Brief Summary:
This study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of GSK2894512 cream for the topical treatment of plaque psoriasis (psoriasis) with its vehicle cream. This is a randomized, double-blind, vehicle-controlled, parallel-group, multicenter study in adults with psoriasis. The aim of this study is to show superiority of GSK2894512 over vehicle by comparing their response rates. The study will consist of 3 periods: up to 4 weeks screening, 12 weeks blinded treatment, and 1 week post-treatment follow-up period. Subjects will apply randomized study treatment to all psoriasis lesions once daily for 12 weeks. Subjects will be stratified by Baseline physician global assessment (PGA) category (PGA score=2, PGA score >=3) at randomization. Approximately 120 subjects will be randomized into the study of which 80 will receive GSK2894512 1% cream and 40 will receive vehicle cream. Total duration of a subject's participation in the study will be approximately for 14 to 17 weeks.

Drug: Vehicle cream
Vehicle cream will be provided in tubes labeled in compliance with country requirements.

Primary Outcome Measures :
    PGA is a clinical tool (a 5 point scale) for assessing the current state/severity of a subject's psoriasis. It is a morphological assessment of overall disease severity, as determined by the investigator, using the clinical characteristics of erythema, scaling, and plaque thickness/elevation as guidelines. Subjects will be scored using the following categories: 0=Clear; 1=Almost clear; 2=Mild; 3=Moderate; and 4=Severe.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Proportion of subjects with >=75% improvement in Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (PASI) from Baseline to Week 12 [ Time Frame: Baseline (Day 1) and up to Week 12 ]
    The PASI scoring system is a widely-used standard clinical tool for assessing the severity of psoriasis that takes into account the overall severity of erythema (redness), induration (plaque thickness), and scale, and the extent of percent body surface area (%BSA) affected with psoriasis. The 3 clinical signs are each graded on a 5-point scale (0=None; 4=Severe) and the % BSA affected is scored on a 7-point scale (0=0%; 6>=90%) for each of the 4 specified body regions (head, upper extremities, trunk, and lower extremities). The individual scores are multiplied by a weighted factor for each body region; the sum of these scores gives the overall PASI score. Higher scores indicate more severe disease.

    The severity and bother of psoriasis-related itching, stinging, burning, pain, and scaling and impact items about the embarrassment, avoidance of activities with other people, and movement restrictions will be assessed using Psoriasis Symptom Diary. It is a 16-item electronic, daily (24-hour recall), validated assessment that measures self-reports of psoriasis symptoms and impact on functional health. Each item will be rated on a 0 to 10 NRS, with unlabeled numbers in between the labeled anchors. Higher scores indicate more severe symptoms, bother, or impact.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Age >=18 years at the time of signing the informed consent.
  • Clinical diagnosis of chronic stable plaque psoriasis. Diagnosis and chronicity to be confirmed and documented by an experienced dermatologist.
  • Body surface area involvement >=2%.
  • A PGA score of >=2.
  • One target plaque located on the trunk or extremities that is at least 9 centimeter (cm)^2 in size with a target plaque severity score (TPSS) >=5 and an induration sub score >=2. Primary target plaque should not be located on the knees, elbows, feet, ankle, hands, intertriginous areas, face, or scalp.)
  • Male or female. A female is eligible to participate if she is not pregnant, not breastfeeding, and at least one of the following conditions applies:

    • Not a woman of childbearing potential (WOCBP), OR
    • Is a WOCBP who agrees to follow the specified contraceptive guidance throughout the study, including screening, during the treatment period, and for at least 1 week after the last exposure to study treatment.
  • Capable of giving signed informed consent

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Psoriasis other than plaque variant.
  • Any sign of infection of any of the psoriatic lesions.
  • Concurrent conditions and history of other diseases:

    • Immunocompromised (examples: lymphoma, acquired immunodeficiency syndrome) or have a history of malignant disease within 5 years before the Baseline visit.
