Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Efficacy of Secukinumab Compared to Placebo in Subjects With Moderate to Severe Chronic Plaque-type Psoriasis at Week 12 Measure: PASI 75 (Psoriasis Area and Severity Index) Response. [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
    A 75% reduction in the Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (PASI) score (PASI 75) is the current benchmark of primary endpoints for most clinical trials of psoriasis

  2. Efficacy of Secukinumab Compared to Placebo in Subjects With Moderate to Severe Chronic Plaque-type Psoriasis Measure:IGA (Investigator's Global Assessment) With a 0 or 1 Response at Week 12 [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
    The IGA scale has been developed based on a previous version of the scale used in secukinumab phase II studies in collaboration with health authorities, in particular the FDA. The explanations/descriptions of the points on the scale have been improved to ensure appropriate differentiation between the points. The IGA used in this study is static, i.e. it refers exclusively to the subject's disease state at the time of the assessments, and does not attempt a comparison with any of the subject's previous disease states, whether at baseline or at a previous visit. IGA has a scale of 0-4 with the lower scores correlating to better performance. A score of 0= clear skin, 1= almost clear skin, 2=mild, 3=moderate,4=severe


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Absolute Change From Baseline in Self Injection Assessment Questionnaire (SIAQ) Domain Scores at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Week 12 ]
    The three domains of the POST SIAQ are feelings about injections, self-image, self-confidence, injection-site reactions, ease of use, and satisfaction with self-injection. The SIAQ items are scored on a semantic Likert-type scale where lower numbers indicate a worse experience. Domain scores range from 0 to 10. Subjects self-injecting at this visit completed this SIAQ questionnaire. The POST-SIAQ is taken after the injection at that visit.

  2. Absolute Change From Baseline in Self-Injection Assessment Questionnaire (SIAQ) Domain Scores at Week 48 [ Time Frame: Baseline, week 48 ]
    The three domains of the POST SIAQ are feelings about injections, self-image, self-confidence, injection-site reactions, ease of use, and satisfaction with self-injection. The SIAQ items are scored on a semantic Likert-type scale where lower numbers indicate a worse experience. Domain scores range from 0 to 10. Subjects self-injecting at this visit completed this SIAQ questionnaire. The POST-SIAQ is taken after the injection at that visit.

  3. Number of Subjects With Potential Use Related Hazards at Week 1 [ Time Frame: Week 1 ]
    To assess potential use-related hazards with the secukinumab PFS for the subject

  4. Percentage of Subjects With Successful Self Administration of Study Drug at Week 1 [ Time Frame: Week 1 ]
    To assess the subject's ability to follow instructions for use with the secukinumab PFS

  5. Percent of Responders With Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (PASI) Equal to or Greater Than 50, PASI 75, PASI 90, PASI 100, (Induction) With Non-responder Imputation [ Time Frame: Week 12 ]
    PASI is a combined assessment of lesion severity and affected area into a single score: 0 (no disease) to 72 (maximal disease). Body is divided into 4 areas for scoring (head, arms, trunk, legs; each area is scored by itself and scores are combined for final PASI. For each area, percent of skin involved is estimated: 0 (0%) to 6 (90-100%), and severity is estimated by clinical signs, erythema, induration and desquamation; scale 0 (none) to 4 (maximum). Final PASI = sum of severity parameters for each area* area score weight of section (head: 0.1, arms: 0.2 body: 0.3 legs: 0.4). PASI 50, 75, 90 and 100 were defined as participants achieving ≥ 50%, 75%, 90% or 100% improvement from baseline.

  6. Percent of Responders With Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (PASI) Equal to or Greater Than 50, PASI 75, PASI 90, PASI 100, (Maintenance; Observed Data) [ Time Frame: Week 52 ]

For each area, percent of skin involved is estimated: 0 (0%) to 6 (90-100%), and severity is estimated by clinical signs, erythema, induration and desquamation; scale 0 (none) to 4 (maximum). Final PASI = sum of severity parameters for each area* area score weight of section (head: 0.1, arms: 0.2 body: 0.3 legs: 0.4). PASI 50, 75, 90 and 100 were defined as participants achieving ≥ 50%, 75%, 90% or 100% improvement from baseline.

  7. Percent of Responders With Investigator's Global Assessment (IGA) Mod 2011 Score of 0 or 1, (Maintenance; Observed Data) [ Time Frame: Week 52 ]

The scores are: 0 = clear, 1 = almost clear, 2 = mild, 3 = moderate and 4 = severe.
