Brief Summary:
This study to provide up to 52 weeks of efficacy, safety and tolerability data to support registration of intravenous (i.v.) secukinumab (Initial dose of 6 mg/kg at Baseline (BSL) followed thereafter with 3 mg/kg administered every four weeks) in patients with active psoriatic arthritis (PsA) despite current or previous NSAID, DMARD and/or anti-TNF therapy.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Psoriatic Arthritis Drug: Secukinumab Drug: Placebo Phase 3

Detailed Description:

This multicenter study uses a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group design. A screening (SCR) period running up to 10 weeks before randomization will be used to assess subject eligibility followed by a treatment period of 52 weeks.

At baseline, approximately 380 patients with active psoriatic arthritis will be randomized to one of the two treatment groups in a 1:1 randomization:

Group 1: Approximately 190 patients with active psoriatic arthritis; These patients will receive secukinumab 6 mg/kg i.v. at BSL, followed by the administration of secukinumab 3 mg/kg i.v. every four weeks starting at Week 4.

Group 2: Approximately 190 patients with active psoriatic arthritis; These patients will receive i.v. placebo at BSL and at Weeks 4, 8, and 12, followed by the administration of secukinumab 3 mg/kg i.v. every four weeks starting at Week 16.

Study will consist of 4 periods: a screening period (up to 10 weeks), treatment period 1 (total duration of 16 weeks) and treatment period 2 (total duration of 36 weeks) followed by a safety follow up period of 8 weeks after the end of treatment visit (i.e., Week 52).

Primary endpoint analysis will be performed with Week 16 data (last patient completing Treatment period 1 (Week 16). Long-term efficacy and safety assessments will be performed up to Week 52.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 380 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Quadruple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Masking Description:

This is a double-blind, randomized treatment trial.

Subjects, investigator staff, persons performing the assessments will remain blinded to the identity of the treatment from the time of randomization until Week 60 database lock, using the following methods:

  1. Randomization data are kept strictly confidential until the time of unblinding and will not be accessible by anyone else involved in the study with the exception of the bioanalyst.
  2. The identity of the treatments will be concealed by the use of study treatments in the form of i.v. injection, filled with secukinumab or placebo that are identical in appearance.
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled, Parallel Group, Phase III Multicenter Study of Intravenous Secukinumab to Compare Efficacy at 16 Weeks With Placebo and to Assess Safety and Tolerability up to 52 Weeks in Subjects With Active Psoriatic Arthritis

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Proportion of subjects achieving American College of Rheumatology 50 (ACR50) response criteria [ Time Frame: Week 16 ]

    To demonstrate that the efficacy of i.v. secukinumab at Week 16 is superior to placebo in subjects with active psoriatic arthritis (PsA) based on the proportion of patients achieving an American College of Rheumatology 50 (ACR50) response

    The ACR50 is a composite measure defined as both improvement of 50% in the number of tender and number of swollen joints, and a 50% improvement in three of the following five criteria: patient global assessment, physician global assessment, functional ability measure [most often Health Assessment Questionnaire (HAQ)], visual analog pain scale, and erythrocyte sedimentation rate or C-reactive protein (CRP)



Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Proportion of subjects achieving American College of Rheumatology 20 (ACR20) response [ Time Frame: Week 16 ]

    Improvement of ≥ 20% in tender and swollen joint count and ≥3 units in at least 3 of 5 domains as described in ACR50.

    The ACR20 is a composite measure defined as both improvement of 20% in the number of tender and number of swollen joints, and a 20% improvement in three of the following five criteria: patient global assessment, physician global assessment, functional ability measure [most often Health Assessment Questionnaire (HAQ)], visual analog pain scale, and erythrocyte sedimentation rate or C-reactive protein (CRP)


  2. Proportion of patients achieving Minimal Disease Activity (MDA) 5/7 [ Time Frame: Week 16 ]
    MDA is assessed as 5 of the 7 following: ≤ 1 tender and swollen joint; entheseal count, PASI ≤ 1 or BSA ≤3%, PsA ≤ 15 and disease activity ≤ 20 (VAS) and HAQ-DI© ≤ 0.5

  3. Proportion of subjects achieving a Psoriasis Area and Severity Index 90 (PASI90) response [ Time Frame: Week 16 ]
    Change from baseline for PASI90, 4 items measured in 4 body areas to reflect psoriasis lesional burden (Range 0-72). Higher scores represent worsening severity

  4. Change from baseline for the PsA Disease Activity Score (PASDAS) [ Time Frame: Week 16 ]
    Change from baseline for PASDAS (Range: 0-10), with higher scores indicating worse disease activity

  5. Change from baseline for the Health Assessment Questionnaire - Disability Index (HAQ-DI) [ Time Frame: Week 16 ]
    Change from baseline for HAQ-DI (Range: 0-3). Higher scores indicate severe disability

  6. Change from baseline for the Short Form 36-Physical Component Summary (SF36-PCS) [ Time Frame: Week 16 ]
    Change from baseline for SF36-PCS (Range: 0-100), with higher scores indicating better health status.

  7. Change from baseline for the Functional Assessment of Chronic Illness Therapy-Fatigue (FACIT-F) [ Time Frame: Week 16 ]
    Change from baseline for FACIT-F on 0-4 response scale. Range: 0-52. Higher scores indicate better quality of life

  8. Change from baseline for the Modified Nail Psoriasis Severity Index (mNAPSI) [ Time Frame: Week 16 ]
    7 groups of features for each fingernail (Score: 0-130). Higher scores represent worse nail disease

  9. Proportion of subjects with dactylitis in the subset of subjects who have dactylitis at baseline [ Time Frame: Week 16 ]
    Finger size and tenderness (Range 0-20). A higher score implies worse dactylitis

  10. Proportion of subjects with enthesitis in the subset of subjects who have enthesitis at baseline [ Time Frame: Week 16 ]
    6 enthesial sites and tenderness (Range: 0 -6). Higher count implies greater enthesitis burden

  11. Assessment of safety and tolerability of i.v. secukinumab compared to placebo [ Time Frame: Week 16 ]
    The incidence of clinically significant abnormal laboratory values/test results and adverse, serious adverse events (by review of values outside clinically notable ranges, significant changes from Baseline or the previous visit, or values, which are considered to be non-typical in participants with underlying disease)
