Sanofi’s Dupixent improves skin clearance in paediatric atopic dermatitis

As the therapy secured approval in Europe for treatment of adolescent patients with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis, Sanofi has revealed new Phase 3 data for Dupixent (dupilimab) in the treatment of severe atopic dermatitis in paediatric patients aged between six and 11 years old.

When used in combination with standard-of-care topical corticosteroids (TCS), 33% of patients receiving Dupixent every four weeks and 30% receiving it every two weeks achieved clear or almost clear skin with an Investigator’s Global Assessment (IGA) score of 0 or 1, compared to 11% with placebo.
