A Dose Finding Study of AEB071 Assessing Psoriasis Area and Severity Index in Patients With Plaque Psoriasis
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
This study is designed to provide efficacy and safety data of several doses of AEB071 so that the optimal dose and treatment duration can be chosen for testing in later studies in patients with plaque psoriasis (with a disease severity such that systemic treatment is justified). The treatment free Follow-up Period is designed to provide additional safety data and information on disease recurrence after the last dose of the study drug.
A Double Blind, Randomized, Placebo Controlled, Multicenter, Dose Finding Study of Oral AEB071 Assessing Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (PASI) Response and a Function of Dose and Treatment Duration (Primary Outcome) in Patients With Plaque Psoriasis
