An International Multicenter, Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo-Controlled Clinical Study of Efficacy and Safety of Two Dosing Regimens of BCD-085 (JSC BIOCAD, Russia) in Patients With Moderate to Severe Plaque Psoriasis

Study Purpose

BCD-085 is an innovative drug, monoclonal antibody against interleukin-17. The toxicity, safety, and pharmacokinetics of BCD-085 was investigated in animals, in phase I clinical study in healthy volunteers, and in phase III clinical study in patients with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis. This clinical study aims at investigating the efficacy and safety of BCD-085 every other week regimen (after induction for first 3 weeks) versus BCD-085 one per month regimen (after induction for first 3 weeks) versus placebo in patients with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis. Study purpose: To investigate the efficacy and safety of BCD-085 versus placebo and Cosentyx® in patients with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis (psoriasis vulgaris) Study objectives: 1. To compare the efficacy of BCD-085 every 2 weeks versus BCD-085 every 4 weeks versus placebo, based on the proportion of patients who achieved a PASI75, target sPGA score, and on other secondary efficacy measures. 2. To evaluate the proportion of patients in each study arm who develop adverse events with multiple injections of BCD-085 and placebo. Compare the safety profiles of BCD-085 when used every 4 weeks and when used every 2 weeks. 3. 4. To assess the immunogenicity of BCD-085 defined as the proportion of patients who develop anti-drug antibodies (binding or neutralizing).

Recruitment Criteria

Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms

Accepts Healthy Volunteers

An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.

An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.

Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.

Patients received at least one course of phototherapy or systemic therapy for psoriasis or are candidates for such treatment according to the investigator. 5. Body surface area (BSA) affected by psoriasis of 10% or greater, the PASI score of 10 or greater, and the sPGA score of 3 or greater at screening. 6. Negative pregnancy urine test in female subjects (no test is required in women who are post-menopausal for at least 2 years and in surgically sterile women). 7. The patient must be able to follow the Protocol procedures (in the investigator's opinion). 8. Patients of childbearing potential and their partners with preserved reproductive function must implement reliable contraceptive methods starting from signing informed consent to 20 weeks after the last dose of the study therapy. This requirement does not apply to the patients after surgical sterilization and to females who are post-menopausal for 2 years or longer. Reliable contraception methods suggest using one barrier method in combination with one of the following: spermicides, intrauterine device/oral contraceptives

Exclusion Criteria:

  • - Any systemic medications for psoriasis (including glucocorticoids, methotrexate, sulfasalazine, cyclosporine, acitretin, mycophenolate mofetil, аpremilast, calcitriol derivatives, etc.) used within 4 weeks before signing the ICF If prior systemic therapy with non-biologics was stopped due to any reasons, the screening period can be extended up to 8 weeks during which no new non-biologics are allowed.
