This study will provide data on sasety and efficacy of Ustekinumab in patients suffering from Palmo-Plantar Pustular Psoriasis (PPPP) or Palmo-Plantar Pustulosis(PPP)
Twenty patients with active Palmo-Plantar Pustular Psoriasis (cohort A) and twenty patients with active Palmo-Plantar Pustulosis (cohort B) will be included in this placebo-controlled double-blind study.Patients in each cohort will be randomized (1:1) to receive either ustekinumab S/C (Sub-Cutaneous) (45 mg for patients weighting 100 kg or less, and 90 mg for patients weighting more than 100 kg) or placebo.
Patients randomized to ustekinumab (10 with PPPP and 10 with PPP) will receive ustekinumab at Day 0, Weeks 4 and 16 and placebo at Week 20 whereas patients randomized to placebo (10 with PPPP and 10 with PPP) will receive placebo at Weeks 0 and 4 and ustekinumab at Weeks 16 and 20.
Patients will be seen at screening, Day 0, Weeks 4, 8, 16, 20, 24 and 28. The PPPASI (Palmo-Plantar Pustular Area and Severity Index), PPPGA (Palmo-Plantar Physician Global Assessment), PPSA (Palmo-Plantar Surface Area) will be used to evaluate severity and DLQI (Dermatology Life Quality Index), WPAI:PSO (Work Productivity and Activity Impairement Questionnaire:Psoriasis) and PPQoLI (Palmo-Plantar Quality of Life Index)will be used to evaluate quality of life. Safety will be assessed by physical examinations, evaluation of adverse events and laboratory analyses.
High quality digital medical photographs of palms and soles will be taken at Day 0, Weeks 4, 16 and 28. In addition, one optional skin biopsy from a palm or a sole will be performed at Day 0 and Week 16 and pus will be collected from pustules on palms and/or soles at Day 0 and Week 16. Finally, blood will be collected at Day 0 for genetic analysis from every patient who consents to DNA blood sampling.

A humanized monoclonal antibody that binds to IL-12 and IL-23 and is used as a DERMATOLOGIC AGENT in the treatment of patients with plaque PSORIASIS who have not responded to other therapies.
Inflammation of the thick tissue on the bottom of the foot (plantar fascia) causing HEEL pain. The plantar fascia (also called plantar aponeurosis) are bands of fibrous tissue extending from the calcaneal tuberosity to the TOES. The etiology of plantar fasciitis remains controversial but is likely to involve a biomechanical imbalance. Though often presenting along with HEEL SPUR, they do not appear to be causally related.
A fibromatosis of the plantar fascia characterized by thickening of the fibrous bands on the plantar aponeurosis in the sole of the foot and toes.
A bony outgrowth on the lower surface of the CALCANEUS. Though often presenting along with plantar fasciitis (FASCIITIS, PLANTAR), they are not considered causally related.
A common genetically determined, chronic, inflammatory skin disease characterized by rounded erythematous, dry, scaling patches. The lesions have a predilection for nails, scalp, genitalia, extensor surfaces, and the lumbosacral region. Accelerated epidermopoiesis is considered to be the fundamental pathologic feature in psoriasis.
