Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Have a clinical diagnosis of SLE at least 24 weeks prior to screening.
  • Have documentation of having met at least 4 of 11 Revised Criteria for Classification of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus according to the 1997 Update of the 1982 American College of Rheumatology (ACR) criteria for classification of SLE prior to randomization.
  • Have a positive antinuclear antibody (ANA) (titer ≥1:80) and/or a positive anti-double-stranded deoxyribonucleic acid (dsDNA), and/or a positive anti-Smith (anti-Sm) as assessed by a central laboratory during screening.
  • Have a total Systemic Lupus Erythematosus Disease Activity Index 2000 (SLEDAI-2K) score ≥6 during screening.
  • Have a clinical SLEDAI-2K score ≥4 at randomization.
  • Have at least 1 British Isles Lupus Assessment Group (BILAG) A score or 2 BILAG B scores during screening.
  • Are receiving at least one of the following standard of care medications for SLE:

    • A single antimalarial at a stable dose for at least 8 weeks prior to screening
    • A single immunosuppressant at a stable dose for at least 8 weeks prior to screening
    • An oral corticosteroid, initiated at least 4 weeks prior to screening, at a stable dose ≤40 milligrams/day prednisone (or equivalent) for at least 2 weeks prior to screening. If the participant is not receiving an antimalarial or immunosuppressant, the dose of corticosteroid must be ≥7.5 milligrams/day prednisone (or equivalent)

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Have severe active lupus nephritis.
  • Have active central nervous system (CNS) lupus.
  • Have a history or presence of cardiovascular, respiratory, hepatic, gastrointestinal, endocrine, hematological, neurological, or neuropsychiatric disorders or any other serious and/or unstable illness that, in the opinion of the investigator, could constitute an unacceptable risk when taking investigational product or interfere with the interpretation of data.
  • Have a current or recent clinically serious viral, bacterial, fungal, or parasitic infection.
  • Have received cyclophosphamide (or any other cytotoxic agent) within 12 weeks prior to screening.
