SLE Responder Index (SRI) Response Rate at Week 52 [ Time Frame: Baseline, 52 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Percentage of subjects with a ≥ 4 point reduction from baseline in SELENA SLEDAI score, and no worsening (increase of < 0.30 points from baseline) in PGA, and no new BILAG A organ domain score or 2 new BILAG B organ domain scores compared with baseline.

SELENA SLEDAI is calculated from 24 individual descriptors; 0 indicates inactive disease and the maximum theoretical score is 105; scores > 20 are rare. PGA is a visual analog scale scored from 0 to 3 (1=mild, 2=moderate, 3=severe). BILAG uses a single score for each of the 8 organ domains; range is from severe to no disease (A to E).

The primary efficacy endpoint is response rate at Week 52

  • Percent of Subjects With a ≥ 4 Point Reduction From Baseline in SELENA SLEDAI Score at Wk 52. [ Time Frame: Baseline, 52 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Mean Change in Physician's Global Assessment (PGA) at Wk 24. [ Time Frame: Baseline, 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The PGA is a visual analog scale scored from 0 to 3. A score of 1 corresponds to mild lupus disease activity. A score of 2 correlates with moderate disease activity and a score of 3 with severe disease activity.
  • Mean Change From Baseline in Medical Outcomes 36-Item Short Form Health Survey (SF-36) Physical Component Summary Score (PCS) at Wk 24. [ Time Frame: Baseline, 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The SF-36 is a generic health related quality of life (HRQOL) measurement. The survey includes 36 questions grouped to 8 domains and 2 summary measures (physical and mental health component, PCS and MCS, respectively) assessing HRQOL. Responses are scored according to the SF-36v2™ manual. A score is calculated for each SF-36 domain based on the patient's response to each question within it. This is then transformed to a scale ranging from 0 (worst) to 100 (best) points. The PCS is norm-based where the mean=50 and standard deviation (SD)=10. Higher scores represent better physical health.
  • Percent of Subjects Whose Average Prednisone Dose Has Been Reduced by ≥ 25% From Baseline to ≤ 7.5 mg/Day During Weeks 40 Through 52 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Weeks 40 through 52 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
The major secondary outscome measures include; SELENA SLEDAI; Physicians Global Assessment; quality of life; prednisone usage
Adverse Events (AE) Overview [ Time Frame: Up to 56 Weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

A Study of Belimumab in Subjects With Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE)
A Phase 3, Multi-Center, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, 52-Wk Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of Belimumab (HGS1006, LymphoStat-B™), a Fully Human Monoclonal Anti-BLyS Antibody, in Subjects With Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE)

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy, safety, tolerability, and impact on quality of life of two different doses of belimumab administered in addition to standard therapy in subjects with active, autoantibody-positive systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) disease.
