Accepts Healthy Volunteers
Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms
An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.
An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.
Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.
|Eligible Ages||18 Years - 75 Years|
This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.
Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.
Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.
Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.
Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.
The sponsor is the organization or person who oversees the clinical study and is responsible for analyzing the study data.

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 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. 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 event (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).
Experimental: Guselkumab+Standard of Care
Participants will receive guselkumab Dose 1 intravenously (IV) at Weeks 0, 4 and 8 and guselkumab Dose 2 subcutaneous (SC) every 4 weeks (q4w) from Week 12 through Week 48 along with standard-of-care treatment of mycophenolate mofetil (MMF)/mycophenolic acid (MPA) and glucocorticoids.
Placebo Comparator: Placebo+Standard of Care
Participants will receive placebo IV at Weeks 0, 4 and 8 and placebo SC q4w from Week 12 through Week 48 along with standard-of-care treatment of MMF/MPA and glucocorticoids.
Drug: - Guselkumab Dose 1
Participants will receive guselkumab Dose 1 via IV administration.
Drug: - Placebo
Participants will receive placebo IV at Weeks 0, 4 and 8 (that is, 3 IV doses) and placebo SC q4w from Week 12 through Week 48.
Drug: - Guselkumab Dose 2
Participants will receive guselkumab Dose 2 via SC route.
Drug: - Standard-of-care treatment
Participants will receive standard of care treatment including MMF/MPA and glucocorticoids from Week 12 through Week 48.
