EADV 2020

The Janus kinase (JAK) inhibitor upadacitinib was specifically developed for therapy of AD as key cytokines involved in the pathogenesis of AD signal via the JAK1 pathway. A previous phase 2b trial demonstrated that upadacitinib monotherapy was efficacious with a favourable benefit-risk profile compared with placebo in adults with moderate-to-severe AD. The 2 replicate, randomized, double-blind, phase 3 trials Measure Up 1 and Measure Up 2 aimed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of monotherapy with upadacitinib versus placebo in adolescents and adults with moderate-to-severe AD.
