- The P-III AD Up study involves assessing Rinvoq (15/30mg) + TCS vs PBO + TCS in patients (aged≥12) with the mod. to sev. AD who are candidates for systemic treatment. Patients receiving PBO + TCS were switched to either upadacitinib (15/30mg) + TCS @16wks.
- Results: @16wks. EASI 75 (65%/77% vs 26%); vIGA-AD 0/1 (40%/59% vs 11%); Improvement in Worst Pruritus NRS≥4 (52%/64% vs 15%)’ high TCS-freedays
