The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of an intravenous treatment regimen of anifrolumab versus placebo in Asian participants with active systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE).


This is a Phase III, multicenter, multinational, randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of an intravenous treatment regimen of 300 mg anifrolumab versus placebo in participants with moderate to severe, autoantibody positive SLE while receiving SOC treatment. The study will be performed in participants aged 18 to 70 years of age.

Participants with a confirmed diagnosis of moderate to severe active SLE and are currently receiving SOC comprising of oral corticosteroids (OCSs) and/or antimalarial, and/or immunosuppressants, either alone or any combination of them, for a required duration of treatment at a stable dose, as described in the inclusion criteria shall be included. Participants must have eligible scores for SLEDAI-2K, BILAG-2004, and PGA as confirmed by the DACRT.

Eligible participants will be randomised in a 1:1 ratio to receive either a fixed intravenous dose of 300 mg anifrolumab plus SOC or placebo plus SOC every 4 weeks (Q4W) for a total of 13 doses (Week 0 to Week 48), with the primary endpoint evaluated at the Week 52 visit.
