Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To Establish a Dose-response Efficacy Profile of AMG 827 Compared With Placebo as Measured by the Percent Improvement From Baseline in Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (PASI) Score at Week 12 and to Identify an Appropriate Dose Regimen for Future Trials [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To Evaluate the Efficacy of AMG 827 as Measured by the Following: Body Surface Area (BSA) Involvement at Weeks 12 [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Subject diagnosed with erythrodermic psoriasis, pustular psoriasis, medication-induced, or medication-exacerbated psoriasis.

  • Subject has a significant concurrent medical condition or laboratory abnormalities, as defined in the study protocol.
  • Subject has used the following therapies within 14 days of the first dose: UVB therapy or topical psoriasis therapies other than Class I or II topical steroids
  • Subject has used the following therapies within 28 days of the first dose: Class I or II topical steroids, UVA therapy (with or without psoralen), or systemic psoriasis therapies
  • Subject has used the following therapies within 3 months of the first dose: adalimumab, alefacept, etanercept, infliximab, certolizumab, or live vaccines
  • Subject has used an anti-IL12/IL23 inhibitor within 6 months of the first dose
  • Subject has previously used an anti-IL17 biologic therapy, efalizumab, or rituximab
