About brodalumab

Brodalumab is indicated for the treatment of moderate to severe plaque psoriasis in adults within the European Union who are candidates for systemic therapy.1 It is the first and only biologic treatment for psoriasis that selectively targets the interleukin-17 (IL-17) receptor subunit A.2,3 These receptors are the ones through which the IL-17 cytokines – a family of proteins involved in immune responses – signal, causing the inflammation associated with psoriasis.

LEO Pharma has a partnership agreement with AstraZeneca, granting LEO Pharma exclusive licence to develop and commercialise brodalumab in Europe. Outside of Europe, Valeant Pharmaceuticals has global commercial rights for brodalumab except in Japan and certain other Asian countries, where the rights are held by Kyowa Hakko Kirin Co. Ltd.

About calcipotriol/betamethasone dipropionate

The fixed-dose combination of calcipotriol and betamethasone is a well-established treatment option for psoriasis in several guidelines across Europe.4,5,6,7 The product is available in topical gel, ointment and foam spray formulations. Calcipotriol/betamethasone dipropionate is the first and only topical foam spray treatment for all severities of plaque psoriasis in patients who are 18 years or older,8 and was introduced in Europe and the United States in 2016 after a large clinical study program,9,10,11 with other markets beginning to launch this year.

About tralokinumab

Tralokinumab is a fully human, immunoglobulin (Ig)G4 monoclonal antibody (mAb) that specifically and directly blocks the type 2 cytokine IL-13 and its detrimental effects. IL-13 plays a central role in the pathophysiology of AD, including inflammation, epidermal barrier dysfunction, and itch. 12The importance of neutralizing IL-13-mediated inflammation, epidermal barrier dysfunction, and itch is supported by the recently published results of a 12-week phase 2b study in 204 adults with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis.13 Tralokinumab is an investigational agent under clinical development and its safety and efficacy have not been evaluated by any regulatory authority.
