DUPIXENT is not an immunosuppressant and avoids broad immunosuppression. It is unknown if DUPIXENT will influence the immune response against helminth infections. Treat patients with pre-existing helminth infections before initiating therapy with DUPIXENT. If patients become infected while receiving treatment with DUPIXENT and do not respond to anti-helminth treatment, discontinue treatment with DUPIXENT until the infection resolves. DUPIXENT is a human monoclonal antibody that inhibits the signaling of IL-4 and IL-13, two of the type 2 cytokines that contribute to type 2 inflammation in atopic dermatitis.1

In the DUPIXENT pivotal clinical trials, the most common adverse reactions (incidence ≥1%) in patients with atopic dermatitis were injection site reactions, conjunctivitis, blepharitis, oral herpes, keratitis, eye pruritus, other herpes simplex virus infection, dry eye, and eosinophilia. The safety profile of DUPIXENT in pediatric patients 6 months to 17 years of age through Week 16 was similar to the safety profile from studies in adults with atopic dermatitis. In an open-label extension study, study (AD-1434), the safety profile of DUPIXENT ± TCS in pediatric patients observed through Week 52 was consistent with that seen in adults with atopic dermatitis. In AD-1434, hand-foot-and-mouth disease and skin papilloma (incidence ≥2%) was reported in patients 6 months to 5 years of age. These cases did not lead to study drug discontinuation.1
