The rheumatoid-arthritis drug baricitinib reduces symptoms of moderate to severe atopic dermatitis (AD) for at least 68 weeks, according to an extension study of two randomised controlled trials.

BREEZE-AD3 is an ongoing, double-blind extension of the earlier phase-3 BREEZE-AD1 and BREEZE-AD2 trials and is taking place at sites across Europe, Asia, Latin America, and Australia.
