DUPIXENT demonstrated a safety profile in clinical studies that was consistent in both adults and adolescents

  • DUPIXENT has a long-term safety and tolerability profile that has been investigated up to 3 years in clinical trials in adults1,2
  • The long-term safety profile seen in adults is similar to the safety profile of adolescents in a 16-week, Phase 3 trial1,3

Adverse reactions to DUPIXENT in interventional atopic dermatitis (AD) clinical trials in adults*1

  • The safety of DUPIXENT was evaluated in four randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled trials and one dose-ranging trial in adult patients with moderate-to-severe AD1
  • In these five trials, 1,689 subjects were treated with subcutaneous injections of DUPIXENT, with or without concomitant TCS1
  • In these five trials, a total of 305 patients were treated with DUPIXENT for at least 1 year1
  • DUPIXENT was monitored in adolescents with moderate-to-severe AD (12–17 years old) in a 16-week trial that had a similar safety profile to the adult trials1

  • The safety profile of DUPIXENT in adolescents was explored further for up to 1 year
    in which the results were similar to the 16-week adolescent trial1


2,677 adult moderate-to-severe AD patients investigated for up to 3 years with DUPIXENT in an open label extension (OLE) trial1,2
