Brief Summary:
This study investigates the efficacy and safety of belimumab compared to placebo, in addition to standard therapy, for the treatment of participants with systemic sclerosis associated interstitial lung disease (SSc-ILD). The study will evaluate the effect of belimumab treatment on lung function as well as on extra-pulmonary disease manifestations, including skin thickening and general symptoms, such as fatigue, that impact quality of life (QoL).

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Absolute change from baseline in Forced Vital Capacity (FVC) millilitre (mL) at Week 52 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 52 ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Absolute change from baseline in modified Rodnan Skin Score (mRSS) at Week 52 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 52 ]
    The modified Rodnan Skin Score (mRSS) is an evaluation of the patients skin thickness rated by clinical palpation using a 0 to 3 scale. The scale differentiates between 0 = normal skin, 1 = mild thickness, 2 = moderate thickness, and 3 = severe thickness. The assessment is made across 17 pre-defined areas of the body, with total score ranging between 0 and 51. Higher scores indicate worse skin thickening.

  2. Absolute change from baseline in Functional Assessment of Chronic Illness Therapy (FACIT)-Fatigue score at Week 52 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 52 ]
    FACIT-fatigue is a validated patient-reported measure developed originally to assess fatigue in individuals with cancer and has subsequently been used and validated in numerous chronic conditions, including SSc. FACIT-Fatigue scores range from 0-52 (higher scores indicate less fatigue).

  3. Time to Systemic sclerosis (SSc) progression or death [ Time Frame: From the date of assignment until the date of first documented progression or date of death from any cause, whichever comes first, assessed up to 52 Weeks ]
    SSc progression or death is defined as the time when major organ-based complications develop, or the participant dies.

  4. Absolute change from baseline in FVC percentage (%) predicted at Week 52 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 52 ]
  5. Relative decline from baseline in FVC (mL) greater than or equal to (≥)5% at Week 52 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 52 ]
  6. Relative decline from baseline in FVC (mL) ≥10% at Week 52 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 52 ]
  7. Absolute change from baseline in mRSS at Week 26 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 26 ]
    The modified Rodnan Skin Score (mRSS) is an evaluation of the patients skin thickness rated by clinical palpation using a 0 to 3 scale. The scale differentiates between 0 = normal skin, 1 = mild thickness, 2 = moderate thickness, and 3 = severe thickness with inability to pinch the skin into a fold. The assessment is made across 17 pre-defined areas of the body and therefore the total score can range from 0 to 51. Higher scores indicate worse skin thickening.

  8. Proportion of participants achieving ≥20% increase in mRSS at Week 26 & 52 [ Time Frame: At Week 26 and Week 52 ]
  9. Absolute change from baseline in Quantitative interstitial lung disease - whole lung (QILD-WL) at Week 52 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 52 ]
  10. Absolute change from baseline in Quantitative lung fibrosis - whole lung (QLF-WL) at Week 52 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 52 ]
  11. Proportion of participants achieving ≥2% increase in QILD at Week 52 [ Time Frame: At Week 52 ]
  12. Absolute change from baseline in Carbon monoxide diffusing capacity (DLco) % predicted at Week 52 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 52 ]
  13. Relative decline from baseline in DLco % predicted ≥15% at Week 52 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 52 ]
  14. Absolute change from baseline in Cough Numeric Rating Scale (NRS) at Week 52 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 52 ]
    The cough NRS enables the participant to rate their cough on a defined scale from 0 to 10, where higher score indicating worse cough symptoms.

  15. Absolute change from baseline in Scleroderma Skin Patient-Reported Outcome (SSPRO) at Week 52 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 52 ]
    SSPRO a patient-reported outcome (PRO) instrument developed to assess the skin-related quality of life (QoL) in participants with SSc. SSPRO has 18 items that assess four SSc skin-related HRQoL domain (emotional effects, physical effects, physical limitations and social effects). The higher score indicates worse impact on QoL.

  16. Absolute change from baseline in Health Assessment Questionnaire Disability Index (HAQ-DI) at Week 52 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 52 ]
    The HAQ-DI is a 26-question instrument assessing the degree of difficulty in accomplishing tasks in eight functional areas: dressing and grooming, arising, eating, walking, hygiene, reach, grip, and common daily activities. Each question is scored 0-3 (where 0=without difficulty & 3=unable to do). Higher scores reflect worse disability

  17. Absolute change from baseline in Short Form-36 Health Survey Questionnaire (SF-36) at Week 52 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 52 ]
    The SF-36 yields an 8-scale profile of functional health and well-being scores as well as physical and mental component health summary scores. The SF-36 consists of eight scaled scores, which are the weighted sums of the questions in their section. Each scale is directly transformed into a 0-100 scale on the assumption that each question carries equal weight. The lower the score the more disability.

  18. Absolute change from baseline in Patient Global Assessment of SSc Disease Activity (PtGA) at Week 52. [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 52 ]
    PtGA is a patient reported outcome scale designed to capture the participants overall assessment of their disease. The participants are asked to score their disease on a scale from 0 to 10 where higher score indicates higher severity

  19. Absolute change from baseline in Physician global assessment (PhGA) at Week 52 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 52 ]
    The PhGA is a score which enables the treating physician to rate the participants disease on a scale from 0 to 10, where higher score indicates greater severity.

  20. Absolute change from baseline in Transition Dyspnea Index (TDI) at Week 52 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 52 ]
    TDI assess dyspnea severity over 3 components: functional impairment, magnitude of task and magnitude of effort. Each component has 7 grades, ranging from -3 (major deterioration) to +3 (major improvement), which are summed to calculate a score, ranging between -9 and +9. The lower the score the more severely the participant is affected by dyspnea.

  21. Number of participants with Adverse Events (AEs), Adverse Events of special interest (AESIs) and Serious AEs (SAEs) up to Week 52 [ Time Frame: Up to Week 52 ]
  22. Absolute change from baseline in DLco % predicted at Week 52 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 52 ]
