Safety Study of the Monoclonal Antibody Teplizumab (MGA031) in Subjects With Moderate or More Severe Psoriasis
The purpose of this study is to determine whether teplizumab is safe when administered subcutaneously (by needle under the skin) in subjects with psoriasis. The study will also evaluate how long teplizumab stays in the blood and how long it takes for it to leave the body, what is the highest dose that can safely be given, and whether it improves psoriasis.

|Official Title:||A Phase 2a, Open Label, Multiple-Dose Study to Evaluate Safety, Tolerability, Pharmacokinetics, Pharmacodynamics, and Immunogenicity of Teplizumab in Adults With Moderate or More Severe Psoriasis|
- Adverse Events (AE) [ Time Frame: Day 0 through Day 84 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Primary endpoints include safety data such as vital signs, physical examinations, electrocardiograms, AE reports, and laboratory test results.
- Number of Participants Improved on Lattice System Physician's Global Assessment (LS-PGA) [ Time Frame: Day 0, 14, 28, 63 and 84 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]The LS-PGA score is determined by estimating the extent of body surface area involved by psoriasis and rating plaque qualities (elevation, erythema, scaling) averaged over the entire body. LS-PGA score is then determined using available software. LS-PGA ranks involvement on an 8 point scale from clear, almost clear, mild, mild to moderate, moderate, moderate to severe, severe, and very severe. Participants who have an improvement of one or more steps in the LS-PGA will be considered to have met the primary criteria for a clinical response.
- Number of Participants Improved on the Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (PASI) [ Time Frame: Day 0, 14, 28, 63 and 84 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]The PASI combines assessments of the extent of body-surface involvement in 4 anatomical regions (head, trunk, arms, and legs) and the severity of plaque scale, erythema, and plaque induration (thickness) in each region, yielding an overall score of 0 for no psoriasis to a maximum of 72 for severe disease.
- Physician's Global Assessment (PGA) [ Time Frame: Day 0, 14, 28, 63 and 84 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]The PGA rates the subject's psoriasis relative to baseline as 1 (100% clearing), 2 (excellent: 75% through 99% clearing with striking improvement), 3 (good: 50% through 74% clearing with moderate improvement), 4 (fair: 25% through 49% clearing with slight improvement), 5 (poor: 0% through 24% clearing with little or no change), or 6 (worsening). Involvement of body-surface area, induration, scaling, and erythema are taken into account.

Anti CD-3 monoclonal antibody
Cohorts 1-5: escalating doses of subcutaneously administered teplizumab; cohort 6: intravenous administration of maximum tolerated subcutaneous dose.
Other Name: MGA031
This study will test the hypotheses that therapeutic modulation of T-cell function by teplizumab is well tolerated in subjects with moderate or more severe psoriasis, and that this treatment ameliorates the immunopathology of psoriasis. This study will evaluate the safety, pharmacokinetics (PK), and pharmacodynamics (PD) of subcutaneous (SC) administration for 6 days. Once the SC maximum tolerated dose is identified, this dose will be administered to a cohort of subject by intravenous for comparison of PK and PD.
