Brodalumab (AMG 827), a human anti-interleukin-17-receptor monoclonal antibody, was recently tested for safety and efficacy for treating moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis. Patients with a score of 12 or higher on the psoriasis area and severity index (PASI) and with 10% or more of their body surface area affected by psoriasis were randomly assigned to receive either brodalumab or a placebo. The primary end point of this study was to improve baseline PASI percentages.At week 12, the mean percentage improvements in the PASI score were 45% among patients receiving 70 mg of brodalumab, 85.9% for those receiving 140 mg, and 86.3% for those receiving 210 mg. The placebo group had a 16% mean improvement score.
