The present study describes a subgroup analysis of 33 Japanese patients participating in UNCOVER-1, an international, placebo-controlled, phase 3 study of ixekizumab in patients with moderate-to-severe psoriasis. Patients were randomized to a placebo (n = 13) or ixekizumab 80 mg every 4 (IXEQ4W, n = 12) or 2 (IXEQ2W, n = 8) weeks, from week 0-12. At week 12, ixekizumab-treated patients with a static Physician Global Assessment score 0 or 1 (sPGA [0,1]; n = 16) were re-randomized to a placebo (n = 6), ixekizumab 80 mg every 12 (IXEQ12W, n = 5) or 4 (IXEQ4W, n = 5) weeks, from week 12-60.
