Start date September 2012
End date May 2017
Trial size 675 participants
Trial identifier NCT01640951, 2012-000985-39, CAIN457A2304E1


CAIN457A2304E1 is an extension study to two ongoing phase III studies, CAIN457A2304 and CAIN457A2307 (core studies). This extension study is planned to collect up to two years of long-term safety, tolerability and efficacy data of secukinumab in both the fixed interval regimen and the retreatment at start of relapse regimen. All subjects completing Week 52 of CAIN457A2304 and Week 40 of CAIN457A2307 will be eligible to participate in this extension study. Week 40 of the CAIN457A2307 study is the end of maintenance visit (EOM) and is equivalent to the Week 52 (EOM) of the CAIN457A2304 core study. Therefore, all subjects entering the CAIN457A2304E1 study will have received 52 weeks of treatment in their previous study / studies. In this extension study, the prefilled syringe (PFS) liquid formulation of secukinumab will be used.
