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 - 65 Years|
- - Have a diagnosis of psoriatic arthritis (PsA) for greater than or equal to (>=) 6 months prior to the first administration of study intervention and meet Classification criteria for PsA (CASPAR) criteria at screening.
- - Have active PsA as defined by: at least 3 swollen joints and at least 3 tender joints at screening and at baseline; and high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP) >= 0.3 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL) at screening from the central laboratory.
- - Have at least 1 of the following PsA subsets: distal interphalangeal joint involvement, polyarticular arthritis with absence of rheumatoid nodules, arthritis mutilans, asymmetric peripheral arthritis, or spondylitis with peripheral arthritis.
- - Have active plaque psoriasis, with at least one psoriatic plaque of >=2 centimeter (cm) diameter or nail changes consistent with psoriasis.
- - Have an inadequate response (IR) to 1 anti-tumor necrosis factor-alpha (anti-TNF-alpha) therapy, defined as presence of active PsA despite previous treatment with only 1 prior anti-TNF-alpha agent and the following: a.
- - Has other inflammatory diseases that might confound the evaluations of benefit of guselkumab and/or golimumab therapy, including but not limited to rheumatoid arthritis (RA), ankylosing spondylitis (AS), nonradiographic axial spondyloarthritis (nr AxSpA), systemic lupus erythematosus, or lyme disease.
- - Has known intolerance or hypersensitivity to any biologic medication, or known allergies or clinically significant reactions to murine, chimeric, or human proteins, monoclonal antibodies (mAb), or antibody fragments.
- - Has received prior treatment with golimumab or guselkumab or has documented intolerance to prior anti-TNF-alpha therapy in the participant history by the treating physician.
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 disease, disorder, syndrome, illness, or injury that is being studied.
PsA is a chronic inflammatory multi-faceted disease that impacts the peripheral and axial joints, soft tissues, and skin. Guselkumab is a fully human monoclonal antibody (mAb) directed against the p19 subunit of interleukin (IL)-23, blocks the binding of extracellular IL-23 to the cell surface IL-23 receptor, inhibiting IL-23 specific intracellular signaling, subsequent activation, and cytokine production. Golimumab is a fully human anti-TNF-alpha mAb that binds to TNF-alpha with high affinity, prevents binding to its receptors, thereby inhibiting the biological activity of TNF-alpha and resulting in limited production or activity of inflammatory cytokines, thereby providing therapeutic benefit in various chronic inflammatory disorders, including PsA. This study will consist of a Screening Phase (up to 6 weeks), Double-blind Phase from Weeks 0 to 24 which includes the active treatment phase and the primary efficacy visit (Week 24), and Safety Follow-up Phase from Week 24 to Week 36. Key safety assessments will include adverse events (AEs), clinical laboratory safety tests (hematology and chemistry), vital signs, monitoring for injection-site and hypersensitivity reactions, and early detection of active tuberculosis (TB). The total duration of the study is up to 42 weeks.
