Do you have atopic dermatitis?

The TEZEPELUMAB study: A clinical trial to assess a new drug for atopic dermatitis

he purpose of the study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the study drug tezepelumab alone, or in combination with a topical corticosteroid, in the treatment of moderate to severe atopic dermatitis. Atopic dermatitis is a chronic, inflammatory skin condition with symptoms including areas of dry, itching and reddened skin. This study will also assess the safety and effectiveness of different doses of tezepelumab.

Tezepelumab is an experimental treatment which means that it is not an approved treatment for moderate to severe atopic dermatitis in Australia. Medications, drugs and devices have to be approved for use by the Therapeutic Goods Administration in Australia.
