Summary: The main purpose of this trial is to evaluate the efficacy of PTC923 in reducing blood phenylalanine (Phe) levels in participants with phenylketonuria as measured by mean change in blood Phe levels from baseline to Weeks 5 and 6 (that is, the average of each respective treatment dose 2-week period of double-blind treatment).

Inclusion Criteria:

- Blood Phe level ≥360 μmol/L anytime during screening, or blood Phe level ≥360 μmol/L when taking the average of the 3 most recent Phe levels from the participant's medical history (inclusive of the screening value).

- Clinical diagnosis of phenylketonuria with hyperphenylalaninemia (HPA) documented by past medical history of at least 2 blood Phe measurements ≥600 μmol/L.

- Women of childbearing potential must have a negative pregnancy test at screening and agree to abstinence or the use of at least one highly effective form of contraception for the duration of the study, and for up to 30 days after the last dose of study drug.

- Males who are sexually active with women of childbearing potential who have not had a vasectomy must agree to use a barrier method of birth control during the study and for up to 90 days after the last dose of study drug. Males must also refrain from sperm donations during this time period.

- Willing to continue current diet unchanged while participating in the study.

Exclusion Criteria:

- Gastrointestinal disease (such as irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease, chronic gastritis, and peptic ulcer disease, etc.) that could affect the absorption of study drug.

- History of gastric surgery, including Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery or an antrectomy with vagotomy, or gastrectomy.

- History of allergies or adverse reactions to synthetic tetrahydrobiopterin (BH4) or sepiapterin.

- Current participation in any other investigational drug study or use of any investigational agent within 30 days prior to screening.

- Any clinically significant laboratory abnormality as determined by the investigator.

- A female who is pregnant or breastfeeding, or considering pregnancy.

- Serious neuropsychiatric illness (for example, major depression) not currently under medical control, that in the opinion of the investigator or sponsor, would interfere with the participant's ability to participate in the study or increase the risk of participation for that participant.

- Past medical history and/or evidence of renal impairment and/or condition including moderate/severe renal insufficiency (glomerular filtration rate [GFR] <60 milliliters [mL]/minute [min]) and/or under care of a nephrologist.

- Any abnormal physical examination and/or laboratory findings indicative of signs or symptoms of renal disease, including calculated GFR <60 mL/min/1.73 square meter (m^2).

- Requirement for concomitant treatment with any drug known to inhibit folate synthesis (for example, methotrexate).

- Clinical diagnosis of a primary BH4 deficiency.

- Major surgery within the prior 90 days of screening.

- Concomitant treatment with BH4 supplementation (for example, sapropterin dihydrochloride, KUVAN) or pegvaliase-pqpz (PALYNZIQ).

- Unwillingness to washout from BH4 supplementation (for example, sapropterin dihydrochloride, KUVAN) or pegvaliase-pqpz (PALYNZIQ)
