Sanofi and Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc. recently shared the results of a Phase 3 Chronos study as a late-breaking abstract at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Dermatology.
The study had evaluated Dupixent as a treatment to be used in conjunction with topical corticosteroids for patients with uncontrolled moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis (AD).
“Moderate-to-severe AD is a lifelong chronic inflammatory disease,” the companies wrote in a press release. “Despite currently available therapies, there still remains an unmet need for treatment to help those adults struggling to manage their moderate to severe AD.”
Dupixent is under priority review by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
