Inclusion criteria

  • Diagnosis of plaque psoriasis, with or without psoriatic arthritis, for at least 26 weeks prior to the first administration of study intervention
  • Total body surface area (BSA) greater than or equal to (>=)10 percent (%) at screening and baseline
  • Total psoriasis area and severity index (PASI) >=12 at screening and baseline
  • Total investigator global assessment (IGA) >=3 at screening and baseline
  • Candidate for phototherapy or systemic treatment for plaque psoriasis
  • A female participant of childbearing potential must have a negative highly sensitive serum pregnancy test beta-human chorionic gonadotropin (beta-hCG) at screening and a negative urine pregnancy test at Week 0 prior to administration of study intervention

Exclusion criteria

  • Nonplaque form of psoriasis (for example, erythrodermic, guttate, or pustular)
  • Current drug-induced psoriasis (for example, a new onset of psoriasis or an exacerbation of psoriasis from beta blockers, calcium channel blockers, or lithium)

Parallel Assignment


Double Blind

684 participants in 2 patient groups

Experimental group
Adolescent and adult participants will receive JNJ-77242113 from Week 0 through Week 156. At Week 24, adult participants who are psoriasis area and severity index (PASI) 75 or investigator global assessment (IGA) score of 0 or 1 responders (that is, those who achieve an IGA score of 0 or 1 and have \>=2-grade improvement from baseline) will be re-randomized either to continue JNJ-77242113 or to placebo (and will be retreated with JNJ-77242113 upon loss of \>=50% of their Week 24 PASI improvement). Adult participants identified as both PASI 75 and IGA 0 or 1 score non-responders will continue to receive JNJ-77242113 through Week 52. From Week 52 to Week 156, all adult participants will receive JNJ-77242113. Adolescents will not participate in re-randomization regardless of their PASI score or IGA score at Week 24. Adolescents will continue to receive JNJ-77242113 from Week 0 through Week 156.
Drug: JNJ-77242113
Experimental group
Adolescent and adult participants will receive JNJ-77242113 matching placebo from Week 0 to Week 16. Participants will cross-over to receive JNJ-77242113 from Week 16 through Week 156.
Drug: Placebo
