Kimball AB, Gordon KB, Langley RG, et al. Safety and Efficacy of ABT-874, a Fully Human Interleukin 12/23 Monoclonal Antibody, in the Treatment of Moderate to Severe Chronic Plaque Psoriasis: Results of a Randomized, Placebo-Controlled, Phase 2 Trial. Arch Dermatol. 2008;144(2):200–207. doi:10.1001/archdermatol.2007.63
To investigate the efficacy and safety of ABT-874, an interleukin 12/23 monoclonal antibody, in psoriasis.
Phase 2, 12-week, multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial.
Outpatient dermatology clinics.
One hundred eighty patients with clinically stable moderate to severe chronic plaque psoriasis.
Patients were randomized in groups of 30 to receive 1 of 6 treatments with ABT-874 provided as a subcutaneous injection: one 200-mg dose at week 0; 100 mg every other week for 12 weeks; 200 mg weekly for 4 weeks; 200 mg every other week for 12 weeks; 200 mg weekly for 12 weeks; or placebo.
Main Outcome Measure
At least a 75% reduction in the Psoriasis Area and Severity Index.
The percentage of patients achieving a 75% reduction in the Psoriasis Area and Severity Index at week 12 was statistically significantly greater in all of the ABT-874 treatment groups than in the placebo group (200 mg once, 63% [19 of 30]; 100 mg every other week for 12 weeks, 93% [28 of 30]; 200 mg weekly for 4 weeks, 90% [27 of 30]; 200 mg every other week for 12 weeks, 93% [28 of 30]; 200 mg weekly for 12 weeks, 90% [27 of 30]; placebo, 3% [1 of 30]; P < .001). Treatment with ABT-874 was well tolerated. The most common adverse event was injection-site reaction, and the most common infectious adverse events were nasopharyngitis and upper respiratory tract infection. There were no serious infectious adverse events.
ABT-874, an interleukin 12/23 monoclonal antibody, was highly effective and well tolerated in the treatment of psoriasis. Longer-term studies are required to confirm these findings.
