Title Percentage of Participants With a Cutaneous Lupus Erythematosus Disease Activity and Severity Index (CLASI) Activity Score Greater Than or Equal to (>=) 10 at Baseline Who Achieved a >= 4-point Reduction
Hide Description The CLASI consists of two scores, the first summarizes the activity of the disease while the second is a measure of the damage done by the disease. Activity is scored on the basis of erythema, scale/hyperkeratosis, mucous membrane involvement, acute hair loss and non-scarring alopecia. Damage is scored in terms of dyspigmentation and scarring, including scarring alopecia. The percentage of participants with a CLASI activity score >=10 at baseline who achieved a clinically significant (>=4-point) reduction at Day 365 were reported.

5.Secondary Outcome
Title Percentage of Participants Who Achieved a Greater Than 3-Point Improvement in the Functional Assessment of Chronic Illness Therapy (FACIT)-Fatigue Scale
Hide Description FACIT-F is a 13-item questionnaire. Participants scored each item on a 5-point scale: 0 (not at all) to 4 (very much). Larger the participant’s response to the questions (with the exception of 2 negatively stated), greater was the participant’s fatigue. For all questions, except for the 2 negatively stated ones, the code was reversed and a new score was calculated as (4 minus the participant’s response). The sum of all responses resulted in the FACIT-Fatigue score for a total possible score of 0 (worse score) to 52 (better score).
