Purpose: Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a common inflammatory skin disorder that adversely affects most aspects of everyday life in majority of patients. It has a prevalence of up to 3-4% of adults and up to 25% among children. AD has a complex pathogenesis, characterized by: 1) immune activation with increased numbers of T-cells, dendritic cells (DCs), and increased expression of inflammatory molecules 2) marked epidermal hyperplasia in chronic diseased skin, and 3) defective barrier function with increased trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL) and decreased lipids, reflecting underlying alterations in keratinocyte differentiation.
AD is predominantly a Th2 (IL-4, IL-13, and IL-31) disease, and recently was also found to be a “Th22″ (IL-22) disease. ILV-094 is an anti IL-22 antibody and therefore should reverse the immune activation of AD. This study is being done to assess the safety, tolerability, clinical efficacy, and mechanism of action of ILV-094 in patients with AD.
