This educational activity is supported by an independent educational grant from Pfizer, Inc.
Steven Feldman, MD, PhD, and Jonathan Silverberg, MD, PhD, MPH, provide their clinical insights into the burden of disease experienced by persons with atopic dermatitis and strategies for management. They discuss how improved understanding of pathophysiologic mechanisms has led to the availability of new topical and systemic therapies that, when integrated with other therapies, can reduce patients’ disease burden. They also discuss 6 medications in late-stage development for atopic dermatitis.
This activity is intended for dermatologists, pediatric dermatologists, allergists, along with nurse practitioners and physician assistants within those specialties who manage patients with atopic dermatitis.
Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:
Recognize essential and important signs and symptoms that should be considered in the diagnosis of atopic dermatitis (AD)
Develop treatment plans that address both symptoms and patient concerns
Integrate newly-approved AD therapies into treatment plans
Describe emerging AD treatments in late-stage clinical development
