About SPIRIT

SPIRIT was a Phase 2, multi-center, double-blind, placebo-controlled study evaluating the use of REMICADE induction therapy in 249 people with severe plaque psoriasis who had previously received psoralen plus ultraviolet light A (PUVA) or systemic therapy for psoriasis. Trial participants were randomized to receive REMICADE 3 mg/kg, REMICADE 5 mg/kg or placebo at weeks 0, 2, and 6 and were assessed biweekly for 10 weeks. At week 26, patients whose Physician Global Assessment (PGA) score indicated moderate to severe disease (n=114) were eligible for one additional infusion of their assigned treatment to assess the safety of retreatment after a 20-week treatment-free period.

In the SPIRIT trial, the percentage of patients with one or more AE was higher in the REMICADE groups compared with placebo. Through week 30 of the SPIRIT trial, 63 percent, 78 percent and 79 percent of patients in the placebo, REMICADE 3 mg/kg and 5 mg/kg groups, respectively, reported one or more AE. The most commonly reported side effects versus placebo were upper respiratory tract infection (15 percent versus 14 percent), headache (15 percent versus 8 percent) and itching (12 percent versus 0 percent). A total of 6 percent of REMICADE-treated patients reported serious AEs
