Description:

(Atopic dermatitis (AD) is an increasingly prevalent chronic systemic inflammatory disease, with significant and often underappreciated impacts on quality of life. Patients with more severe forms of AD tend to not respond to first-line therapies and traditional systemic second-line treatments can cause significant adverse effects that preclude their long-term use. An improved understanding of disease etiology has led to the development of new therapies that target pathological pathways involved in AD, including the Janus kinase (JAK)/signal transducer and activator of transcription (STAT) signaling pathway. This webinar will review the clinical manifestations and assessment of AD and provide a practical approach to AD treatment with the newer targeted agents, particularly in individuals with more severe AD, for whom other systemic and non-targeted therapies are not effective. This program has been developed for US dermatology allied healthcare professionals (HCPs) and will include several interactive case study discussions.

Learning Objectives:

The learning objectives of this event are:

  • Describe the burden of AD, including clinical manifestations, associated disorders, and psychosocial impact
  • Describe the epidemiology of AD and disease risk factors
  • Describe the role of specific immunological pathways, such as JAK/STAT, in the pathogenesis of AD
  • Differentiate the mechanisms of emerging systemic therapies for AD, including JAK inhibitors
  • Evaluate the benefits and risks of JAK inhibitors and other emerging therapy classes in AD
  • Discuss clinical considerations associated with the potential implementation of emerging AD therapies into practice
