A Phase Ib Study of Milatuzumab Administered Subcutaneously in Patients With Active Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE)

Milatuzumab will be given subcutaneously at different dose levels once (depending on the
dose level) for 4 weeks to determine if milatuzumab helps to control lupus (SLE).

Milatuzumab or placebo will be given subcutaneously once weekly for 4 weeks to determine if
milatuzumab helps to control lupus (SLE). The treatment portion of the study lasts 4 weeks.
Then patients are followed for disease activity for at least 12 weeks. If patients respond
to the study drug, they may be eligible for one course of retreatment, again followed by 12
weeks of follow-up. Patients who showed a response will continue to be followed at
timepoints up to one year after treatment to assess how long the response lasts.
