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.

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.

jPsA 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 well-characterized safety profile relative to currently available tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF alpha) inhibitors for jPsA participants with active disease. STELARA (ustekinumab) is a fully human immunoglobulin G1 kappa monoclonal antibody 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. Ustekinumab has been extensively studied in adult participants with psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis (PsA), Crohn's disease, and ulcerative colitis (UC). Additionally, ustekinumab has been studied in children (greater than or equal to [>=] 6 to less than [<] 12 years of age) and adolescents (>=12 to <18 years of age) with pediatric psoriasis [PsO]. This study consists of 3 visits: screening (Visit 1), interim and final visit (Visits 2 and 3) (Visits should be >=7 days apart). Key safety assessments include analyses of the incidence and types of adverse events (AEs), serious adverse events (SAEs), reasonably related AEs, and discontinuation of ustekinumab due to an AE, infections, and/or injection site and hypersensitivity reactions. Any newly identified malignancy, case of active tuberculosis (TB), or opportunistic infection will also be assessed. The total duration of the study is up to 20 weeks.
Experimental: Cohort 1: Juvenile Psoriatic Arthritis (jPsA)
Participants (aged greater than or equal to [>=] 5 to less than [<] 18 years) will receive ustekinumab at the dose and frequency as prescribed by their treating health care professional (HCP).
Experimental: Cohort 2: Pediatric Psoriasis (PsO)
Participants (aged >=6 to <18 years) will receive ustekinumab at the dose and frequency as prescribed by their treating HCP.
Drug: - Ustekinumab
This study does not provide dosing instructions for ustekinumab but will engage participants who have been treated with ustekinumab by their corresponding HCPs independent of this study.
