Phase 2 study, in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus, shows that litifilimab is associated with a greater reduction from baseline in the number of swollen and tender joints than placebo, over a period of 24 weeks.
N Engl J Med. 2022;387(4):321–331 doi: 10.1056/NEJMoa2118024
Phase II study, in patients with active cutaneous lupus erythematosus, shows that litifilimab improved scores on a measure of skin disease activity, over 16 weeks, compared to placebo.
Filgotinib or lanraplenib in moderate to severe cutaneous lupus erythematosus: a phase 2, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study
Rheumatology (Oxford). 2022;61(6):2413–2423 doi: 10.1093/rheumatology/keab685
Proof-of-concept study for the safety and efficacy of filgotinib (FIL) and lanraplenib (LANRA) in cutaneous lupus (CLE) fails to meet primary endpoint, but select subgroups displayed a numerically greater treatment response to FIL relative to placebo.
Phase 2b study evaluating the pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics of oral iberdomide in patients with active SLE demonstrates that iberdomide significantly improves lupus disease activity and reduces hallmarks of the immunopathogenesis of SLE.
Kidney Int Rep. 2021;7(3):516-525 doi: 10.1056/NEJMoa2106535
This Phase 2 trial evaluated iberdomide in patients with moderate-to-severe systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE).
Anifrolumab, an Anti-Interferon-α Receptor Monoclonal Antibody, in Moderate-to-Severe Systemic Lupus Erythematosus
Arthritis Rheumatol 2017;69:376–86
One of the challenges of treating SLE is the limited efficacy and poor tolerability of current therapies.
