COVID-19 studies are our top priority. For all other trials, there is a 4-week delay in processing a trial submitted/resubmitted to the ANZCTR and additional delays for updates of registered trials. We appreciate your patience.

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been endorsed by the ANZCTR. Before participating in a study, talk to your health care provider and refer to this information for consumers

Eligibility
Key inclusion criteria
1. Subjects should be 18 years or older at the time of signing the informed consent
during the Screening visit.

2. Subjects with a clinical diagnosis of chronic plaque psoriasis of at least 6 months
(as determined by-subject interview and confirmation of diagnosis through physical
examination by Investigator).

3. Subjects must have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis of the scalp at Screening and
at Baseline, defined by:

- Scalp Investigator Global Assessment (IGA) of =3

- Psoriasis Scalp Severity Index (PSSI) score of =12

- =30% or scalp surface area affected.

4. Subject must have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis at Screening and Baseline
defined by

- Physician Global Assessment for Skin (PGA-S) of at least moderate severity (score
of =3 on a 5-pointer scale)

- PASI score of =12

- Body Surface Area (BSA) involvement of >10%

5. Subjects must be considered candidates for systemic therapy, meaning scalp psoriasis
inadequately controlled by topical treatments (corticosteroids), and/or phototherapy,
and/or previous systemic therapy.

6. Subjects has a negative evaluation for tuberculosis (TB) within 4 weeks before
initiating study treatment, defined as a negative QuantiFERON® test. Subjects with a
positive or 2 successive indeterminate. QuantiFERON® tests are allowed if they have
all of the following:

- No history of active TB or symptoms of TB.

- A posterior-anterior chest radiogram (with associated report available at study
center) performed within 3 months of Screening with no evidence of active TB (or
of any other pulmonary infectious diseases).

- If prior latent TB infection (LTBI), must have history of adequate prophylaxis
(per local standard of care).

- If presence of LTBI is established, then treatment according to local country
guidelines must have been followed for 4 weeks prior to inclusion in the study.

A maximum of 2 QuantiFERON® tests are allowed. A re-test is only permitted if the
first is indeterminate; the result of the second test will then be used.

7. Subjects are unlikely to conceive, as indicated by at least one "Yes" answer to the
following questions:

- Subject is a male.

- Subject is a female and agrees to abstain from heterosexual activity OR use a
highly effective method of contraception as per Appendix 7.

- Male subjects with female partners of childbearing potential who are not using
birth control as described above must use a barrier method of contraception (eg,
condom) if not surgically sterile (ie, vasectomy).

- Subject is a surgically sterilized female or is documented to be postmenopausal.
For contraceptive guidance see Appendix 7.

8. For women of childbearing potential, a negative serum pregnancy test at Screening and
a negative urine pregnancy test within 24 hours prior to Day 1 and on subsequent
visits at which study treatment doses are scheduled.

9. Subjects must have results of a physical examination within normal limits or
clinically acceptable limits to the Investigator prior to Day 1. The Investigator is
encouraged to consult with the Medical Monitor (or appropriate designee) if there are
questions regarding the significance of any out-of-range values.

10. Subjects must be capable of giving signed informed consent as described in Appendix 2,
which includes compliance with the requirements and restrictions listed in the ICF and
in this protocol.

Key exclusion criteria
1. Subjects who have laboratory abnormalities at Screening including any of the
following:

- Alanine aminotransferase or aspartate aminotransferase =2.5 × the upper limit of
normal

- Creatinine =2 × the upper limit of normal

- Serum direct bilirubin =1.5 mg/dL

- White blood cell count <3.0×103/µL

- Any other laboratory abnormality, which, in the opinion of the Investigator, will
prevent the subject from completing the study or will interfere with the
interpretation of the study results.

2. Subjects who have predominantly non-plaque forms of psoriasis specifically
erythrodermic psoriasis, predominantly pustular psoriasis, medication-induced or
medication-exacerbated psoriasis, or new-onset guttate psoriasis.

3. Women of childbearing potential who are pregnant, intend to become pregnant (within 6
months of completing the study), or are lactating.

4. Subjects with any infection or history of recurrent infection requiring treatment with
systemic antibiotics within 2 weeks prior to Screening, or severe infection (eg,
pneumonia, cellulitis, bone or joint infections) requiring hospitalization or
treatment with intravenous (IV) antibiotics within 6 weeks prior to Screening.

5. Subjects with any previous use of tildrakizumab or other IL-23/Th-17 pathway
inhibitors, including p40, p19 and IL-17 antagonists for psoriasis.

• Prior use of TNF-alpha inhibitors with a wash-out period of 12 weeks would be
allowed. However, the number of subjects with prior use of TNF-alpha inhibitors would
be capped at 40% and the analysis will be stratified based on prior use of these
biologics.

6. Subjects with a positive human immunodeficiency virus test result, hepatitis B surface
antigen, or hepatitis C virus test result.

7. Subjects with a prior malignancy or concurrent malignancy (excluding successfully
treated basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma of the skin in situ, squamous
cell carcinoma of skin with no evidence of recurrence within 5 years or carcinoma in
situ of the cervix that has been adequately treated).

8. Subjects who have received live viral or bacterial vaccination within 4-weeks prior to
Baseline or who intend to receive live viral or bacterial vaccination during the
study.

9. Subjects who are currently participating in another interventional clinical study or
has participated in an interventional clinical study within 5-half-lives (of the drug)
to wash-out prior to randomization (Subjects participating in observational studies or
non-interventional registry studies may be included in the study).

10. Subjects or a family member is among the personnel of the study center or
Sponsor/designee staff directly involved with this study.

11. Subjects who have any concomitant medical condition which in the opinion of the
Investigator could affect the study outcome or present an unacceptable risk.

12. Subjects who were hospitalized due to an acute cardiovascular event (such as
myocardial infarction, cerebrovascular accident, cardiovascular illness [eg, angina
pectoris], or cardiovascular surgery [such as coronary artery bypass grafting]) within
6 months before Screening.

13. Subjects who, in the opinion of the Investigator, will not be a reliable participant
in the study and those who can confound the results of the study.

14. Subjects who have a history of alcohol or drug abuse in the previous year.

15. Subjects who have high risk of suicidality at the Screening assessment based on
Investigator's judgment or, if appropriate, as indicated by a response of "yes" within
the last 12 months to Questions 4 or 5 in the suicidal ideation section, or any
positive response in the behavioral section of the Columbia-Suicide Severity Rating
Scale

16. Subjects with any other clinically significant laboratory abnormality, which, in the
opinion of the Investigator, will prevent the subject from completing the study or
will interfere with the interpretation of the study results.
