|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Healthy Participants Study||Drug: Anifrolumab Device: Autoinjector Device: Accessorized Pre-Filled Syringe||Phase 1|
This will be a multicenter, randomized, open-label, parallel group Phase 1 study.
After meeting the eligibility criteria, all eligible participants will be randomized 1:1:1:1:1:1 to a device group (APFS or AI) for an anatomical injection site as defined in the protocol. Randomization will be stratified by protocol defined body weight categories and clinical unit.
The study will comprise:
- A Screening Period up to 28 days.
- One treatment period during which eligible participants will be admitted to the Clinical Unit on Day -1 to reassess their eligibility. Participants who meet eligibility criteria will be randomized to receive a single subcutaneous (SC) dose of anifrolumab by either APFS or AI device on Day 1. Participants will be discharged on Day 3.
- The participants will return to the center for Follow-up Visits on Days 6, 8, 12, 15, 22, 29, and 43.
- A final Follow-up Visit on Day 57.

- Number of participants with positive Anti-drug antibodies (ADA) [ Time Frame: Day 1, 29 and 57 ]Evaluation of the immunogenicity of anifrolumab delivered by AI or APFS will be done.
- Number of participants with adverse events and serious adverse events [ Time Frame: Screening period (Day -28 to Day-2) through follow-up visit (Day 57) and evaluation of injection site reaction (Days 1 to 3) ]Evaluation of safety and tolerability of AI- vs APFS-administered anifrolumab will be done.
