NCT01705977

  Purpose
The purpose of this study is to further enhance the existing knowledge regarding the side effects of belimumab when given with other lupus medicines to adults with active systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). This study mainly focuses on collecting information on serious events that are not that common or may only be seen with long-term treatment. These events include death, serious infections and other infections of interest, cancers, serious mental health problems, including depression and suicide, and serious infusion and hypersensitivity reactions. This study is being done to help understand if treatment with belimumab increases the risk for these types of events. This study will also see if patients receiving belimumab with other lupus medicines can reduce their use of steroids, such as prednisone, over 1 year.

Condition Intervention Phase
Systemic Lupus Erythematosus Biological: Placebo plus standard therapy Biological: Belimumab 10 mg/kg plus standard therapy Other: Standard therapy Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Quadruple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled 52-Week Study to Assess Adverse Events of Special Interest in Adults With Active, Autoantibody-Positive Systemic Lupus Erythematosus Receiving Belimumab

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Incidence of all-cause mortality [ Time Frame: Up to 52 weeks ]
  • Incidence of adverse events of special interest [ Time Frame: Up to 52 weeks ]
    Summary of the number and percentage of participants with adverse events within 8 prespecified categories: serious infections, non-serious opportunistic infections and other infections of interest, malignancies (excluding non-melanoma skin cancers), non-melanoma skin cancers, psychiatric events, suicidality, serious infusion and hypersensitivity reactions, and all serious adverse events.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Reduction in prednisone dose [ Time Frame: Baseline, Weeks 40 to 52 ]
    Percent of participants whose average prednisone dose has been reduced by ≥ 25% from baseline to ≤ 7.5 mg/day during Weeks 40 through 52 in participants receiving greater than 7.5 mg/day at baseline.


Estimated Enrollment: 5000
Study Start Date: July 2012

Estimated Primary Completion Date: January 2019 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Placebo Comparator: Placebo plus standard therapy

Biological: Placebo plus standard therapy
Placebo plus standard therapy
Other: Standard therapy
Standard therapy comprises any of the following (alone or in combination): corticosteroids, antimalarials, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), and immunosuppressives; other biologics are not permitted.
Experimental: Belimumab 10 mg/kg plus standard therapy
Belimumab 10 mg/kg IV plus standard therapy; belimumab administered on Days 0, 14, 28, and then every 28 days thereafter through Week 48, with a final evaluation at Week 52 in the double-blind period.
Biological: Belimumab 10 mg/kg plus standard therapy
Belimumab 10 mg/kg plus standard therapy
Other Name: BENLYSTA™
Other: Standard therapy
Standard therapy comprises any of the following (alone or in combination): corticosteroids, antimalarials, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), and immunosuppressives; other biologics are not permitted.

Detailed Description:

Study participants receive standard therapy for SLE in addition to receiving the study drug, either placebo (no active medicine) or belimumab. The controlled period of the study is 52 weeks. The random assignment in this study is "1 to 1" which means that participants have an equal chance of receiving belimumab or placebo. After completion of the 52-week study period, participants will be contacted by phone annually for 4 more years to assess health status.

Following the 52-week controlled period, participants who wish to continue treatment with belimumab may be able to do so by being prescribed commercially available belimumab. If belimumab is not commercially available in the participant's country, the participant may be able to receive belimumab under a separate continuation protocol.
