Psoriasis is a chronic, systemic, inflammatory disease in which skin cells build up and develop thick, red and white scaly patches on the skin. This study evaluates adverse events and change in disease activity with risankizumab in pediatric participants with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis who completed the study M19-977. Risankizumab is an approved drug for treatment of moderate to severe plaque psoriasis in adults and is being studied in the pediatric population (6 to 17 years). A maximum of 132 participants will be enrolled in the study across approximately 50 sites worldwide. Participants will receive subcutaneous injection of risankizumab every 12 weeks for 204 weeks and are followed up for safety for 20 weeks after last dose. There may be higher treatment burden for participants in this trial compared to their standard of care. Participants will attend regular visits during the study at a hospital or clinic. The effect of the treatment will be checked by medical assessments, blood tests, checking for side effects and completing questionnaires.
From 6 Years to 17 Years.
