Primary Outcome Measures:
  • PASI (Psoriasis Area and Severity Index) 75 response at week 12, defined as a 75% or greater decrease in PASI score (i.e., improvement) from baseline at week 12. [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

  • Clear or almost clear status of sPGA (Static Physician Global Assessment of psoriasis) at week 12 [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Percent improvement from baseline in CDLQI (Children's Dermatology Life Quality Index) at week 12 [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Safety as measured by adverse events, infections, injection site reaction, lab toxicity, vital signs, antibodies to etanercept, and disease rebound during the investigational product withdrawal period [ Time Frame: 48 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
