Brief Summary:
Patients with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis will be treated with Otezla BID. At week 8, non responders will be discontinued, partial responders will be given add-on Enstilar QD for 4 weeks and PASI 75 responders will remain on Otezla monotherapy through week 16.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Psoriasis Drug: Otezla Phase 4

Detailed Description:

50 adult patients with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis will be given OTEZLA® for 8 weeks.

At week 8, patients who achieved between PASI 25-74 response will receive 4 weeks of Enstilar® (calcipotriene and betamethasone dipropionate) Foam, 0.005%/0.064% in addition to continuing OTEZLA® therapy.

Patients who do not meet PASI 25 at week 8 will be discontinued from the study.

At week 12 (after 4 consecutive weeks of Enstilar® add on therapy), Enstilar® will be discontinued and these patients will continue Otezla® as monotherapy through week 16.

Patients who achieve PASI 75 at week 8 will remain enrolled on Otezla® monotherapy through week 16.
