Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To evaluate the long term safety and tolerability of repeated administration of subcutaneous (sc) CEP-33457 in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) [ Time Frame: each 4 week interval up to a total duration of 72 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

    Overall Safety will be assessed by evaluating the following:

    • occurrence of adverse events
    • clinical laboratory tests
    • vital signs measurements
    • physical examination findings
    • concomitant medication usage


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Proportion of patients achieving a clinical response using the SLE responder index (SRI) at each visit during the treatment period [ Time Frame: at each 4 week interval up to Week 72 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    An SRI response is defined as a reduction from baseline in the Systemic Lupus Erythematosus Disease Activity Index 2000 (SLEDAI 2K) score of at least 4 points, no worsening in Physician's Global Assessment (PhGA) (with worsening defined as an increase in PhGA of more than 0.30 point from baseline), no British Isles Lupus Assessment Group A (BILAG A) organ domain score, and no more than 1 new BILAG B organ domain score from baseline.

  • Assessment of disease activity according to the change in the SLEDAI-2K score at each visit during the treatment period [ Time Frame: at each 4 week interval up to Week 72 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    SLEDAI-2K = Systemic Lupus Erythematosus Disease Activity Index 2000. It is a global index and includes 24 weighted clinical and laboratory variables.

  • Measure of disease activity based upon the physician intention to treat according to the change in the BILAG-2004 score at each visit during the treatment period [ Time Frame: at each 4 week interval up to Week 72 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    BILAG-2004 = British Isles Lupus Assessment Group 2004. BILAG-2004 includes 97 clinical and laboratory items to evaluate SLE disease activity in 9 organ systems.

  • The effect of CEP-33457 on the status of disease (PhGA scale) at each visit during the treatment period [ Time Frame: at each 4 week interval up to Week 72 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • The effect of CEP-33457 on the status of disease (Patient's Global Assessment [PtGA] scale) [ Time Frame: at weeks 12, 24, 36, 48 and 60 and the final assessment (or early termination) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • The effect of CEP-33457 on health related quality of life, as assessed by completion of the Medical Outcome Survey Short Form 36 (SF 36) [ Time Frame: at weeks 12, 24, 36, 48 and 60 and the final assessment (or early termination) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • The effect of CEP-33457 on biologic markers of disease activity during the study [ Time Frame: At weeks 12, 24, 36, 48, 60, and the final assessment (or early termination) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Biological markers-

    • anti-U1 ribonucleoprotein antibody (anti U1RNP Ab)
    • anti-Smith antibody (anti Sm Ab)
    • C-reactive protein (CRP)
    • immunoglobulin G (IgG), immunoglobulin M (IgM), and immunoglobulin E (IgE)
    • antinuclear antibody (ANA)

  • The effect of CEP-33457 on the incidence of disease flares, eg, Safety of Estrogens in Lupus Erythematosus: National Assessment (SELENA) Flare Index [ Time Frame: at each 4 week interval up to Week 72 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • The effect of CEP-33457 on the occurrence of systemic lupus erythematosus-induced (SLE-induced) organ damage [ Time Frame: at weeks 24, 48, and the final assessment (or early termination) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    e.g., Systemic Lupus International Collaborative Clinics/American College of Rheumatology (SLICC/ACR) Damage Index

  • Remission of disease [ Time Frame: during the overall 72 week study period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    (i.e., reduction of SLEDAI-2K score to 0)

  • Proportion of patients with changes in steroid dose over time throughout the study [ Time Frame: during the overall 72 week study period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Presence of anti-CEP-33457 antibodies [ Time Frame: at weeks 24, 48, and final assessment (or early termination) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    This is an assessment of the immunogenicity of CEP-33457

  • The patient previously participated in and completed at least visit 8 (week 24) the Cephalon sponsored clinical study with CEP 33457 (study C33457/2047) and, in the investigator's opinion, would benefit from continued participation in a clinical study.

  • The patient has a known positive history of antibodies to human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) or HIV disease.
