Brief Summary:
To evaluate the safety and tolerability of UCB5857. Part 1 of the study explores single doses of the drug. Part 2 of the study explores giving the drug every day for 14 days. The study uses healthy and psoriasis subjects.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Psoriasis Drug: UCB5857 Part 1 Drug: UCB5857 Part 2 Other: Placebo Phase 1

Detailed Description:

This is a first-in-human (FIH), Phase 1, randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled, single center study designed to evaluate the safety/ tolerability, pharmacokinetics (PK), and pharmacodynamics (PD) of UCB5857 following oral administration of single ascending doses (SAD) in healthy subjects (Part 1) and multiple ascending doses (MAD) in healthy and mild-to-moderate psoriatic subjects (Part 2).

The primary objective of this study is to investigate the safety and tolerability of UCB5857 when given as single oral doses in healthy subjects and as ascending multiple oral doses in healthy subjects and mild-to-moderate psoriatic subjects.

Male contraception is not required if the male subject has undergone effective vasectomy >3 months prior to the study; however, his female partner must use a contraceptive method during the study period and for a period of 3 months or 5 half-lives after the last administration of the IMP (whichever is longer)

Results that are outside the specified ranges and that are deemed as clinically nonsignificant will be allowed at the discretion of the Investigator, following discussion with the Sponsor's Study Physician. If a subject has 1 isolated finding outside the specific range which is deemed clinically significant, rescreening may be allowed at the discretion of the Investigator, following discussion with the Sponsor's Study Physician
