Itch Relief

A total of 367 children (6-11 years of age) in Trial 8 (16 weeks) with severe atopic dermatitis inadequately controlled with topical prescription therapies were randomized to DUPIXENT + TCS or placebo + TCS. This study compared both weight-tiered and non-weight-tiered dosing regimens. From these results, the recommended dosing for children aged 6-11 years is as follows: Patients ≥30 kg but <60 kg received 200 mg Q2W after a 400 mg loading dose. Patients 15 kg but <30 kg received 300 mg Q4W after a 600 mg loading dose. An endpoint included the reduction in itch as defined by ≥4-point improvement in Peak Pruritus NRS at Week 161,2

  1. Full Analysis Set includes all subjects randomized.
  2. In the primary analyses of the efficacy endpoints, subjects who received rescue treatment or with missing data were considered nonresponders.
  3. At Day 1, subjects (baseline weight <30 kg) received 600 mg of DUPIXENT.
  4. At Day 1, subjects (baseline weight ≥30 kg) received 400 mg of DUPIXENT.

Pruritus NRS assesses the average itch intensity over the previous 24 hours3

A patient-reported measure that uses a 0- to 10-point scale, with which patients are asked3:

"On a scale of 0 to 10, how would you rate your itch overall (on average) during the previous 24 hours?"

The Worst

A reduction of at least 4 points in pruritus NRS from baseline is a clinically meaningful change.1
