Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of participants with adverse events as a measure of safety [ Time Frame: 19 weeks ]
    Safety as assessed by the number of participants with adverse events as measured by laboratory parameters, vital signs, electrocardiogram and the collection of serious and non-serious adverse events.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (PASI) [ Time Frame: 19 weeks ]
  2. Total CJM112 Concentrations in Serum [ Time Frame: 19 weeks ]
    Measurement of drug levels in the blood of treated patients.

  3. Concentration of anti-CJM112 Antibodies in Serum [ Time Frame: 19 weeks ]
    Assessment of the ability of the compound to evoke an immune response. Assessed in blood of treated patients.
