Atopic dermatitis carries a significant public health burden in terms of morbidity, health care utilization and costs, and its prevalence in children and adults is increasing. However, traditional approaches to management, such as topical agents and nonspecific immunosuppressants, are limited by poor efficacy, frequent adverse effects, and resultant nonadherence that have rendered patient outcomes largely suboptimal.

In this lecture, learn about recent insights gained into the diverse pathophysiology that contributes to the symptoms and progression of this disease, leading to a more individualized approach to care. With the first targeted biologic for atopic dermatitis reaching the market in 2017 and multiple additional agents under clinical investigation, the field is poised for a transformation toward individualized, targeted treatment. Designing a therapeutic approach based on the underlying pathophysiology of a given patient promises to better limit disease progression and improve patient quality of life.
