Lebrikizumab, a monoclonal antibody, interacts powerfully with IL-13 and purposefully forestalls the development of the IL-13Rα1/IL-4Rα heterodimer complex and subsequent signals, subsequently halting the biological impact of IL-13. This significant cytokine, IL-13, plays a central role in atopic dermatitis, instigating a type-2 inflammatory cycle in the skin, resulting in skin barrier malfunction, itching, skin thickening, and infection.
Lebrikizumab embodies a substantial advancement for patients suffering from moderate-to-extreme AD who have inadequate control with topical therapy, thanks to its exclusive mode of action, established short and long-term efficacy, and safety verified for up to 2 years. Additionally, it offers a monthly maintenance dose for all patients.
Following its approval by the EC, lebrikizumab provides another essential treatment alternative for individuals grappling with moderate-to-severe AD. "This regulatory achievement underscores Almirall’s devotion to evolving innovative therapies that can significantly enrich the lives of people afflicted with skin diseases," affirmed Dr. Volker Koscielny, Almirall's Chief Medical Officer.
Almirall possesses the licensing rights for the development and commercialization of lebrikizumab for various dermatological conditions, including atopic dermatitis, throughout Europe. Eli Lilly and Company retains exclusivity for the product's growth and dissemination in the United States as well as other nations excluding Europe. Further regulatory verdicts for lebrikizumab in moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis from additional European territories, including the UK and Switzerland, are anticipated by Almirall.
