    A composite endpoint, with SRI-4 response requiring a ≥ 4-point improvement (reduction) from baseline in Hybrid Safety of Estrogens in Lupus Erythematosus National Assessment - Systemic Lupus Erythematosus Disease Activity Index (hSELENA-SLEDAI), no new British Isles Lupus Assessment Group (BILAG-2004) A organ domain scores, or ≥ 2 new BILAG-2004 B organ domain scores compared with baseline, no worsening from baseline in lupus disease activity, and no permanent discontinuation of study drug or use of new or increased medication for SLE other than defined per protocol.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percentage of participants who achieved an SRI-4 response in prespecified biomarker (BM) subgroups at Week 24 [ Time Frame: At Week 24 ]
  2. Percentage of participants who achieved a BILAG-based Composite Lupus Assessment (BICLA) response in prespecified BM subgroups at Week 24 [ Time Frame: At Week 24 ]
  3. Percentage of participants who achieved a BICLA response at Week 24 [ Time Frame: At Week 24 ]
  4. Percentage of participants whose prednisone dose was ≤ 7.5 mg at Week 16 and maintained through Week 24 in the subgroup with baseline prednisone ≥10 mg/day [ Time Frame: Until Week 24 ]
  5. Total cumulative corticosteroid dose over 24 weeks [ Time Frame: Until Week 24 ]
  6. Percentage of participants achieving an SRI-4 response at week 24 with sustained reduction of oral corticosteroids [ Time Frame: At Week 24 ]
  7. Percent change from baseline in percentage in Cutaneous Lupus Erythematosus Disease Area and Severity Index (CLASI)-A at Week 24 in the subgroup of participants with baseline CLASI-A score ≥8 [ Time Frame: At Week 24 ]
  8. Percentage of participants with ≥50% improvement in CLASI-A at Week 24 in the subgroup of participants with baseline CLASI-A score ≥8 [ Time Frame: At Week 24 ]
  9. Percentage of participants with ≥50% improvement in the number of tender and swollen joints at Week 24 (among participants with at least 4 joints affected at baseline) [ Time Frame: At Week 24 ]
  10. Incidence of treatment-emergent AEs (TEAEs), serious AEs (SAEs), and AEs of special interest (AESIs) from Baseline to Week 36 End of Study (EoS) [ Time Frame: Until Week 36 ]
  11. Incidence of study investigational medicinal product permanent discontinuations and study withdrawals due to TEAEs from Baseline to Week 36 (EoS) [ Time Frame: Until Week 36 ]
  12. Participants with medically significant changes in vital signs, electrocardiogram (ECG), and/or laboratory evaluation [ Time Frame: Until Week 36 ]
  13. Measurement of anti-drug antibodies (ADA) (before administration at Week 0, 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24 and after treatment discontinuation at Week 36) [ Time Frame: Until Week 36 ]
  14. SAR441344 concentrations over time [ Time Frame: Until Week 36 ]
  15. Pharmacokinetic parameters: maximum concentration (Cmax) [ Time Frame: Until Week 36 ]
  16. Pharmacokinetic parameters: time to Cmax (tmax) [ Time Frame: Until Week 36 ]
  17. Pharmacokinetic parameters: area under the curve over the dosing interval (AUC0-tau) [ Time Frame: Until Week 36 ]
  18. Pharmacokinetic parameters: terminal half-life (t1/2z). [ Time Frame: Until Week 36 ]
