A Global Study Comparing an Active Drug to Placebo in Adult Participants With Moderate to Severe Hidradenitis Suppurativa

Brief summary

This study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of 2 dose levels of an active drug in adult participants with moderate to severe Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS). This study includes two treatment periods. In Period A, participants are randomized to receive either an active drug dose A, dose B, or placebo. In Period B, participants who received an active drug dose A or placebo during Period A, will receive an active drug dose B. Participants who received an active drug dose B in Period A will remain on that dose in Period B.
