A Study to Evaluate the Safety Pharmacokinetics (PK) and Pharmacodynamics (PD) of TAK-079 in Combination With Standard Background Therapy in Participants With Moderate to Severe Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE)


Brief description of study

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of TAK-079 in comparison with matching placebo, administered once every 3 weeks over a 12-week dosing period in participants with active SLE who are receiving stable background therapy for SLE.

Detailed Study Description

TAK-079 is being tested in a study population with moderate to severe SLE. This study will evaluate the safety and biologic activity of TAK-079 or matching placebo in combination with stable SLE background therapy.

The study will enroll approximately 24 participants across 3 sequentially enrolling cohorts. Each cohort will enroll 8 participants, where 6 participants will be assigned to TAK-079 injection, and 2 participants will be assigned to Placebo. Participants will receive TAK-079 or matching placebo in combination with principal investigator directed background therapy for SLE.

This multi-center trial will be conducted in the United States. Participants will make multiple visits to the clinic, and will be followed up for the safety assessment for the additional 12 weeks up to Week 24 after receiving their last dose of study drug. Based on the clinical assessments, participants may complete or may advance to long-term safety follow up period for an additional 12-week safety monitoring period up to Week 36.
