A Study of NKTR-358 in Participants With Systemic Lupus Erythematosis (SLE)

first filed June 2018, verified November 2018

CATEGORIES: General SLE

The main purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of a study drug known as NKTR-358 in participants with SLE. NKTR-358 is a potential first-in-class therapeutic that may address an underlying immune system imbalance in patients with many autoimmune conditions. It targets the interleukin (IL-2) receptor complex in the body in order to stimulate proliferation of inhibitory immune cells known as regulatory T cells. By activating these cells, NKTR-358 may act to bring the immune system back into balance.
