AbbVie announced the start of a Phase 3 trial that will evaluate Humira (adalimumab) as a treatment for fingernail psoriasis in patients with moderate to severe chronic plaque psoriasis.

The multinational, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial will last 26 weeks and will enroll 200 patients with moderate to severe chronic plaque psoriasis with fingernail psoriasis. The primary endpoints will be evaluated after 26 weeks and will assess the percent of patients who achieve a Physicians Global Assessment of Fingernail Psoriasis (PGA-F) of either “clear” or “minimal”. It will also evaluate the percent of patients who achieve a 75% reduction in fingernail psoriasis, as defined by the modified Nail Psoriasis Severity Index (mNAPSI).
