hase 2b studies in both asthma and atopic dermatitis shortly."

These data will be presented by Dr. Sally Wenzel this morning at the American Thoracic Society 2013 International Conference in a presentation entitled, "Efficacy and safety of SAR231893/REGN668 in patients with moderate-to-severe, persistent asthma and elevated eosinophil levels."

About IL-4R and the IL-4/IL-13 Pathway Atopic dermatitis and some types of asthma are characterized by the induction of a specific type of an immune response that is driven by a subset of immune cells called Type 2 helper T cells, or Th2 cells.  IL-4 and IL-13 are key cytokines that are required for the initiation and maintenance of this Th2 immune response.  IL-4 and IL-13 signaling occurs through Type I and II IL-4 receptors (IL-4 through both receptors and IL-13 through Type II receptors), which both contain a common IL-4R alpha subunit.

About Dupilumab (SAR231893/REGN668)Dupilumab is a fully human monoclonal antibody directed against IL-4R alpha and is administered via subcutaneous injection.  By blocking IL-4R alpha dupilumab modulates signaling of both IL-4 and IL-13, drivers of a Th2 immune response.  Dupilumab was created using Regeneron's pioneering VelocImmune® technology and is being co-developed with Sanofi.  Dupilumab is currently being studied in both atopic dermatitis and asthma.

About AsthmaAsthma is a chronic inflammatory disease of the airways characterized by airway sensitivity to environmental and biologic factors such as dust, chemicals, smoke, allergens, and viral infections leading to an acute and chronic narrowing of the airway and increased mucus production.  Patients with asthma can experience wheezing, shortness of breath, cough and chest tightness, and in severe cases, these symptoms can be life-threatening.  For most asthma patients, currently available treatments can control the disease.
