Treatment: Injection Age: 18 Years

Adults aged 18 years or older with Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS) for at least 1 year, may qualify to participate. Individuals must have HS lesions present in at least 2 distinct anatomic areas, as well as moderate to severe disease. Qualified participants must also have an inadequate response to a course of appropriate oral antibiotics for treatment of HS, and have a total abscess and inflammatory nodule (AN) count of 5 or more.

During the placebo-controlled period, participants will receive investigational medication (active study drug), comparator medication, or placebo via injection. During the active treatment period, participants will receive active study drug or comparator medication. Study medication and study-related assessments will be provided at no cost. Reimbursement for study-related expenses will also be provided.
