  Purpose
The primary purpose of the study is to evaluate the efficacy of BIIB059 in reducing disease activity in participants with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) with active cutaneous manifestations and joint involvement (Part A), and in participants with active cutaneous lupus erythematosus (CLE) (Subacute cutaneous lupus erythematosus (SCLE) or chronic CLE, including discoid lupus erythematosus (DLE)) with or without systemic manifestations (Part B). The secondary objective is to evaluate additional efficacy parameters of BIIB059 in reducing SLE/CLE disease activity, pharmacokinetic parameters, safety and tolerability of BIIB059 (Parts A and B).

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Part A: Change from Baseline in Active Joint Count (28-joint Assessment) to Week 24 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 24 ]
    An active joint is defined as a joint with pain and signs of inflammation (e.g., tenderness, swelling or effusion). A 28-joint assessment will be performed to determine the active joint count, which is defined as the sum of tender and swollen joint counts.

  • Part B: Percent Change from Baseline in Cutaneous Lupus Erythematosus Disease Area and Severity Index Activity (CLASI-A) Score to Week 16 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 16 ]
    The Cutaneous Lupus Erythematosus Disease Area and Severity Index (CLASI) is a clinical tool that quantifies disease activity and damage in cutaneous lupus erythematosus (CLE). The activity scale (CLASI-A) includes measurements of erythema, scale and hypertrophy, and mucous membrane disease. Each part of the body is listed separately, from the scalp to the feet, in addition to sections focusing on mucous membrane involvement and alopecia. Points are given for the presence of erythema, scale, mucous membrane lesions, recent hair loss, and inflammatory alopecia. Composite scores are calculated by summing the individual component scores. CLASI-A scores of 0-9, 10-20, and 21-70 represent disease severity of mild, moderate, and severe, respectively.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Participants with CLASI-50 Response at Weeks 12, 16, and 24 [ Time Frame: Baseline up to Week 24 ]

    CLASI-50 Response is defined as a 50% improvement from baseline in CLASI-A score at Week 24 (Part A) and Weeks 12 and 16 (Part B).

    The Cutaneous Lupus Erythematosus Disease Area and Severity Index (CLASI) is a clinical tool that quantifies disease activity and damage in cutaneous lupus erythematosus (CLE). The activity scale (CLASI-A) includes measurements of erythema, scale and hypertrophy, and mucous membrane disease. Each part of the body is listed separately, from the scalp to the feet, in addition to sections focusing on mucous membrane involvement and alopecia. Points are given for the presence of erythema, scale, mucous membrane lesions, recent hair loss, and inflammatory alopecia. Composite scores are calculated by summing the individual component scores. CLASI-A scores of 0-9, 10-20, and 21-70 represent disease severity of mild, moderate, and severe, respectively.


  • Percent Change from Baseline in CLASI-A Score to Weeks 12, 16, and 24 (Part A) and Week 12 (Part B) [ Time Frame: Baseline up to Week 24 ]
    The Cutaneous Lupus Erythematosus Disease Area and Severity Index (CLASI) is a clinical tool that quantifies disease activity and damage in cutaneous lupus erythematosus (CLE). The activity scale (CLASI-A) includes measurements of erythema, scale and hypertrophy, and mucous membrane disease. Each part of the body is listed separately, from the scalp to the feet, in addition to sections focusing on mucous membrane involvement and alopecia. Points are given for the presence of erythema, scale, mucous membrane lesions, recent hair loss, and inflammatory alopecia. Composite scores are calculated by summing the individual component scores. CLASI-A scores of 0-9, 10-20, and 21-70 represent disease severity of mild, moderate, and severe, respectively.

  • Percentage of Participants with a ≥ 4-point reduction in CLASI-A score Relative to Baseline at Weeks 12 and 16 (Part B), and Week 24 (Part A) [ Time Frame: Baseline up to Week 24 ]
    The Cutaneous Lupus Erythematosus Disease Area and Severity Index (CLASI) is a clinical tool that quantifies disease activity and damage in cutaneous lupus erythematosus (CLE). The activity scale (CLASI-A) includes measurements of erythema, scale and hypertrophy, and mucous membrane disease. Each part of the body is listed separately, from the scalp to the feet, in addition to sections focusing on mucous membrane involvement and alopecia. Points are given for the presence of erythema, scale, mucous membrane lesions, recent hair loss, and inflammatory alopecia. Composite scores are calculated by summing the individual component scores. CLASI-A scores of 0-9, 10-20, and 21-70 represent disease severity of mild, moderate, and severe, respectively.

  • Percentage of Participants with a Composite Response [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 24 ]

    Composite response is defined as:

    Participants with a Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) Responder Index (SRI) of ≥4 (SRI-4) at Week 24. SRI-4 is defined as a reduction from baseline of ≥4 points in SLE Disease Activity Index 2000 (SLEDAI-2K). Participants will also have no new organ system affected, as defined by no new British Isles Lupus Activity Group (BILAG)-2004 A and no more than one new BILAG-2004 B. No worsening from baseline in the participant's lupus disease activity is to be present, defined by <0.3 point increase in Physician's Global Assessment (PGA) visual analogue scale (VAS). Lastly, the participants will have no protocol-prohibited medication or treatment, concomitant corticosteroid dosage at Week 24 is <=10 mg/day, concomitant corticosteroid dosage at Week 24 is <=Day 1 corticosteroid dosage, and there is to be no increase in corticosteroid dose between Weeks 17 and 24.


  • Change from Baseline in Systemic Lupus Erythematosus Disease Activity Index 2000 (SLEDAI-2K) Score to Week 24 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 24 ]
    The SLEDAI-2K is a reliable, valid, simple, 1-page activity index that measures disease activity and records features of active lupus as present or not. It uses a weighted checklist to assign a numeric score based on the presence or absence of 24 symptoms at the time of assessment or during the previous 28 days. Each symptom present is assigned between 1 and up to 8 points based on its usual clinical importance, yielding a total score that ranges from 0 points (no symptoms) to 105 points (presence of all defined symptoms).

  • Percentage of Participants with no New Organ System Affected [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 24 ]
    No new organ system affected, as defined by no new British Isles Lupus Activity Group (BILAG)-2004 A and no more than one new BILAG-2004 B.

  • Number of participants experiencing Adverse Events (AEs) and Serious Adverse Events (SAEs) [ Time Frame: Baseline up to 36 weeks ]
    An AE is any untoward medical occurrence in a patient or clinical investigation subject administered a pharmaceutical product and that does not necessarily have a causal relationship with this treatment. An SAE is any untoward medical occurrence that at any dose: Results in death; in the view of the Investigator, places the subject at immediate risk of death (a life-threatening event); however, this does not include an event that, had it occurred in a more severe form, might have caused death; requires inpatient hospitalization or prolongation of existing hospitalization; results in persistent or significant disability/incapacity; results in a congenital anomaly/birth defect.

  • BIIB059 clearance [ Time Frame: Up to 36 weeks ]
  • BIIB059 volume of distribution [ Time Frame: Up to 36 weeks ]
  • BIIB059 absorption rate [ Time Frame: Up to 36 weeks ]
  • Number of participants with clinically significant laboratory assessment abnormalities [ Time Frame: Up to 36 weeks ]
  • Number of participants with clinically significant Vital sign abnormalities [ Time Frame: Up to 36 weeks ]
  • Number of participants with clinically significant 12-lead electrocardiograms (ECGs) abnormalities [ Time Frame: Up to 36 weeks ]
  • Number of participants with positive serum BIIB059 antibodies [ Time Frame: Up to 36 weeks ]
  • Absolute change from baseline over time in immunoglobulin levels [ Time Frame: Up to 36 weeks ]
