 (submitted: July 5, 2016)
  • Percentage of Participants Achieving an Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) Responder Index [SRI (4)] Response With Oral Corticosteroids (OCS) Tapering at Day 169 [ Time Frame: Day 169 ]
    An SRI (4) responder defined as a participant who had 1) a reduction in baseline Systemic Lupus Erythematosus Disease Activity Index 2000 (SLEDAI-2K) score of greater than or equal to (>=) 4 points; 2) no worsening of disease from baseline as measured by the Physician Global Assessment (MDGA) (worsening was defined as an increase of >= 0.3 from baseline on a 0 to 3.0 visual analog scale); and 3) no new British Isles Lupus Assessment Group 2004 (BILAG-2004) Index 'A' organ system score and no more than one new or worsening BILAG-2004 Index 'B' organ system score. OCS tapering requires a sustained reduction of OCS from Day 85 through Day 169 [less than 10 milligram per day (mg/day) and less or equal to the dose received on Day 1]. SRI was analyzed by a logistic regression model.
  • Percentage of Type I Interferon (IFN) Test High Participants Achieving an Systemic Lupus Erythematosus Responder Index (SRI) (4) Response With Oral Corticosteroids (OCS) Tapering at Day 169 [ Time Frame: Day 169 ]
    Type I IFN signature in whole blood assessed by using a 4-gene diagnostic test. The blood samples collected were to be used to prospectively identify participants as IFN test-high or test-low. The results of this test were used to stratify participants. An SRI (4) Responder was defined as a participant who had 1) a reduction in baseline SLEDAI-2K disease activity score of >= 4 points; 2) no worsening of disease from baseline as measured by the Physician Global Assessment (MDGA) (worsening was defined as an increase of >= 0.3 from baseline on a 0 to 3.0 visual analog scale); and 3) no new British Isles Lupus Assessment Group 2004 (BILAG-2004) Index A organ system score and no more than one new or worsening BILAG-2004 Index B organ system score. OCS tapering requires a sustained reduction of OCS from Day 85 through Day 169 [less than 10 mg/day and less or equal to the dose received on Day 1]. SRI was analyzed by a logistic regression model.

  • Percentage of Participants Achieving an Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) Responder Index [SRI (4)] Response With Oral Corticosteroids (OCS) Tapering at Day 365 [ Time Frame: Day 365 ]
    An SRI (4) Responder was defined as a participant who had 1) a reduction in baseline SLEDAI-2K disease activity score of >= 4 points; 2) no worsening of disease from baseline as measured by the MDGA (worsening was defined as an increase of >= 0.3 from baseline on a 0 to 3.0 visual analog scale); and 3) no new British Isles Lupus Assessment Group 2004 (BILAG-2004) Index A organ system score and no more than one new or worsening BILAG-2004 Index B organ system score. OCS tapering requires a sustained reduction of OCS from Day 281 through Day 365 (less than 10 mg/day and less or equal to the dose received on Day 1). SRI was analyzed by a logistic regression model.
  • Percentage of Participants on Oral Corticosteroids (OCS) >=10 mg/Day of Prednisone or Equivalent at Baseline Who Were Able to Taper to Less Than or Equal to (<=) 7.5 mg/Day at Day 365 [ Time Frame: Day 365 ]
    Participants on OCS >=10 mg/day of prednisone or equivalent at baseline who were able to taper to <= 7.5 mg/day at Day 365 were evaluated.
  • Number of Participants With Treatment-Emergent Adverse Events (TEAEs), Adverse Events of Special Interest (AESIs) and Treatment-Emergent Serious Adverse Events (TESAEs) [ Time Frame: Day 1 (Baseline) to Day 422 (End of Study) ]
    An adverse event (AE) was any untoward medical occurrence in a study participant administered a pharmaceutical product and which does not necessarily have a causal relationship with treatment. A serious AE (SAE) was an AE resulting in any of following outcomes or deemed significant for any other reason: death; initial/prolonged inpatient hospitalization; life-threatening experience (immediate risk of dying); persistent or significant disability/incapacity; congenital anomaly (in offspring of participant). AEs may be treatment emergent (TE) [that is, occurring after initial receipt of investigational product] or non-TE. An AESI is one of scientific and medical concern specific to understanding biologics and requires close monitoring and rapid communication by investigator to sponsor.
  • Number of Participants With Clinically Significant Laboratory Abnormalities in Investigations Reported as Treatment-Emergent Adverse Events [ Time Frame: Day 1 (Baseline) to Day 422 (End of Study) ]
    Any medically significant change in laboratory evaluations were recorded as Treatment emergent adverse events.
  • Number of Participants With Vital Signs Abnormalities Reported as Treatment-Emergent Adverse Events (TEAEs) [ Time Frame: Day 1 (Baseline) to Day 422 (End of Study) ]
    Vital sign parameters are temperature, blood pressure, respiratory rate, heart rate and weight. Vital signs abnormalities were reported as TEAEs.
  • Number of Participants With Electrocardiogram (ECG) Abnormalities Reported as Treatment-Emergent Adverse Events (TEAEs) [ Time Frame: Day 1 (Baseline) to Day 422 (End of Study) ]
    Any medically significant changes from the screening ECG was recorded as TEAEs. An abnormal ECG findings such as QT prolonged were reported as treatment emergent adverse events.
  • Percentage of SLE Participants With Positive Anti-drug Antibody (ADA) [ Time Frame: Days 1, 85, 141, 169, 253, 337 (Treatment Phase), 365, 396, and 422 (Follow-up Period) ]
    Anti-drug antibody responses to anifrolumab in serum were evaluated.
  • Neutralization Ratio of 21-Gene Type I Interferon (IFN) Signature for Participants With Positive Baseline Pharmacodynamic (PD) Gene Signature [ Time Frame: Days 29, 85, 141, 169, 253, 337 (treatment phase), on Days 365, 396, and 422 (follow up period) ]
    The PD positive and negative gene signature was determined by comparing the expression of type I IFN-inducible genes in a 21-gene panel in study participants relative to pooled normal blood collected from healthy participants.
  • Maximum Observed Plasma Concentration (Cmax) of Anifrolumab at Day 1, 169 and 337 [ Time Frame: Pre-infusion and 15 minutes post-infusion on Day 1, 169 and 337 ]
    Maximum plasma concentration (Cmax) was defined as the peak plasma level of anifrolumab, derived from plasma concentration -time data.
  • Accumulation Ratio of Maximum Observed Plasma Concentration (Cmax,AR) of Anifrolumab [ Time Frame: Pre-infusion and 15 minutes post-infusion on Day 169 and 337 ]
    Accumulation ratio for maximum plasma concentration (Cmax,AR) of anifrolumab after multiple administration at Day 169 and 337 was calculated.
  • Trough Concentration (Ctrough) of Anifrolumab at Day 29, 169 and 365 [ Time Frame: Pre-infusion and 15 minutes post-infusion on Day 29, 169 and 365 ]
    Trough concentration (Ctrough) of anifrolumab at Day 29, 169 and 365 were calculated.
  • Accumulation Ratio of Trough Concentration (Ctrough,AR) of Anifrolumab at Day 169 and 365 [ Time Frame: Pre-infusion and 15 minutes post-infusion on Day 169 and 365 ]
    Accumulation ratio for trough concentration (Ctrough,AR) of anifrolumab after multiple administration at Day 169 and 365 was calculated.
