Accepts Healthy Volunteers
Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms
An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.
An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.
Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.
|Eligible Ages||5 Years - 17 Years|
This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.
Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.
Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.
Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.
Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.
The sponsor is the organization or person who oversees the clinical study and is responsible for analyzing the study data.

The disease, disorder, syndrome, illness, or injury that is being studied.
Juvenile psoriatic arthritis is a complex, chronic, progressive, debilitating musculoskeletal disease with significant remaining medical need. There is a need for medications which have a similar efficacy profile and a similar safety profile relative to currently available treatment for jPsA which include anti-tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF alpha) inhibitors (though mostly off-label) and secukinumab. STELARA (ustekinumab) is a fully human immunoglobulin G (IgG) 1 kappa monoclonal antibody (mAb) which binds with high affinity to the p40 subunit common to both interleukin (IL)-12 and IL 23 preventing IL-12/23p40 binding to the IL 12 Rb1 cell surface receptor shared by both cytokines. Through this mechanism of action, ustekinumab effectively neutralizes IL-12 T helper 1- and IL-23 T helper 17-mediated cellular responses. TREMFYA (guselkumab) is a fully human IgG1 lambda (G1 lambda) mAb that binds to the p19 subunit of human IL-23 with high affinity. The binding of guselkumab to IL-23 blocks the binding of extracellular IL-23 to the cell surface IL-23 receptor, inhibiting IL-23-specific intracellular signaling and subsequent activation and cytokine production. This study consists of Screening period (up to 6 weeks), Treatment period (up to 52 weeks) and a final safety visit at Week 68. The total duration of the study is up to 68 weeks.
Experimental: Cohort 1: Ustekinumab
Participants will receive a weight-based dose of ustekinumab subcutaneously (SC) at Week 0, Week 4 and then every 12 weeks up to Week 52.
Experimental: Cohort 2: Guselkumab
Participants without evidence of joint damage will be dosed with guselkumab at Week 0, Week 4 and then every 8 weeks up to Week 52. Participants with radiographic evidence of joint damage will be dosed with guselkumab every 4 weeks from Week 0 through Week 52. Participants at high risk of joint damage according to clinical judgement but should be considered for dosing every 4 weeks, depending upon the judgement of the study doctor.
Drug: - Ustekinumab
Ustekinumab will be administered as subcutaneous injection.
Drug: - Guselkumab
