How DUPIXENT May Help

DUPIXENT was studied in 3 clinical trials with more than 2,100 adults with uncontrolled moderate-to-severe eczema (atopic dermatitis).

What You Should Know About the Adult Patients in These Studies:

52%
had moderate atopic dermatitis
48%
had severe atopic dermatitis
≈38 years
Average age
≈28 years
Average duration of the disease
≈55%
Average body surface area involvement

Results in two 16-week adult clinical trials with DUPIXENT when used alone compared to a placebo

Nearly half of adult patients saw 75%
skin improvement
and some even saw
90% improvement
Almost 4 times more adult patients taking DUPIXENT saw clear or almost clear skin as compared with those not taking DUPIXENT (37% taking DUPIXENT as compared to 9% taking placebo)
Adult patients experienced significant
itch reduction
, some patients as early as
2 weeks
The most common side effects in adult patients were injection site reactions, eye and eyelid inflammation, including redness, swelling and itching, and cold sores in your mouth or on your lips.
Quick Tips
  • Photograph your skin regularly; this may help you determine if DUPIXENT is having an impact.
  • Jot down your symptoms of uncontrolled moderate-to-severe eczema that you feel each month. Can you tell if your itching has decreased?
