BACKGROUND: Risankizumab is a humanized IgG monoclonal antibody that selectively inhibits interleukin-23 through binding the p19 subunit. In Phase 3 trials, risankizumab demonstrated superior efficacy compared with adalimumab and ustekinumab in patients with moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis. Here, we evaluated the impact of baseline characteristics on efficacy of risankizumab compared with ustekinumab in patients with moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis. METHODS: This analysis included all patients initially randomized to risankizumab or ustekinumab from the replicate, double-blinded, randomized, placebo-controlled phase 3 trials, UltIMMa-1 (NCT02684370) and UltIMMa-2 (NCT02684357).
