Children aged ≥6 to <12 years with severe atopic dermatitis (AD) have limited treatment options. In a 16-week, randomized, placebo-controlled, phase III trial in children, dupilumab, a monoclonal antibody inhibiting interleukin (IL)-4/IL-13 signaling, significantly improved signs and symptoms with acceptable safety; longer-term safety and efficacy data are lacking.
