Atopic dermatitis (AD), the most common form of eczema, is an inflammatory disease characterized by itchy, inflamed skin. According to the National Institutes of Health, it affects approximately 30 percent of people in the United States. DUPIXENT® is a monoclonal antibody that works with the immune system and has demonstrated improved signs and symptoms in adult patients with inadequately controlled moderate-to-severe AD.
“Moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis is a debilitating, life-altering disease with very limited treatment options,” said Paul Urick, Diplomat’s president. “We are thrilled to offer this new option for patients with unmet needs.”
DUPIXENT® is administered through subcutaneous injection.
DUPIXENT® is co-developed by Sanofi and Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, Inc. For full prescribing information, click here.
