A Study of the Safety of Oral Elsubrutinib Capsules and Oral Upadacitinib Tablets Given Alone or in Combination (ABBV-599) for Adult Participants With Moderately to Severely Active Systemic Lupus Erythematosus to Assess Change in Disease State

Sponsor: AbbVie

Sommario: Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) is an immune-mediated disease associated with inflammation of multiple organ systems. This study will evaluate how well elsubrutinib and upadacitinib given alone or as the ABBV-599 combination (elsubrutinib/upadacitinib) works within the body, in participants who completed study M19-130. This study will assess the change in disease symptoms. ABBV-599 is an investigational drug being developed for the treatment of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE). This study is "double-blinded", which means that neither the trial participants nor the study doctors will know who will be given which study drug. Study doctors put the participants into 1 of 4 groups called treatment arms. Each group receives a different treatment. Adult participants with a diagnosis of SLE will be enrolled. Around 260 participants will be enrolled in the study in approximately 100 sites worldwide. Participants will receive the following for up to 56 weeks: Participants will receive oral elsubrutinib capsules and/or oral upadacitinib tablets once daily for up to 56 weeks. Participants who were receiving elsubrutinib and/or upadacitnib in M19-130 will continue to receive the same treatment in this study. Participants who were receiving placebo in M19-130 will be re-randomized to one of the 2 combination treatment arms in this study. Arm 1: Elsubrutinib Dose A and Upadacitinib Dose A Arm 2: Elsubrutinib Dose A and Upadacitinib Dose B There may be higher burden for participants in this trial compared to their standard of care. Participants will attend monthly visits during the course of the study at a hospital or clinic. The effect of the treatment will be checked by medical assessments, blood tests, checking for side effects and completing questionnaires.




Fase 2


  • Elsubrutinib
  • Placebo for Elsubrutinib
  • Upadacitinib
  • Placebo for Upadacitinib


  • Misura: Number of Participants With Adverse Events
  • Tempo: Through Week 108
  • Descrizione: An adverse event (AE) is defined as any untoward medical occurrence in a patient or clinical investigation participant administered a pharmaceutical product and which does not necessarily have a causal relationship with this treatment. A serious adverse event (SAE) is an event that results in death, is life-threatening, requires or prolongs hospitalization, results in a congenital anomaly, persistent or significant disability/incapacity or is an important medical event that, based on medical judgment, may jeopardize the participant and may require medical or surgical intervention to prevent any of the outcomes listed above. Treatment-emergent events (TEAEs) are defined as any event that began or worsened in severity after the first dose of study drug. For more details on adverse events please see the Adverse Event section.


  • Misura: Achievement of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) Responder Index (SRI)-4
  • Tempo: Through Week 104
  • Descrizione: SRI is a composite responder index based on improvement in disease activity without worsening of the overall condition or the development of significant disease activity in new organ systems.
  • Misura: Achievement of British Isles Lupus Assessment Group (BILAG)-Based Combined Lupus Assessment (BICLA)
  • Tempo: Through Week 104
  • Descrizione: BICLA is a composite responder index based on improvement in organ systems without worsening of the overall condition and improvement in disease activity.
  • Misura: Change in Steroid Burden
  • Tempo: Baseline of M19-130 (Week 0) Through Week 104
  • Descrizione: Steroid Burden is measured as milligrams (mg) of prednisone-equivalent administered.
  • Misura: Number of Flares Per Patient-Year (Respectively and Overall) by Safety of Estrogens in Lupus Erythematosus National Assessment (SELENA) SLE Disease Activity Index (SLEDAI) flare index (SFI)
  • Tempo: Through Week 104
  • Descrizione: SELENA SLEDAI flare index defines (mild, moderate or severe) SLE flares using the SLEDAI-2K score, disease activity scenarios, treatment changes, and Physician's Global Assessment of Disease Activity.
