Cibinqo efficacy in combination with medicated topical therapy vs placebo and dupilumab1,2​​​​​​​


​​​​​​​This pivotal Phase III clinical trial evaluated the efficacy and safety of Cibinqo in combination with medicated topical therapy vs placebo in 838 patients with moderate-to-severe AD, with a direct head-to-head comparison with dupilumab as an active comparator for itch relief at Week 2.1,2

*Patients used non-medicated emollient twice daily, starting at least 7 days before randomisation and continued throughout the trial.
Patients used medicated topical therapy (once daily) such as low- or medium-potency topical corticosteroids, calcineurin inhibitors, or PDE4 inhibitors, starting on Day 1 and as per protocol guidance, to treat active lesions during the study. 

Co-primary endpoints:

  • EASI-75 response at Week 12 vs placebo (defined as a 75% improvement in EASI score from baseline)
  • ​​​​​​​IGA 0/1 response with ≥2-point improvement at Week 12 vs placebo

Secondary endpoints:

  • PP-NRS4 response of either dose of Cibinqo vs dupilumab and placebo at Week 2 (defined as an improvement of ≥4 points from baseline in the severity of PP-NRS)
  • ​​​​​​​IGA 0/1 response with ≥2-point improvement and EASI-75 response at Week 16 vs placebo
  • EASI-90 response at Week 12 vs placebo
  • Score on the Patient-Oriented eczema Measure (POEM; scores range from 0–28 with higher scores indicating greater severity)
  • Score on the Dermatology Life Quality Index (DLQI; scores range from 0–30 with higher scores indicating greater impairment)
  • Change in the subjective assessment of sleep loss on the SCOring Atopic Dermatitis (SCORAD; scores range from 0–103 with higher scores indicating greater severity) sleep loss subscale

​​​​​​​The primary analysis of efficacy was performed in the modified intention-to-treat-population, which included all the patients who had undergone randomisation and received at least 1 dose of a trial drug or placebo.

Rapid itch relief with Cibinqo 200 mg vs dupilumab at Week 21,2​​​​​​​

Cibinqo 200 mg was superior to dupilumab at Week 2 in the proportion of patients achieving PP-NRS4, with significantly higher itch response* seen as early as Day 4 after the first dose.1,2

  • 49.1% (111/226) of patients achieved PP-NRS4 with Cibinqo 200 mg at Week 2
