Do you have psoriasis?

The POETYK study: A clinical trial to assess a new drug for psoriasis

Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory skin disorder, characterised primarily by scaly plaques, that affects up to 3% of the general population. Many patients with severe disease are still being managed with only topical treatments, and many patients consider their psoriasis treatment to be inadequate.

The purpose of this research project is to measure how safe and effective BMS-986165 (the investigational drug) is in treating participants with moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis. Prior research studies have shown that BMS-986165 may help control the immune system that is responsible for the signs and symptoms of psoriasis by controlling the molecules in the body responsible for inflammation within the skin.
