This Study is Done in Patients With Plaque Psoriasis and Tests How Well They Tolerate BI 730357 and How Effective it is
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
The primary objective is based on Week 12 co-primary endpoints of PASI (Psoriasis Area and Severity Index) 75 and sPGA (Static Physician's Global Assessment) 0/1, and overall safety Secondary objectives are to evaluate the safety of BI 730357 through 24 weeks of treatment, and the effects of dose escalation and longer treatment duration on efficacy

PASI ≥12 and
sPGA moderate or severe
Signed and dated written informed consent in accordance with ICH-GCP and local legislation prior to admission to the trial
Nonplaque forms of PsO (including guttate, erythrodermic, or pustular), current druginduced PsO (including a new onset or exacerbation of PsO from, e.g., beta blockers, calcium channel blockers, lithium), active ongoing inflammatory diseases (including but not limited to Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)) other than PsO that might confound trial evaluations
Previous enrolment in this trial or previous exposure to BI 730357.
Currently enrolled in another investigational device or drug trial, or is less than 30 days (from randomisation) since ending another investigational device or drug trial(s), or is receiving other investigational treatment(s).
any biologic agent within 12 weeks, or
any anti IL-23 biologic agent within 24 weeks prior to randomisation, or
systemic anti-psoriatic medications or phototherapy within 4 weeks prior to randomisation, or
topical anti-psoriasis medications within 2 weeks prior to randomisation
Received a live vaccination within 12 weeks prior to randomisation (visit 2), or any plan to receive a live vaccination during the conduct of this trial
Patients who must or wish to continue the intake of restricted medications or any drug considered likely to interfere with the safe conduct of the trial
Patients not expected to comply with the protocol requirements or not expected to complete the trial as scheduled.
Chronic alcohol or drug abuse or any condition that, in the investigator's opinion, makes the patient an unreliable trial participant or unlikely to complete the trial.

Evidence of a current or previous disease (including known or suspected IBD, cardiovascular disease), or medical finding that in the opinion of the Investigator is clinically significant and would make the study participant unreliable to adhere to the protocol or to complete the trial, compromise the safety of the patient, or compromise the quality of the data.
