Secukinumab is an anti-IL17A drug being investigated for a number of inflammatory conditions. For plaque psoriasis, Novartis is planning to evaluate a dose of 150 mg subcutaneously compared with placebo.

The primary outcome measure of the planned Phase III trial named ERASURE is to evaluate the efficacy in patients with moderate to severe chronic plaque-type psoriasis. Novartis is also planning to evaluate secukinumab dosed at either 150 or 300 mg versus Enbrel (enterecept) 50 mg in a Phase III trial entitled FIXTURE.

Final data collection for the primary outcome measures in both ERASURE and FIXTURE are anticipated in March 2013.

Secukinumab is a human monoclonal antibody designed for the treatments of uveitis,rheumatoid arthritis, and psoriasis. It targets member A from the cytokine family ofinterleukin 17.[1][2]

Secukinumab was developed by Novartis Pharma AG and has completed Phase II clinical trials for plaque psoriasis in 2011.[3]
