  • Abatacept for SLE Arthritis (IM101-330)

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This research trial is for patients who have been diagnosed with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) with swollen, tender joints (which is called inflammatory polyarthritis) because of the SLE. The purpose of this clinical research study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of treatment with abatacept (Abatacept) 125mg injected subcutaneously (under the skin) weekly for 16 weeks versus placebo injections(a substance with no active ingredients and therefore may have no treatment benefit) in subjects with SLE and inflammatory polyarthritis. The effectiveness will be assessed primarily by the number of swollen, tender joints (called a joint count) at each of study visits. Study Medication Abatacept is approved in the U.S. for treating rheumatoid arthritis by prescription and has not been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for treating SLE yet. In this study, subjects will receive treatment with either abatacept or placebo once a week for 16 weeks (a total of 16 injections).

  • Safety and Efficacy of Filgotinib and GS-9876 in Adults With Lupus Membranous Nephropathy (LMN)

  • JBT-101 in Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE)

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    The objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of JBT-101 (also known as lenabasum) in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). - One hundred adults with active joint disease and at least moderate pain will be enrolled in this study to evaluate treatment of their systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) with JBT-101. JBT-101 is a synthetic endocannabinoid receptor type 2 (CB2) agonist and an activator of the body's normal processes, to resolve innate immune responses without immunosuppression. - Participants will receive 2 doses of JBT-101 by mouth (three groups of varying doses) or, placebo, for 84 days and will continue to be followed for an additional 28 days. Participant visits to assess endpoints occur on Day 1, then every 2 weeks twice, then every 4 weeks three times, for a total of six visits. - The change in maximum daily pain Numerical Rating Scale (NRS) score from Baseline (Visit 1) will be assessed at every visit.

  • Phase 2 Trial of Mesenchymal Stem Cells in Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (MiSLE)

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) obtained from umbilical cords for the treatment of adults with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). The goal of this study is to determine if patients receiving an MSC infusion plus standard of care respond better than patients receiving placebo infusion plus standard of care.

  • A Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of CC-220 in Subjects With Active Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    The purpose of this Phase 2, multicenter, randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of an oral treatment regimen of CC-220 versus placebo in adult subjects with active systemic lupus erythematosus. Approximately 280 subjects with a documented diagnosis of SLE will be randomized 2:2:1:2 to receive CC-220 (0.45 mg QD, 0.3 mg QD or 0.15 mg QD) or identically appearing placebo.

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This Phase II study will compare the efficacy and safety of obinutuzumab plus mycophenolate mofetil (MMF)/mycophenolic acid (MPA) with placebo plus MMF/MPA in participants with proliferative LN.

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This trial seeks to describe the effect of withdrawal from mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) on risk of clinically significant disease reactivation in quiescent SLE patients who have been on long-term MMF therapy.
