Detailed Description:
The study will be conducted in 3 parts. Parts 1 and 2 of the study will include a double-blind treatment period of 24 weeks and a safety follow-up period of 48 weeks for participants who do not continue onto Part 3. Patients meeting the eligibility criteria for enrollment in Part 3, will enter Part 3 after completion of the Week 24 visit but prior to completion of the Week 72 visit. In Part 1, participants will be randomized in a 2:1 ratio (active drug:placebo) to receive either rontalizumab 750 mg or matching placebo intravenously every 4 weeks for 24 weeks. Part 2 was will be initiated upon the completion of recruitment for Part 1. In Part 2, participants will be randomized in a 2:1 ratio (active drug:placebo) to receive either rontalizumab 300 mg or matching placebo subcutaneously every 2 weeks for 24 weeks. After Week 24, patients will enter a 48-week safety follow-up period, or, after the open label extension became available via protocol amendment, will have the option of entering Part 3 of the study, if eligible. In Part 3, all participants will receive rontalizumab 750 mg intravenously every 4 weeks for 120 weeks (up to 144 weeks total).

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Diagnosis of SLE.
  • Active disease at the time of screening.
  • Agreement to use an effective form of contraception for the duration of the study.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Acutely life- or organ-threatening manifestations of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) (eg, proliferative nephritis, unstable neuropsychiatric disease).
  • Pregnancy or breastfeeding.
  • History of severe allergic or anaphylactic reactions to monoclonal antibodies or intravenous (IV) immunoglobulin.
  • Significant, uncontrolled medical disease in any organ system not related to SLE that in the investigator's opinion would preclude patient participation.

  • History of cancer within 5 years of screening.
  • Any current or recent (within 4 weeks of screening) signs or symptoms of infection, except for minor infections, fungal infections of the nail beds, or oral or vaginal candidiasis.
