Drug: Ustekinumab
Patients randomized to ustekinumab (10 with PPPP and 10 with PPP) will receive ustekinumab at Day 0, Weeks 4 and 16 and placebo at Week 20
Placebo Comparator: Placebo
Placebo S/C (Sodium Chloride). 10 with PPPP and 10 with PPP will receive placebo at Weeks 0 and 4 and ustekinumab at Weeks 16 and 20
Drug: Placebo (Soduim Chloride)
Patients randomized to placebo (10 with PPPP and 10 with PPP) will receive placebo at Weeks 0 and 4 and ustekinumab at Weeks 16 and 20

Detailed Description:

Twenty patients with active Palmo-Plantar Pustular Psoriasis (cohort A) and twenty patients with active Palmo-Plantar Pustulosis (cohort B) will be included in this placebo-controlled double-blind study.Patients in each cohort will be randomized (1:1) to receive either ustekinumab S/C (Sub-Cutaneous) (45 mg for patients weighting 100 kg or less, and 90 mg for patients weighting more than 100 kg) or placebo.

Patients randomized to ustekinumab (10 with PPPP and 10 with PPP) will receive ustekinumab at Day 0, Weeks 4 and 16 and placebo at Week 20 whereas patients randomized to placebo (10 with PPPP and 10 with PPP) will receive placebo at Weeks 0 and 4 and ustekinumab at Weeks 16 and 20.

Patients will be seen at screening, Day 0, Weeks 4, 8, 16, 20, 24 and 28. The PPPASI (Palmo-Plantar Pustular Area and Severity Index), PPPGA (Palmo-Plantar Physician Global Assessment), PPSA (Palmo-Plantar Surface Area) will be used to evaluate severity and DLQI (Dermatology Life Quality Index), WPAI:PSO (Work Productivity and Activity Impairement Questionnaire:Psoriasis) and PPQoLI (Palmo-Plantar Quality of Life Index)will be used to evaluate quality of life. Safety will be assessed by physical examinations, evaluation of adverse events and laboratory analyses.

High quality digital medical photographs of palms and soles will be taken at Day 0, Weeks 4, 16 and 28. In addition, one optional skin biopsy from a palm or a sole will be performed at Day 0 and Week 16 and pus will be collected from pustules on palms and/or soles at Day 0 and Week 16. Finally, blood will be collected at Day 0 for genetic analysis from every patient who consents to DNA blood sampling.
