Summary

The purpose of this study is to evaluate safety and efficacy of etanercept in patients with psoriasis who had an unsatisfactory response to adalimumab and infliximab.

Clinical Details

Official title: Safety and Efficacy of Etanercept in Patients With Moderate to Severe Plaque Psoriasis Who Have Shown an Unsatisfactory Response to Adalimumab or Infliximab

Study design: Allocation: Non-Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary outcome: Proportion of patients who reach a Physician's Global Assessment (PGA) of clear or almost clear after 12 and 24 weeks of etanercept for patients who have shown an unsatisfactory response to adalimumab 40 mg every other week (EOW).

Secondary outcome:

Proportion of patients who reach a PGA of clear or almost clear after 12 and 24 weeks of etanercept for patients who have lost their satisfactory response to adalimumab 40 mg EOW.

Proportion of patients who reach a PGA of clear or almost clear after 12 and 24 weeks of etanercept for patients who have lost their satisfactory response to infliximab.

Mean Body Surface Area (BSA) after 12 weeks and 24 weeks of etanercept for patients who have lost their satisfactory response to infliximab.

Mean BSA after 12 weeks and 24 weeks of etanercept for patients who have lost their satisfactory response to adalimumab 40 mg EOW.

Mean BSA after 12 and 24 weeks of etanercept for patients who have shown an unsatisfactory response to adalimumab 40 mg EOW.

Mean Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (PASI) score after 12 weeks and 24 weeks of etanercept for patients who have lost their satisfactory response to infliximab.

Mean PASI score after 12 weeks and 24 weeks of etanercept for patients who have lost their satisfactory response to adalimumab 40 mg EOW.

Mean PASI score after 12 and 24 weeks of etanercept for patients who have shown an unsatisfactory response to adalimumab 40 mg EOW.

Safety of etanercept in patients who have shown an unsatisfactory response to adalimumab, who have lost their satisfactory response to adalimumab or who have lost their satisfactory response to infliximab.
