Dupixent was approved in March 2017 for the treatment of adults with moderate to severe AD and received additional approvals for adolescents and pediatric patients with AD, in 2019 and 2020 respectively. Additionally, Dupixent received approval for moderate to severe Asthma in October 2018 for patients 12 years and above. The Dermatology and Respiratory indications serve as anchors for this product which is referred to as a “pipeline in a product”, due to the many indications that are approved or are being studied.
