: Atopic dermatitis is a chronic inflammatory skin disorder associated with a heterogeneous presentation and considerable disease burden. Exploring atopic dermatitis treatment patterns and patient benefits could improve disease management and patients' quality of life. This study aimed to describe current and previous atopic dermatitis treatment patterns and patient benefits from those treatments to inform disease management. Data were collected in 10 countries. Adults (n = 1,988) with confirmed moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis completed a web-based cross-sectional survey. Most patients (86.6%) had body surface area involvement <10%, and therapies used were topical (69.7%), systemic (28.1%), and biologics (2.3%). Most flares were managed by topical monotherapies (73.4%), even in patients with body surface area involvement ≥10%. Treatment expectations were met only partially, or not at all, in 75% of patients. Those with body surface area involvement ≥10% reported lower treatment satisfaction. Overall, this study highlights the unmet medical needs in atopic dermatitis management.

Abstract

: Atopic dermatitis is a chronic inflammatory skin disorder associated with a heterogeneous presentation and considerable disease burden. Exploring atopic dermatitis treatment patterns and patient benefits could improve disease management and patients' quality of life. This study aimed to describe current and previous atopic dermatitis treatment patterns and patient benefits from those treatments to inform disease management. Data were collected in 10 countries. Adults (n = 1,988) with confirmed moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis completed a web-based cross-sectional survey. Most patients (86.6%) had body surface area involvement <10%, and therapies used were topical (69.7%), systemic (28.1%), and biologics (2.3%). Most flares were managed by topical monotherapies (73.4%), even in patients with body surface area involvement ≥10%. Treatment expectations were met only partially, or not at all, in 75% of patients. Those with body surface area involvement ≥10% reported lower treatment satisfaction. Overall, this study highlights the unmet medical needs in atopic dermatitis management.
