New Dupixent® (dupilumab) data in patients as young as 6 years old with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis to be presented at WCPD and EADV
- More than 30 presentations reinforce the role of Dupixent in targeting IL-4 and IL-13, key drivers of the type 2 inflammation underlying atopic dermatitis in children, adolescents, and adults
- Results provide insight into the clinical and real-world experience of Dupixent on key disease measures including itch, disease severity, sleep and anxiety
- Dupixent presentations include longest duration of data for any biologic medicine in adults with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis, with results up to 3.5 years
PARIS and TARRYTOWN, N.Y. – September 21, 2021 - New Dupixent® (dupilumab) analyses in patients as young as 6 years old with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis will be presented at the 14th World Congress of Pediatric Dermatology Annual Congress (WCPD) from September 22-25 and the 30th European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology Congress (EADV) from September 29-October 2.
“The extensive portfolio of Dupixent data being showcased at these global congresses addresses the impact of Dupixent on the signs, symptoms and quality of life in patients as young as six years old with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis and reinforces the need for studying the long-term safety and efficacy of treatments targeting type 2 inflammation,” said Naimish Patel, M.D. Head of Global Development in Immunology and Inflammation at Sanofi. “In addition, we look forward to presenting key findings from our global Atopic Dermatitis-GAP survey and Quality of Care Report, which demonstrate our commitment to disease education and fostering new conversations about best practices for patient care within the atopic dermatitis community”
Notable Dupixent presentations include long-term efficacy and safety data showing the impact of Dupixent on signs and symptoms of moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis in children, adolescents and adults. More than 30 presentations include Dupixent results on skin lesions, itch and skin infections as well as sleep and health-related quality of life for patients and their families, including in adults with a history of mental health disorders and in children with anxiety and depression. Real-world evidence will be also presented from observational registries and claims databases across multiple geographies.
Notable disease burden data to be presented at EADV include results from the Atopic Dermatitis Global Adolescent and Pediatric Survey on how patients, caregivers, and physicians view the full impact of moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis based on findings from more than 3,900 people across 13 countries. Data will also be shared from the Quality of Care in AD Initiative, which documents best practices from 32 atopic dermatitis centers across the world, focused on the value of patient education and communication.

Dupixent is a fully human monoclonal antibody that inhibits the signalling of the interleukin-4 (IL-4) and interleukin-13 (IL-13) pathways. Dupixent is not an immunosuppressant and does not require lab monitoring. IL-4 and IL-13 are key and central drivers of the type 2 inflammation that plays a major role in atopic dermatitis, asthma and chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyposis (CRSwNP).
Dupixent is currently approved in the U.S., Europe, Japan and other countries around the world for use in specific patients with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis, as well as certain patients with asthma or CRSwNP in different age populations. Dupixent is also approved in one or more of these indications in more than 60 countries around the world and more than 300,000 patients have been treated globally.
Dupilumab Development Program
Dupilumab is being jointly developed by Sanofi and Regeneron under a global collaboration agreement. To date, dupilumab has been studied across 60 clinical trials involving more than 10,000 patients with various chronic diseases driven in part by type 2 inflammation.
Sanofi and Regeneron are studying dupilumab in a broad range of diseases driven by type 2 inflammation or other allergic processes, including pediatric asthma (6 to 11 years of age, Phase 3), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease with evidence of type 2 inflammation (Phase 3), pediatric atopic dermatitis (6 months to 5 years of age, Phase 3), eosinophilic esophagitis (Phase 3), bullous pemphigoid (Phase 3), prurigo nodularis (Phase 3), chronic spontaneous urticaria (Phase 3), chronic inducible urticaria-cold (Phase 3), chronic rhinosinusitis without nasal polyposis (Phase 3), allergic fungal rhinosinusitis (Phase 3), allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (Phase 3) and peanut allergy (Phase 2). These potential uses of dupilumab are currently under clinical investigation, and the safety and efficacy in these conditions have not been fully evaluated by any regulatory authority.
Sanofi is dedicated to supporting people through their health challenges. We are a global biopharmaceutical company focused on human health. We prevent illness with vaccines, provide innovative treatments to fight pain and ease suffering. We stand by the few who suffer from rare diseases and the millions with long-term chronic conditions.
