OBJECTIVE: TO EVALUATE THE EFFICACY AND SAFETY OF RINVOQ MONOTHERAPY FOR THE TREATMENT OF ADOLESCENT (12 years and older) AND ADULT SUBJECTS WITH MODERATE TO SEVERE AD WHO ARE CANDIDATES FOR SYSTEMIC THERAPY2,3

These studies were only vs placebo and were not designed to compare the RINVOQ 15 mg and 30 mg doses against each other

Adpated from Guttman-Yassky, et al.2

*TCS were permitted during the blinded extension period and were not counted as rescue therapy. 
30-day follow up.

Itch reduction (≥4 point improvement in Worst Pruritus NRS from baseline assessed in patients with Worst Pruritus NRS ≥4 at baseline) at Day 1 & 2 for RINVOQ 30 mg and 15 mg, respectively, and at Week 16 for both doses were ranked secondary endpoints.2,3
