Opzelura, already approved for atopic dermatitis, gives Incyte a second indication for its topical JAK inhibitor. It is the first treatment approved for vitiligo.
Incyte’s topical JAK inhibitor carries a class-wide severe safety warning and cautions against chronic use, but 52-week results could ease the way for the potential vitiligo indication.
Certain launch challenges aside, the early commercial metrics and physician feedback look encouraging for Incyte's recently-approved topical JAK Opzelura for eczema.
