Apremilast as a Direct Treatment for Mild-to-moderate Plaque Psoriasis Versus Placebo: an Analysis of Clinical Safety and Efficacy
a study on Psoriasis
This is a Phase 3, multicenter, randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind study designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of apremilast (CC-10004) in subjects with mild to moderate plaque psoriasis. Approximately 574 subjects with mild to moderate plaque psoriasis will be randomized 1:1 to receive either apremilast 30 mg BID or placebo for the first 16 weeks.
A PHASE 3, MULTICENTER, RANDOMIZED, PLACEBO-CONTROLLED, DOUBLE-BLIND, STUDY OF THE EFFICACY AND SAFETY Of APREMILAST (CC-10004), COMPARED TO PLACEBO, IN SUBJECTS WTIH MILD TO MODERATE PLAQUE PSORIASIS
The study will consist of four phases:
- Screening Phase - up to 35 days
- Double-blind Placebo-controlled Phase - Weeks 0 to 16
- Subjects will be randomly assigned to either apremilast 30 mg tablets orally BID or placebo tablets (identical in appearance to apremilast 30 mg tablets) orally BID.
- Apremilast Extension Phase - Weeks 16 to 32
- All subjects will be switched to (or continue with) apremilast 30 mg BID. All subjects will maintain this dosing through Week 32.
- Observational Follow-up Phase - 4 weeks - Four-week Post-Treatment Observational Follow-up Phase for all subjects who complete the study or discontinue the study early.
