KD025 200 mg (two 100 mg capsules) orally once daily for 28 days
Drug: KD025
Other Name: SLX-2119

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Subjects Experiencing Adverse Events as a Measure of Safety and Tolerability [ Time Frame: 28 days ]
    To evaluate the safety and tolerability of 200 mg of KD025 administered orally once daily for 28 days in subjects with Psoriasis

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Decrease in Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (PASI) [ Time Frame: 28 days ]
    To assess the decreases, if any, in PASI in all subjects after 28 days of dosing with 200 mg of KD025

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Improvement in Physicians Global Assessment (PGA) [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
    To achieve improvement in PGA

  2. Change In Cytokine Expression [ Time Frame: 28 days ]
    Change in cytokine expression in punch biopsy after 28 days of treatment with KD025
