Consider referring to a DERMATOLOGIST or ALLERGIST today to see what’s possible with DUPIXENT

When topical Rx therapies are not enough, DUPIXENT may be appropriate

Patients aged 6+ years may be appropriate for DUPIXENT if they:

  • Have tried a variety of topical prescription therapies for moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis and are still uncontrolled1
  • Suffer from inadequate control of pruritus1
  • Have ≥10% of their body covered with lesions and/or may involve problem areas, such as the face, hands, and feet1,2
  • Have moderate-to-severe erythema and moderate-to-severe papulation/infiltration (IGA 3 or 4)1,3

Unlike topical and oral corticosteroids, DUPIXENT specifically targets a
source of underlying inflammation to proactively treat atopic dermatitis1,4

Atopic dermatitis is a chronic, systemic disease driven in part by persistent
underlying type 2 inflammation3,5

  • Even when patients are not in a flare, they continue to
    experience underlying inflammation2
  • Systemic treatment may be needed to help manage
    uncontrolled moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis1,6

Most Common Adverse Reactions

The most common adverse reactions (incidence ≥1% at Week 16) in adult patients with atopic dermatitis were injection site reactions,
conjunctivitis, blepharitis, oral herpes, keratitis, eye pruritus, other herpes simplex virus infection, and dry eye. The safety profile in children
and adolescents through Week 16 was similar to that of adults with atopic dermatitis. In an open-label extension study, the long-term safety
profile of DUPIXENT in adolescents and children observed through Week 52 was consistent with that seen in adults with atopic dermatitis.1

DUPIXENT is indicated for the treatment of patients aged 6 years and older with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis whose disease is not adequately controlled with topical prescription therapies or when those therapies are not advisable. Patients may be appropriate for DUPIXENT is they1:

  • Have tried a variety of topical Rx therapies and are still uncontrolled
  • Suffer from inadequate control of pruritus
  • Have ≥10% of their body covered with lesions and/or may involve problem areas such as the face, hands, and feet
  • Have moderate-to-severe erythema and moderate-to-severe papulation/infiltration (Investigator's Global Assessment [IGA] score of 3=moderate or 4=severe)

99% of adult commercial patients are covered for DUPIXENT, with 82% of those lives having to fail only 1 or 2 prescription topical treatments. You'll have to check with your patients' specific insurers to confirm their specific coverage.3,a

Important Safety
Information and Indication

CONTRAINDICATION: DUPIXENT is contraindicated in patients with known hypersensitivity to dupilumab or any of its excipients.

WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS

Hypersensitivity: Hypersensitivity reactions, including generalized urticaria, rash, erythema nodosum, anaphylaxis and serum sickness or serum sickness-like reactions, were reported in <1% of subjects who received DUPIXENT in clinical trials. If a clinically significant hypersensitivity reaction occurs, institute appropriate therapy and discontinue DUPIXENT.

Conjunctivitis and Keratitis: Conjunctivitis and keratitis occurred more frequently in atopic dermatitis subjects who received DUPIXENT. Conjunctivitis was the most frequently reported eye disorder. Most subjects with conjunctivitis or keratitis recovered or were recovering during the treatment period. Advise patients to report new onset or worsening eye symptoms to their healthcare provider.

Reduction of Corticosteroid Dosage: Do not discontinue systemic, topical or inhaled corticosteroids abruptly upon initiation with DUPIXENT. Reductions in corticosteroid dose, if appropriate, should be gradual and performed under the direct supervision of a physician. Reduction in corticosteroid dose may be associated with systemic withdrawal symptoms and/or unmask conditions previously suppressed by systemic corticosteroid therapy.

Atopic Dermatitis Patients with Comorbid Asthma: Advise patients not to adjust or stop their asthma treatments without consultation with their physicians.

Parasitic (Helminth) Infections: 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.

ADVERSE REACTIONS: The most common adverse reactions (incidence ≥1% at Week 16) in adult patients with atopic dermatitis are injection site reactions, conjunctivitis, blepharitis, oral herpes, keratitis, eye pruritus, other herpes simplex virus infection, and dry eye. The safety profile in children and adolescents through Week 16 was similar to that of adults with atopic dermatitis. In an open-label extension study, the long-term safety profile of DUPIXENT in adolescents and children observed through Week 52 was consistent with that seen in adults with atopic dermatitis.

DRUG INTERACTIONS: Avoid use of live vaccines in patients treated with DUPIXENT.

USE IN SPECIFIC POPULATIONS

  • Pregnancy: There is a pregnancy exposure registry that monitors pregnancy outcomes in women exposed to DUPIXENT during pregnancy. Healthcare providers and patients may call 1-877-311-8972 or go to https://mothertobaby.org/ongoing-study/dupixent/ to enroll in or obtain information about the registry. Available data from case reports and case series with DUPIXENT use in pregnant women have not identified a drug-associated risk of major birth defects, miscarriage or adverse maternal or fetal outcomes. Human IgG antibodies are known to cross the placental barrier; therefore, DUPIXENT may be transmitted from the mother to the developing fetus.
  • Lactation: There are no data on the presence of DUPIXENT in human milk, the effects on the breastfed infant, or the effects on milk production. Maternal IgG is known to be present in human milk. The developmental and health benefits of breastfeeding should be considered along with the mother’s clinical need for DUPIXENT and any potential adverse effects on the breastfed child from DUPIXENT or from the underlying maternal condition.

Please see accompanying full Prescribing Information.

Indication

DUPIXENT is indicated for the treatment of patients aged 6 years and older with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis whose disease is not adequately controlled with topical prescription therapies or when those therapies are not advisable. DUPIXENT can be used with or without topical corticosteroids.
