Will targeted therapies transform the treatment of atopic dermatitis?

New targeted treatments look set to transform the treatment of moderate to severe atopic dermatitis. As Dupixent (dupilumab; Regeneron/Sanofi) gains traction, older, more toxic immunosuppressant options will lose ground as treating physicians seek better efficacy and safety elsewhere. But as the market evolves, and more treatments are approved, clinical and commercial differentiation will become key. Key opinion leaders expect similar clinical profiles from tralokinumab (AstraZeneca/Leo Pharma) and lebrikizumab (Dermira), both anti-IL-13 monoclonal antibodies (mAbs). Moreover, other pipeline programmes, including mepolizumab (anti-IL-5; GSK) and nemolizumab (anti-IL-31; Galderma/Chugai) could potentially become niche options based on their respective mechanisms of action. Oral JAK inhibitors may also provide alternatives for treating atopic dermatitis.

Learn how KOLs see the market evolving, how current products can protect market share, and how developers can differentiate their pipeline therapies.

Twelve North American and European KOLs provide their insight on 2 marketed products, 11 pipeline programmes and 4 early-stage mechanisms of action.

Top Takeaways

Will traditional treatment options be side-lined by Dupixent (dupilumab; Sanofi/Regeneron) and other novel therapies? Find out how KOLs see the treatment paradigm for atopic dermatitis changing in the near-term as physicians look for greater efficacy and better safety.

Pfizer’s Eucrisa (crisaborole) has been launched in the US, but what do KOLs think about it? A welcome addition, say some KOLs, but what’s the overarching view of Eucrisa’s efficacy compared to more traditional treatments?

Are AstraZeneca/Leo Pharma’s tralokinumab and Dermira’s lebrikizumab sufficiently different to Dupixent and themselves to carve out a place in the treatment paradigm? Both agents target IL-13, Dupixent targets both IL-13 and IL-4. What do KOLs think about that, and do they have any reservations about clinical similarity?

Mepolizumab (anti-IL-5; GSK) and nemolizumab (anti-IL-31; Galderma/Chugai) target different cytokines, but which option is most appealing? Or will each of these treatment options only be able to carve out a small niche for themselves based on their respective mechanisms of action (MOA)?

Oral JAK inhibitors may provide alternatives for treating atopic dermatitis, but will safety concerns limit uptake? With several JAK inhibitors in development, R&D investment in this MOA is high. But do KOLs have any safety concerns? Or will the convenience of oral treatment be sufficient to support clinical adoption?

Will differentiation within the treatment landscape become increasingly challenging as the market grows? Several clinical and commercial tactics are available to companies in order to differentiate themselves. The question becomes, are these tactics enough? As physicians become more selective, and payers become less willing to pay, which tactics will become more influential in the future?

“There’s a long list [of factors that influence treatment choice]. A lot of it will depend on what they’ve been on before. Some of it’s going to be about severity, what their history is, patient preference, how old they are, what areas we’re going to be treating. So a long list of factors come into our choice. I will say that some of it’s going to be what I can get for the patient, because in the United States, access is an issue.” US Key Opinion Leader

“Provided that no other clinical side-effects pop up over time, and the conjunctivitis problems are not so severe, I could imagine that dupilumab might become a kind of blockbuster drug for the treatment of atopic dermatitis from the data which are available now.” European Key Opinion Leader
