Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of ustekinumab in participants with active systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) who have not adequately responded to one or more standard of care treatments.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Lupus Erythematosus, Systemic Drug: Placebo Drug: Ustekinumab (approximately 6 mg/kg) Drug: Ustekinumab 90 mg Phase 3

Detailed Description:
This study evaluates the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of ustekinumab in participants with active SLE according to Systemic Lupus International Collaborating Clinics (SLICC) criteria Systemic Lupus Erythematosus Disease Activity Index 2000 (SLEDAI-2K) score greater than (>=) 6, despite receiving one or more standard-of-care treatments (example, immunomodulators, antimalarial drugs, and/or glucocorticoids). The total duration of the study is up to 182 weeks, consisting of 3 study periods: a screening period (approximately 6 weeks), a double blind period (52 weeks), and an extension period (124 weeks). Other study evaluations will include pharmacokinetics, immunogenicity, biomarkers and pharmacogenomic evaluations. The safety of the participants enrolled in the study will be monitored on an ongoing basis throughout the study.

Drug Information available for: Ustekinumab

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Ustekinumab
Participants will receive ustekinumab approximately 6 milligram per kilogram (mg/kg) intravenously (IV) based on body weight-range at Week 0 followed by 90 mg ustekinumab subcutaneously (SC) at Week 8 and every 8 weeks (q8w) thereafter through Week 48 during double-blind period. Eligible participants who will enter the extension period will continue to receive 90 mg ustekinumab SC q8w through Week 160.

Participants will receive 90 mg ustekinumab via SC route.
Other Name: Stelara

Experimental: Placebo

Eligible participants who will enter the extension period will cross-over to receive 90 mg ustekinumab SC q8w through Week 160.
Drug: Placebo
Participants will receive placebo matching to ustekinumab IV or SC.

Drug: Ustekinumab 90 mg
Participants will receive 90 mg ustekinumab via SC route.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percentage of Participants Achieving an Systemic Lupus Erythematosus Responder Index-4 (SRI-4) Composite Response at Week 52 [ Time Frame: Week 52 ]
    SRI-4 is a composite of at least 4 point improvement in Systemic Lupus Erythematosus Disease Activity Index 2000(SLEDAI-2K), no worsening in British Isles Lupus Assessment Group (BILAG) and no worsening in Physician's Global Assessment of Disease Activity score (PGA).


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Time to Flare [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 52 ]
    Time to flare will be calculated with flare defined as either 1 or more new BILAG A or 2 or more new BILAG B domain scores relative to baseline.

  2. Percentage of Participants with an SRI-4 Composite Response at Week 24 [ Time Frame: Week 24 ]
    SRI-4 is a composite of at least 4 point improvement in SLEDAI-2K, no worsening in BILAG and no worsening in PGA.

  3. Percentage of Participants Achieving at Least a 50% Improvement in the Number of Joints with Pain and Signs of Inflammation at Week 52 [ Time Frame: Week 52 ]
    The percentage of participants achieving at least a 50 percent (%) improvement in the number of joints with pain and signs of inflammation at week 52 will be reported in participants with at least 4 affected joints at baseline.

  4. Percentage of Participants Receiving Glucocorticoids at Baseline who Achieve Reduction in Glucocorticoid Dose by Week 40 and Sustain That Reduction Through Week 52 [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 52 ]
    Reduction of glucocorticoid dose is defined as a reduction in average daily oral glucocorticoid dose by at least 50% (relative to the baseline dose) or reduction of average daily oral glucocorticoid dose by at least 25% (relative to the baseline dose) so that the average daily dose is reduced to less than or equal to (<=) 7.5 milligram (mg) (prednisone or equivalent). Sustained reduction of glucocorticoid dose is defined as achieving an average daily oral glucocorticoid dose reduction (as described above) between Weeks 24 and 40, and sustaining that reduction through Week 52, in those participants who, at baseline, were receiving oral glucocorticoids.

  5. Percentage of Participants Achieving at Least a 50% Improvement in the Cutaneous Lupus Erythematosus Disease Area and Severity Index (CLASI) Activity Score at Week 52 [ Time Frame: Week 52 ]
    Percentage of participants achieving at least 50% improvement in CLASI Activity Score at Week 52 will be reported in participants with a CLASI Activity Score of 4 or greater at baseline.

  6. Percentage of Participants Receiving Glucocorticoids at Baseline who Achieve Reduction in Glucocorticoid Dose by Week 40, Sustain That Reduction Through Week 52, and Achieve an SRI-4 Composite Response at Week 52 [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 52 ]
    Percentage of participants receiving glucocorticoids at baseline who achieve reduction in glucocorticoidits dose (as described above) by Week 40, sustain that reduction through Week 52 (as described above), and achieve an SRI-4 composite response (as described above) at Week 52 will be reported.
