Inclusion Criteria

  • Patients with GPPGA of 0 or 1 and a known and documented history of GPP per European Rare And Severe Psoriasis Expert Network (ERASPEN) criteria regardless of IL36RN mutation status, with previous evidence of fever, and/or asthenia, and/or myalgia, and/or elevated C-reactive protein, and/or leucocytosis with peripheral blood neutrophilia (above ULN) OR
  • - Patients with an acute flare of moderate to severe intensity meeting the (ERASPEN) criteria of GPP with a known and documented history of GPP (per ERASPEN criteria) regardless of IL36RN mutation status, with previous evidence of fever, and/or asthenia, and/or myalgia, and/or elevated C-reactive protein, and/or leucocytosis with peripheral blood neutrophilia (above ULN)
  • Male or female patients, aged 18 to 75 years at screening.

  • Women of childbearing potential must be ready and able to use highly effective methods of birth control per ICH M3 (R2) that result in a low failure rate of less than 1% per year when used consistently and correctly. Note: A woman is considered of childbearing potential, i.e. fertile, following menarche and until becoming postmenopausal unless permanently sterile. Permanent sterilisation methods include hysterectomy, bilateral salpingectomy and bilateral oophorectomy. Tubal ligation is not a method of permanent sterilization. A postmenopausal state is defined as no menses for 12 months without an alternative medical cause
