Awards & highlights


This trial is testing a new medication for plaque psoriasis to see if it is better than the current standard of care.

Who is the study for?
Adults aged 18-80 with moderate to severe chronic plaque psoriasis, stable for at least 2 months, and candidates for systemic therapy or phototherapy. They must have a BSA involvement of ≥10%, PASI score ≥12, sPGA ≥3, weigh <130 kg, and have good kidney and liver function. Women must not be pregnant and all participants should agree to use contraception.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study is testing the effectiveness and safety of two drugs: Bmab1200 versus Stelara in adults with chronic plaque psoriasis. It's a randomized (patients are assigned by chance), double-blind (neither patients nor researchers know who gets which treatment), active-controlled (comparing against an existing treatment) trial across multiple centers.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
While specific side effects aren't listed here, both Bmab1200 and Stelara can potentially cause immune system-related issues due to their nature as immunomodulatory therapies. This may include increased risk of infections or reactions at the injection site.

Mechanism Of Action
Side Effect Profile

Other Research
Plaque Psoriasis treatments often involve biologic agents that target specific components of the immune system to reduce inflammation and slow the overproduction of skin cells. Ustekinumab and similar agents like Bmab 1200 target interleukin-12 (IL-12) and interleukin-23 (IL-23), which are cytokines involved in the inflammatory pathways that contribute to psoriasis. By inhibiting these cytokines, these treatments can effectively reduce the severity of psoriasis symptoms. This is crucial for patients as it not only improves skin appearance but also reduces the risk of comorbid conditions such as cardiovascular disease, which is linked to chronic inflammation in psoriasis.
