Pfizer Continues Positive Data Readouts For JAK Inhibitor Abrocitinib In Eczema
A second Phase III JADE study showed statistically significant skin clearance and reduced pruritus in atopic dermatitis, although safety is harder to evaluate for now. A filing planned for 2020 will include results from a cross-study comparison evaluating abrocitinib versus Dupixent.

Pfizer’s next-generation JAK1 inhibitor, abrocitinib, continues to show beneficial effects in atopic dermatitis (eczema), in the JADE COMPARE study, comparable to the positive control dupilumab and, in the case of itch, with a faster onset at the higher dose.
The first detailed Phase III results for the company's next-generation oral JAK inhibitor abrocitinib appear to show efficacy on par or better than data from Sanofi/Regeneron's Dupixent and may give Lilly's Olumiant a run for its money in AD.
Pfizer follows Lilly as the second company to report positive top-line Phase III results in AD for a JAK inhibitor. Safety is a key concern for the class, but Pfizer did not provide any details about abrocitinib's side effects.
