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.

Exclusion Criteria:Participants are excluded from the study if any of the following criteria apply:
- - Skin disease related conditions such as, Erythrodermic psoriasis (PsO), pustular PsO, guttate PsO, medication induced PsO, or other skin conditions at the time of the screening visit (eg, eczema) that would interfere with evaluations of the effect of IP on PsO.
- - Participant has an active infection, recurrent or chronic infections, serious infection or history of infections.
- - Known history of human immunodeficiency virus.

- - Uncontrolled, clinically significant systemic disease such as uncontrolled diabetes mellitus, cardiovascular disease, renal disease, liver disease, or hypertension.
- - Moderate to severe heart failure (New York Heart Associate class III/IV) - Known hypersensitivity to the IP or to any of the excipients.
- - Any abnormal laboratory parameters at screening, as defined in protocol.
- - Previous treatment with any agent specifically targeting interleukin (IL)-12 or IL-23.
- - Received biologic treatment for psoriasis within the previous month or 5 drug half-lives prior to randomization.
- - Received non-biologic systemic psoriasis therapy within 4 weeks prior to randomization.
- - Received Ultra-violet A (UVA) phototherapy (with or without psoralen) or excimer laser within 4 weeks prior to randomization, or ultra-violet B (UVB) phototherapy within 2 weeks prior to randomization.
- - Received topical psoriasis treatment within 2 weeks prior to randomization (exception: upper mid-strength to least potent [class III to VII] topical steroids permitted on the palms, soles, face, and intertriginous areas; bland emollients) - Received live viral or live bacterial vaccination within 2 weeks prior to randomization.
- - Received BCG vaccination within 1 year prior to randomization.
- - Other investigational procedures within 4 weeks prior to randomization and during the study.
- - Participants not agreeing to follow protocol defined contraceptives procedures.
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.

This is a multicenter study and will enroll approximately 542 participants. The total duration of study participation for each participant will be 56 weeks, with up to 4 weeks for screening, and for 52 weeks after the first administration of either ABP 654 or ustekinumab. After confirmation of eligibility, all participants will be randomized in a 1:1 ratio into 2 treatment groups (Group A will receive ABP 654, and Group B will receive ustekinumab) stratified by prior biologic use for psoriasis (yes versus [vs] no), geographic region, and baseline body weight (BW). Based on the psoriasis area and severity index (PASI) score (to determine better improvement or partial improvement) at week 28, the participants in the study will proceed as follows: 1. Participants who do not achieve PASI 50 response or better improvement at Week 28 will be considered to have completed the study and will complete end of study procedures (ie, week 52 procedures), and those unable to complete week 28 visit, or did not have a PASI assessment completed, will be discontinued from the study. 2. Participants who achieve PASI 75 response or better improvement will continue on the study and will be re-randomized in a blinded fashion such that participants initially randomized to Group A (ABP 654) will continue to receive ABP 654 and those in Group B (ustekinumab) will re-randomized, to either continue on ustekinumab (Treatment Group B1) or switch to ABP 654 (Treatment Group B2). 3. Participants with PASI 50 response or better but less than PASI 75 response and on the Investigator's decision, participants will continue on the originally assigned treatment with dose intensification and will not be re-randomized. However, participants that do not dose intensify will be re-randomized.
Experimental: Treatment Group A (ABP 654)
Participants will receive subcutaneous (SC) injection of ABP 654, 45 mg (baseline BW less than equal to [<=] 100 kg) or 90 mg (baseline BW greater than [>] 100 kg) at weeks 0, 4, and 16. Further from week 28 participants will receive ABP 654 (same dose) every 12 weeks (Q12W) at weeks 28 and 40 or may receive dose intensification Q8W at weeks 28, 36, and 44, depending on PASI score.
Experimental: Treatment Group B (Ustekinumab - ABP 654)
Participants will receive SC injection of ustekinumab,45 mg (baseline BW <= 100 kg) or 90 mg (baseline BW > 100 kg) at weeks 0, 4, and 16. At week 28, participants will be re-randomized to continue on ustekinumab (Treatment group B1), or to receive ABP 654 (Treatment group B2) on weeks 28 and 40. Depending on PASI score, some participants may not be re-randomized and may receive dose intensification with ustekinumab Q8W at weeks 28, 36, and 44.
Drug: - ABP 654
Participants will receive SC injection of ABP 654.
Drug: - Ustekinumab
Participants will receive SC injection of ustekinumab.
