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.
|Eligible Ages||18 Years and Over|
- - Have a diagnosis of psoriatic arthritis (PsA) for at least 6 months prior to the first administration of study intervention and meet classification criteria for psoriatic arthritis (CASPAR) criteria at screening.
- - Have active PsA as defined by: a) at least 3 swollen joints and at least 3 tender joints at screening and at baseline and b) C-reactive protein (CRP) greater than or equal to (>=) 0.3 milligram/deciliter (mg/dL) at screening from the central laboratory, and despite previous non-biologic disease modifying antirheumatic drug (DMARD), apremilast, and/or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) therapy.
- - Have magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-confirmed PsA axial disease (positive MRI spine and/or sacroiliac [SI] joints, shown by a Spondyloarthritis Research Consortium of Canada [SPARCC] score of >= 3 in either the spine or the sacroiliac joints) - Have a Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Disease Activity Index (BASDAI) score of at least 4, and have a spinal pain score (on a visual analog scale [VAS]) of at least 4.
- - Have active plaque psoriasis, with at least 1 psoriatic plaque of >= 2 centimeter (cm) diameter and/or nail changes consistent with psoriasis, or documented history of plaque psoriasis.
- - Has known allergies, hypersensitivity, or intolerance to guselkumab or its excipients.
- - Has other inflammatory diseases that might confound the evaluations of benefit of guselkumab therapy, including but not limited to rheumatoid arthritis (RA), ankylosing spondylitis (AS)/non-radiographic-axial spondyloarthritis (this does not include a primary diagnosis of PsA with spondylitis), systemic lupus erythematosus, or Lyme disease.
- - Has previously received any biologic treatment.
- - Has ever received a Janus kinase (JAK) inhibitor including but not limited to tofacitinib, baricitinib, filgotinib, peficitinib, decernotinib, upadacitinib or any other investigational JAK inhibitor.
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.

PsA is a chronic inflammatory musculoskeletal disease that has 6 disease domains, and axial disease represents one of the domains. Guselkumab is a fully human immunoglobulin (Ig) G1 lambda monoclonal antibody (mAb) that by binding to the p19 protein subunit of interleukin (IL)-23, blocks the binding of extracellular IL-23 to the cell surface IL-23 receptor, inhibiting IL-23-mediated intracellular signaling, activation, and cytokine production. This study will consist of a screening phase (up to 6 weeks), a treatment phase (up to 48 weeks, including a placebo-controlled period from Week 0 to Week 24 and an active-controlled treatment phase from Week 24 to Week 48), and a safety follow-up phase (up to Week 60). The efficacy assessments will include assessment such as Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Disease Activity Index (BASDAI) score and the safety assessments will include evaluations of physical examinations, vital signs, electrocardiograms, clinical laboratory tests, and adverse events. The overall duration of the study will be up to 14 months.
Experimental: Group 1: Guselkumab and Placebo
Participants will receive guselkumab and matching placebo subcutaneously (SC) to maintain the blind.
Experimental: Group 2: Guselkumab
Participants will receive guselkumab SC.
Experimental: Group 3: Placebo followed by Guselkumab
Participants will receive matching placebo and will cross over to receive guselkumab SC.
Drug: - Guselkumab
Guselkumab will be administered as subcutaneous injection.
Drug: - Placebo
Matching placebo will be administered as subcutaneous injection.
