A Study of Guselkumab in Participants With Active Lupus Nephritis (ORCHID-LN)

Brief Summary:

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of guselkumab in participants with active lupus nephritis (LN).

Detailed Description:
Guselkumab is a monoclonal antibody (mAb) that binds to human interleukin (IL)-23 with high affinity and blocks binding of extracellular IL-23 to cell surface IL-23 receptor, inhibiting IL 23 specific intracellular signaling and subsequent activation and cytokine production. It is used in treatment of plaque psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, generalized pustular psoriasis, erythrodermic psoriasis. Lupus is a heterogeneous autoimmune disease with lesions confined to skin (cutaneous lupus erythematosus [CLE]) to others that involve 1 or more vital internal organs (systemic lupus erythematosus [SLE]). Renal involvement due to SLE is termed lupus nephritis (LN). There is a high unmet need for new treatment options in LN that are safe and effective, especially new therapies that can provide improved long-term efficacy over currently available therapies. This study will evaluate safety and efficacy of guselkumab added to standard-of-care compared to placebo added to standard-of-care. Total duration of study is up to 68 weeks: a less than or equal to 8 week screening period, a 48 week double-blind treatment period, a 12 week safety follow-up period after last dose. Participants who complete the assessments at Week 52 and have achieved complete renal response (CRR) may have the option to participate in the long-term extension (LTE) of study through Week 152 and the 12-week safety follow-up visit. Hypothesis of this study is that guselkumab plus standard-of-care is superior to placebo plus standard-of-care in participants with active LN as measured by the proportion of participants inducing at least a 50 percentage reduction of proteinuria with protocol specified steroid tapering regimen at Week 24. Safety assessments include Adverse events (AEs), clinical laboratory tests (hematology and chemistry), systolic and diastolic blood pressures over time, monitoring for hypersensitivity reactions, AEs temporally associated with infusion, injection-site reactions, suicidality assessment, and early detection of active tuberculosis (TB).
