Sanofi and Regeneron receive EU approval for Dupixient in atopic dermatitis

28th September 2017

Sanofi and Regeneron have received approval from the European Commission for their drug Dupixent as a treatment for atopic dermatitis.

The European Commission has granted marketing authorisation for Dupixent to be used as a treatment for adults with moderate to severe atopic dermatitis who are candidates for systemic therapy.

This human monoclonal antibody therapy is designed to specifically inhibit overactive signalling of two key proteins, IL-4 and IL-13, both major drivers of the persistent underlying inflammation in atopic dermatitis. It comes in a prefilled syringe and can be self-administered by a patient as a subcutaneous injection.

Dupixient was able to demonstrate its safety and efficacy in the LIBERTY AD clinical trial programme, which included nearly 3,000 patients.

Dr Elias Zerhouni, president for global research and development at Sanofi, said: "We are now focused on quickly making this important new treatment option available to people across Europe who live with this systemic disease."
