Study Description

  • Brief Summary:

    This is a study to understand if taking VTX958 daily orally is safe and effective in participants diagnosed with moderate to severe psoriasis (PsO). Approximately 200 patients will take VTX958 Dose A, VTX958 Dose B, VTX958 Dose C, VTX958 Dose D, or placebo. The study consists of a 30-day Screening Period (to see if a participant qualifies for the study), a 16-week double-blind period (a participant receives active Dose A, Dose B, Dose C, Dose D, or placebo), and a 4-week Follow-Up Period. The maximal duration of treatment will be 4 months
