Clinical Trials Center at DermAssociates is currently participating in a Phase 3
clinical research study for adolescent patients with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis. We are evaluating the efficacy of an investigational biologic agent called dupilumab which is a fully human monoclonal antibody directed
against IL-4 and IL-13. The results of studies looking at the efficacy and safety of dupilumab for moderate-to-severe
atopic dermatitis were recently published in Lancet 2016; 387: 40-52.
We are actively seeking patients ages ≥ 12-< 18 years of age with moderate-to-severe chronic atopic dermatitis to participate in this new phase 3 study. Eligible patients will be randomized in a 1:1:1 ratio to receive dupilumab or placebo for 12 weeks. The study is expected to demonstrate the efficacy and safety of dupilumab as
a monotherapy in adolescent patients. Patients who participate in the study may subsequently be eligible to participate in an open-label extension study.
