Efficacy and Safety Study of Apremilast (CC-10004) in Pediatric Subjects From 6 Through 17 Years of Age With Moderate to Severe Plaque Psoriasis
This is a Phase 3, multicenter, randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind study of the efficacy and safety of apremilast (CC-10004) in pediatric subjects with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.
At least 230 pediatric subjects (ages 6 through 17 years) will be randomized 2:1 to receive either apremilast or placebo for the first 16 weeks and then all subjects will receive apremilast during the 36 week Extension Phase for a total of 52 weeks. Randomization to apremilast arm or placebo arm will be stratified by age group (6 to 11 years or 12 to 17 years). Subjects will receive apremilast treatment of either 20 mg twice daily (BID) or 30 mg BID, depending on weight. This Phase 3 study is being conducted to evaluate the safety and efficacy of apremilast in the treatment of pediatric subjects.
Stanford is currently accepting patients for this trial.
