The DUPIXENT Biologics License Application (BLA) was accepted for Priority Review by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) with a target action date of March 29, 2017. The FDA granted DUPIXENT Breakthrough Therapy designation in uncontrolled moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis in 2014. The European Medicines Agency (EMA) and FDA have conditionally accepted DUPIXENT as the trade name for dupilumab.
DUPIXENT is currently under clinical development and its safety and efficacy have not been fully evaluated by any regulatory authority. If approved, dupilumab would be commercialized by Regeneron and Sanofi Genzyme, the specialty care global business unit of Sanofi.
About Atopic Dermatitis
AD is the most common form of eczema and is characterized by unpredictable flare-ups. It is a chronic inflammatory disease with symptoms often appearing on the skin. Moderate-to-severe AD is characterized by rashes and can include intense, persistent and debilitating itching, skin dryness, cracking, redness, crusting, and oozing. Itch is one of the most burdensome symptoms for patients and can be debilitating.
It’s estimated that approximately 300,000 people in the United States are living with uncontrolled moderate-to-severe AD and despite their current treatment, are most in need of new treatment options. Despite currently available therapies, there still remains an unmet need for treatment that helps those adults struggling to manage their moderate-to-severe AD.
