASI= average redness, thickness, and scaliness of the psoriatic skin lesions, multiplied by the involved psoriasis area score of the respective section, and weighted by the percentage of the person's affected skin for the respective section. The minimum possible PASI score is 0= no disease, the maximum score is 72= maximal disease.

  2. Percentage of Participants With a PASI90 Response at Week 16 [ Time Frame: Week 16 ]
    The PASI90 response assessments are based on at least 90% improvement in PASI score from Baseline. Body divided into 4 areas: head, arms, trunk to groin, and legs to top of buttocks. Assignment of an average score for redness, thickness, and scaling for each of the 4 body areas with score of 0 (clear) to 4 (very marked). Determining the percentage of skin covered with PSO for each of the body areas and converting to a 0 to 6 scale. Final PASI=average redness, thickness, and scaliness of the psoriatic skin lesions, multiplied by the involved psoriasis area score of the respective section, and weighted by the percentage of the person's affected skin for respective section. The minimum possible PASI score is 0= no disease, the maximum score is 72= maximal disease.

  3. Percentage of Participants With a PASI100 Response at Week 48 [ Time Frame: Week 48 ]
    The PASI100 response assessments are based on 100% improvement in PASI score from Baseline. Body divided into 4 areas: head, arms, trunk to groin, and legs to top of buttocks. Assignment of an average score for the redness, thickness, and scaling for each of the 4 body areas with a score of 0 (clear) to 4 (very marked). Determining the percentage of skin covered with PSO for each of body areas and converting to a 0 to 6 scale. Final PASI= average redness, thickness, and scaliness of the psoriatic skin lesions, multiplied by the involved psoriasis area score of the respective section, and weighted by the percentage of the person's affected skin for the respective section. The minimum possible PASI score is 0= no disease, the maximum score is 72= maximal disease.

  4. Percentage of Participants With a Investigator´s Global Assessment (IGA) Response (0/1) at Week 16 [ Time Frame: Week 16 ]
    The IGA measures the overall psoriasis severity following a 5-point scale (0-4), where scale 0= clear, no signs of psoriasis; presence of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, scale 1= almost clear, no thickening; normal to pink coloration; no to minimal focal scaling, scale 2= mild thickening, pink to light red coloration and predominately fine scaling, 3= moderate, clearly distinguishable to moderate thickening; dull to bright red, clearly distinguishable to moderate thickening; moderate scaling and 4= severe thickening with hard edges; bright to deep dark red coloration; severe/coarse scaling covering almost all or all lesions. IGA response was defined as Clear (0) or Almost Clear (1) with at least a two-category improvement from Baseline at Week 16.

  5. Number of Treatment-emergent Adverse Events (TEAEs) Adjusted by Duration of Participant Exposure to Investigational Medicinal Product (IMP) From Baseline up to Week 48 [ Time Frame: From Baseline up to Week 48 ]
    The number of TEAEs adjusted by duration of exposure to study treatment was scaled such that provided an incidence rate per 100 patient-years. If a participant had multiple events, the time of exposure was calculated to the first occurrence of the AE being considered. If a participant had no events, the total time at risk was used.

  6. Number of Serious Adverse Events (SAEs) Adjusted by Duration of Participant Exposure to IMP From Baseline up to Week 48 [ Time Frame: From Baseline up to Week 48 ]
    The number of SAEs adjusted by duration of exposure to study treatment was scaled such that it provided an incidence rate per 100 patient-years. If a participant had multiple events, the time of exposure was calculated to the first occurrence of the AE being considered. If a participant had no events, the total time at risk was used.

  7. Number of TEAEs Leading to Withdrawal Adjusted by Duration of Participant Exposure to IMP From Baseline up to Week 48 [ Time Frame: From Baseline up to Week 48 ]
    The number of TEAEs leading to discontinuation adjusted by duration of exposure to study treatment was scaled such that it provided an incidence rate per 100 patient-years. If a participant had multiple events, the time of exposure was calculated to the first occurrence of the AE being considered. If a participant had no events, the total time at risk was used.

Plan Description: Data from this trial may be requested by qualified researchers six months after product approval in the US and/or Europe, or global development is discontinued, and 18 months after trial completion. Investigators may request access to anonymized individual patient-level data and redacted trial documents which may include: analysis-ready datasets, study protocol, annotated case report form, statistical analysis plan, dataset specifications, and clinical study report. Prior to use of the data, proposals need to be approved by an independent review panel at www.Vivli.org and a signed data sharing agreement will need to be executed. All documents are available in English only, for a prespecified time, typically 12 months, on a password protected portal.
