Outcome Measures

Primary Outcome Measures

  1. IGA Success, defined as a vIGA-AD score of ‘clear’ or ‘almost clear’ PLUS a 2-grade improvement from Baseline at Week 4. [ Time Frame: Week 4 ]The vIGA-AD is a static evaluation of qualitative overall AD severity. This global assessment scale is an ordinal scale with five severity grades (reported only in integers of 0 to 4 where 0 is clear).

Secondary Outcome Measures

  1. Subjects with a vIGA-AD score of ‘Moderate’ at randomization, vIGA-AD Success at Week 4 [¬†Time¬†Frame:¬†Week 4¬†]
    IGA Success, defined as a vIGA-AD score of ‘clear’ or ‘almost clear’ PLUS a 2-grade improvement from Baseline. The vIGA-AD is a static evaluation of qualitative overall AD severity. This global assessment scale is an ordinal scale with five severity grades (reported only in integers of 0 to 4 where 0 is clear).
  2. In subjects with baseline WI-NRS ‚Č• 4, achievement of a 4 point reduction in the WI-NRS at Week 4 [¬†Time¬†Frame:¬†Week 4¬†]
    WI-NRS is a subject-reported severity of itch at its highest intensity during the previous 24-hour period. The scale is from ‘0 to 10’ (“no itch” to “worst imaginable itch”).
  3. In subjects with baseline WI-NRS ‚Č• 4, achievement of a 4 point reduction in the WI-NRS at Week 2 [¬†Time¬†Frame:¬†Week 2¬†]
    WI-NRS is a subject-reported severity of itch at its highest intensity during the previous 24-hour period. The scale is from ‘0 to 10’ (“no itch” to “worst imaginable itch”).
  4. In subjects with baseline WI-NRS ‚Č• 4, achievement of a 4 point reduction in the WI-NRS at Week 1 [¬†Time¬†Frame:¬†Week 1¬†]
    WI-NRS is a subject-reported severity of itch at its highest intensity during the previous 24-hour period. The scale is from ‘0 to 10’ (“no itch” to “worst imaginable itch”).
  5. Achievement of at least a 75% (percent) reduction in the Eczema Area and Severity Index (EASI-75) at Week 4 [ Time Frame: Week 4 ]
    EASI combines the assessment of the severity of lesions and the area affected into a single total score in the range 0 (no disease) to 72 (maximal disease). To calculate the EASI, the sum of the severity rating (0 to 3 with 3 being the most severe) for four clinical signs are multiplied with the numerical value of the area affected and with the percentage of the four body areas.
  6. vIGA-AD of ‘clear’ or ‘almost clear’ at Week 4 [¬†Time¬†Frame:¬†Week 4¬†]
    The vIGA-AD is a static evaluation of qualitative overall AD severity. This global assessment scale is an ordinal scale with five severity grades (reported only in integers of 0 to 4 where 0 is clear).
  7. vIGA-AD success at Week 2 [ Time Frame: Week 2 ]
    The vIGA-AD is a static evaluation of qualitative overall AD severity. This global assessment scale is an ordinal scale with five severity grades (reported only in integers of 0 to 4 where 0 is clear).
  8. vIGA-AD success at Week 1 [ Time Frame: Week 1 ]
    The vIGA-AD is a static evaluation of qualitative overall AD severity. This global assessment scale is an ordinal scale with five severity grades (reported only in integers of 0 to 4 where 0 is clear).
  9. vIGA-AD of ‘clear’ or ‘almost clear’ at Week 2 [¬†Time¬†Frame:¬†Week 2¬†]
    The vIGA-AD is a static evaluation of qualitative overall AD severity. This global assessment scale is an ordinal scale with five severity grades (reported only in integers of 0 to 4 where 0 is clear).
  10. vIGA-AD of ‘clear’ or ‘almost clear’ at Week 1 [¬†Time¬†Frame:¬†Week 1¬†]
    The vIGA-AD is a static evaluation of qualitative overall AD severity. This global assessment scale is an ordinal scale with five severity grades (reported only in integers of 0 to 4 where 0 is clear).

In addition, sexually active FOCBP must agree to use at least one form of a highly effective or barrier method of contraception throughout the trial.
  • In good health as judged by the Investigator.
  • Subjects considered reliable and capable of adhering to the Protocol and visit schedule, according to the judgment of the Investigator.

Exclusion Criteria
