Research Study

A Phase III, Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo Controlled Multi-center Study of Subcutaneous Secukinumab (150 mg and 300 mg) in Prefilled Syringe to Demonstrate Efficacy (Including Inhibition of Structural Damage), Safety, and Tolerability up to 2 Years in Subjects With Active Psoriatic Arthritis (FUTURE 5)

Purpose of Study 

The purpose of this study is to demonstrate efficacy including effect on inhibition of progression of structural damage, safety and tolerability up to 2 years with primary focus at Week 24, to support the use of secukinumab pre-filled syringe (PFS) by subcutaneous (s.c.) self-administration with or without loading regimen in subjects with active Psoriatic Arthritis (PsA) despite current or previous NSAID, DMARD therapy and/or previous anti-TNFα therapy. Long term efficacy up to 2 years will be based on signs and symptoms of joint/bone structure preservation (X-ray) and improvement in physical function measured by Health Assessment Questionnaire - Disability Index (HAQ-DI©), as well as skin and nail improvement for psoriasis signs.
