NEW YORK — There are now multiple target treatments to utilize in patients with atopic dermatitis, but there is still a very large unmet need for better treatment in this disease, according to Emma Guttman-Yassky, MD, PhD, a Sol and Clara Kest professor of dermatology at Ichan School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York.

“Two years ago, I would summarize my lecture in 5 minutes, now I have difficulty determining what not to include in my 20-minute talk,” she said. “Many are not aware that atopic dermatitis is the most common inflammatory skin disease in the US, impacting 7% of adults and up to 25% of children worldwide, and 20% to 30% will have moderate to severe disease.”
