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

This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.
Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.
Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.
Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.
Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.
The sponsor is the organization or person who oversees the clinical study and is responsible for analyzing the study data.
The person who is responsible for the scientific and technical direction of the entire clinical study.

Experimental: Part 1: Guselkumab
Participants in group 1 (Part 1) will receive 100 milligram (mg) guselkumab subcutaneously (SC) at Weeks 0, 4, 12 and 20.
Experimental: Part 2: Guselkumab q8w and Guselkumab q16w
Eligible participants from Part 1 will continue to participate in Part 2. Participants (super responder [SRe]) with a Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (PASI) score = 0 at weeks 20 and 28 will be randomized to guselkumab 100 mg every 8 weeks (q8w) (group 2a) or guselkumab 100 mg q16w (group 2b), at weeks 28 to 60. Group 2b will receive placebo injection at weeks 28, 44 and 60 to keep the comparison double blind. Participants losing control of disease (PASI score >5) during study Part 2 (until week 60), will enter the re-treatment arm (group 2d) and receive guselkumab 100mg q8w (at re-treatment week 0), followed by administration at re-treatment-weeks 8 and 16.
Experimental: Part 2: Guselkumab q8w
Participants (Non SRe) in group 2c with a PASI score greater than (>) 0 at week 20 and/or 28 will continue to receive guselkumab 100 mg q8w until week 60.
Experimental: Part 3: Guselkumab Withdrawal
Participants from groups 2a and 2b with a PASI score <3 at week 68 will be included in Part 3 (group 3a and 3b) and be withdrawn from guselkumab. Study visits will be conducted every 12 weeks until week 116 (follow-up). Participants with fluctuating disease (PASI score greater than or equal to [>=] 3) at week 68 or PASI >5 (participants losing control of disease) at any visit during part 3 after week 68 will get an opportunity to enter the re-treatment-arm (group 3c) in which participants will receive three guselkumab injections of 100 mg q8w.
Drug: - Guselkumab
Participants will receive 100 mg guselkumab subcutaneously at Weeks 0, 4, 12 and 20 (group 1), at weeks 28, 36, 44, 52, 60 (group 2a, 2c, 2d and 3c), and at weeks 36 and 52 (group 2b). Group 2d and 3c are the re-treatment groups and will receive three injections after loss of disease control.
Drug: - Placebo Injection
Participants of group 2b will receive matching placebo injection subcutaneously at weeks 28, 44 and 60.
