Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: VIB7734 SC (dosing interval 1) Drug: VIB7734

Experimental: VIB7734 SC (dosing interval 2) Drug: VIB7734

Placebo Comparator: Placebo SC (dosing interval 3) Other: Placebo

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Proportion of Participants who achieve BICLA and OGC (oral glucocorticoid) reduction response at Week 48 [ Time Frame: Week 48 ]
    Participants will have BICLA (BILAG 2004 Index-Based Combined Lupus Assessment) and oral glucocorticoid assessment at week 48.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Proportion of Participants with CLASI-A score ≥ 10 at Baseline (Day 1) who achieve ≥ 50% reduction from Baseline (Day 1) in CLASI-A score at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Week 12 ]
    Cutaneous Lupus Erythematosus Disease Area and Severity Index will be measured at week 12. The scoring consists of 2 parts: inflammatory activity of the disease and damage done by the disease.

  2. Proportion of Participants achieving an SRI-4 response and an OGC dose ≤ 7.5 mg/day and ≤ Baseline (Day 1) dose of prednisone or equivalent at Week 48 [ Time Frame: Week 48 ]
    The SRI-4 (SLE Responder Index) is defined as meeting all criteria compared to baseline, (e.g. no worsening of symptoms).

  3. Proportion of Participants at OGC dose ≥ 10 mg prednisone or equivalent at Baseline (Day 1) who achieve an OCG of ≤ 7.5 mg/day prednisone or equivalent at Week 36 through Week 48 [ Time Frame: Week 36 to Week 48 ]
  4. Proportion of Participants achieving LLDAS (Lupus Low Disease Activity State) at Week 48 [ Time Frame: Week 48 ]
    LLDAS is a composite measure of SLE disease activity that measures 5 criteria: SLEDAI-2K ≤ 4, with no activity in major organ systems, no new lupus disease activity, PGA ≤ 1 (scale 0 to 3), current prednisone (or equivalent) dose ≤ 7.5 mg daily, tolerated maintenance doses of immunosuppressive drugs and approved biological agents.

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Number of Participants who experience AEs, SAEs, AESIs [ Time Frame: Baseline through Week 56 ]
    Safety evaluation will occur throughout the study.

    1. SLEDAI-2K total score ≥ 6 at Screening, excluding fever, SLE headache, or organic brain syndrome.
    2. SLEDAI-2K total score ≥ 4, excluding points attributable to any urine or laboratory results, immunologic measures, fever, SLE headache, or organic brain syndrome at Screening and Baseline (Day 1).
    3. At least one of the following BILAG 2004 Index levels of disease at Screening:
  • BILAG A disease in ≥ 1 organ system
  • BILAG B disease in ≥ 2 organ systems d. PGA score ≥ 1 on a 0 to 3 visual analog scale (VAS) at Screening

    1. Treatment with one or more disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drug (DMARD) or immunosuppressive medication: Any of the following medications each administered at conventional anti-rheumatic doses for treatment of SLE for at least 12 weeks before Screening (unless discontinued or dose adjusted for documented drug-related toxicity or size/weight), and at a stable dose (including route of administration) for a minimum of 8 weeks prior to Screening and maintained through Baseline (Day 1):
    2. Treatment with OGC monotherapy (without the concomitant use of DMARDs or immunosuppressants):

The dose of OGC must be kept for a minimum of 2 weeks prior to Randomization. Daily dosing or alternate day dosing of PO prednisone or equivalent is allowed.
  • Women of childbearing potential must have a negative serum pregnancy test at screening and a negative urine pregnancy test at Randomization.
  • Non-sterilized male participants who are sexually active with a woman partner of childbearing potential must agree to use a condom with spermicide from Randomization and until 3 months (approximately 5 half-lives) after receipt of the last dose.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Any condition that, in the opinion of the Investigator, or the Sponsor/Central Review Committee, would interfere with the evaluation of the IP or interpretation of participant safety or study results (including borderline disease activity)
