    Time to first occurrence of SRI-4 from baseline to Week 60

  6. Proportion of participants achieving SRI-4 at Week 60 while maintaining between Week 36 and Week 60 a reduced CS dose of predniso(lo)ne ≤ 5 mg/day or ≤ baseline dose, whichever is lower [ Time Frame: Week 36 to Week 60 ]
    Achieving SRI-4 at Week 60 while maintaining between Week 36 and Week 60 a reduced CS dose of predniso(lo)ne ≤ 5 mg/day or ≤ baseline dose, whichever is lower

  7. Proportion of participants achieving SRI-6 [ Time Frame: Week 60 ]

    SRI-6 response is defined as:

    • SLEDAI-2K reduction from baseline of ≥ 6 points
    • No BILAG-2004 worsening, defined as ≥ 1 new A or ≥ 2 new B items compared to baseline
    • No worsening in PhGA, defined as an increase of ≥ 0.3 from baseline on a 0 to 3 visual analog scale

  8. Proportion of participants achieving SF-36 Bodily Pain response [ Time Frame: Week 60 ]
    Achieving Short Form 36 (SF-36) Bodily Pain response

  9. Proportion of participants with Adverse Events (AEs) [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 60 ]
    To evaluate safety and tolerability of ianalumab s.c. monthly

  10. Incidence and titer of anti-drug (ianalumab) antibodies (ADAs) in serum over time [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 164 ]
    To evaluate immunogenicity of ianalumab s.c. monthly

  11. Ianalumab concentration in serum during the treatment and follow-up [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 164 ]
