The purpose of this study is to assess the safety, tolerability and efficacy of emapalumab in children and adults with macrophage activation syndrome (sHLH/MAS) in Still's disease (including systemic juvenile idiopathic arthritis and adult onset Still's disease) or with sHLH/MAS in systemic lupus erythematous, resenting an inadequate response to high dose glucocorticoid treatment.


Study NI-0501-14 is a two-cohort trial that enrolls subjects who are diagnosed with sHLH/MAS (MAS being a form of secondary HLH) and who are presenting an inadequate response to high doses of GCs. These subjects will be enrolled in 2 cohorts as per their background disease. The cohorts are defined as follows:

  • Cohort 1: MAS in the context of sJIA and AOSD.
  • Cohort 2: MAS in the context of pediatric and adult SLE.

The study has the objectives to investigate the efficacy, safety and tolerability, for 8 weeks, and PK and PD, QoL and immunogenicity in these 2 cohorts for up to 1 year after last dose of of emapalumab.
