Details and patient eligibility


The study aims to evaluate the efficacy, improvement from baseline in Eczema Area and Severity Index (EASI) score, of multiple intravenous (IV) doses of FB825 in subjects with atopic dermatitis

Full description

IgE plays an important role in mediating hypersensitivity reactions responsible for most of the allergic diseases, such as atopic dermatitis, asthma etc. which remain poorly controlled. FB825 blocks the biological pathway of IgE synthesis and thus can be used to treat IgE-mediated allergic diseases. FB825 was found to be safe when given IV repeat dose in toxicology study in monkey. No adverse effects of FB825 were observed in parameters included electrocardiograms for cardiovascular, ophthalmic examinations and other clinical, CNS and respiratory safety observations. The safety and tolerability of FB825 was demonstrated in the US phase I randomized, double-blind study with healthy subjects. Also, the FB825 was proved by in vivo study that it is able to block the biological pathway of IgE synthesis and thus can be used to treat IgE-mediated allergic diseases. Therefore, in this study, the effects of IgE in patients with atopic dermatitis receiving FB825 treatment will be investigated. The study will evaluate safety and efficacy in adults with atopic dermatitis.


99 patients




18 to 70 years old

Inclusion criteria

  1. The subject is male or female between 18 and 70 years of age.

  2. The subject has a physician-confirmed diagnosis of chronic atopic dermatitis based on 2 years history of symptoms defined by the Eichenfield revised criteria of Hannifin and Rajka.

  3. Eczema Area and Severity Index (EASI) score ≧16 at the screening and baseline (Day 1) visits.

  4. Validated Investigator Global Assessment for Atopic Dermatitis (vIGA-AD™) score ≧ 3 (5-point scale) at the screening and baseline (Day 1) visits.

  5. ≧10 % body surface area (BSA) of AD involvement at the screening and baseline (Day 1) visits.

    Note: BSA is measured as Part A (Extent) of SCORAD.

  6. Baseline pruritus numerical rating scale (NRS) average score for maximum itch intensity of ≧3, based on the average of daily pruritus NRS scores for maximum itch intensity reported during the 7 days prior to randomization.

  7. History of inadequate response to a stable (4 weeks) regimen of topical corticosteroids (TCS) or topical calcineurin inhibitors (TCI) as treatment for AD within 6 months before the screening visit. (The regimen of topical corticosteroids means medium to higher potency, applied for at least 4 weeks or for the maximum duration recommended by product prescribing information.) 7.1 Inadequate response is defined as failure to achieve and maintain remission or a low disease activity state (comparable to vIGA-AD 0=clear to 2=mild) 7.2 Subjects with systemic treatment for AD in the past 6 months were also considered as inadequate responders to topical treatments and were potentially eligible for treatment with FB825 after appropriate washout.

  8. Patients must be applying stable doses of an additive-free, basic bland emollient twice-daily for at least 1 week immediately before the baseline visit (Day 1).

    Note: See exclusion criterion #11 for limitations regarding emollients

  9. Female subjects of childbearing potential must use an acceptable method of birth control (i.e., diaphragm, intrauterine device, condom, hormonal contraceptives, or abstinence) throughout the study or be surgically sterile (i.e., hysterectomy, bilateral tubal ligation, or bilateral oophorectomy), or postmenopausal (defined as amenorrhea 12 consecutive months and documented serum follicle stimulating hormone level >40 mU/mL). All female subjects must have a negative serum pregnancy test at screening and baseline (Day 1) visits.

    Note: The subject must use the method of effective contraception during study period and in 16 weeks or 5 half-lives after the last dosing of FB825.

  10. The subject is able to provide written informed consent.

  11. The subject agrees to comply with all protocol requirements.

Exclusion criteria

  1. Female subjects who are pregnant or lactating.

  2. The subject has a positive test result for hepatitis B surface antigen, hepatitis B core antibody, hepatitis C virus antibody, or human immunodeficiency virus antibodies at screening. Having a history of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection.

  3. The subject has a history of drug abuse that would impair or risk the patients' full participation in the study, in the opinion of the investigator.

  4. The subject has a clinically significant, currently active or underlying gastrointestinal, cardiovascular, nervous system, psychiatric, metabolic, renal, hepatic, respiratory (with the exception of uncomplicated allergic rhinitis), inflammatory, immunological, endocrine, diabetes, or infectious disease and is ineligible to participate in the study as judged by the investigator.

  5. The subject has a clinically significant history, as determined by the investigator, of drug allergies or hypersensitivity such as, but not limited to, sulfonamides and penicillin, or a drug allergy witnessed in a previous study with experimental drugs.

  6. The subject has any history of a previous anaphylactic reaction.

  7. The subject has any condition that, in the opinion of the investigator, would compromise the study or the well-being of the subject or prevent the subject from meeting or performing study requirements.

  8. The subject has received TCS or TCI within 7 days before the baseline visit (Day 1).

  9. The subject has received any immunoglobulin products or blood products within 3 months of baseline visit (Day 1).

  10. The subject has received a biologic product (including investigational biologic product):

    10.1 Any cell-depleting agents, not only limited to rituximab, within 6 months of baseline visit (Day 1), or before the lymphocyte count returns to normal, whichever is longer.

    10.2 Other biologics such as dupilumab within 5 half-lives (if known) or within 16 weeks, whichever is longer, before the study treatment.

  11. Initiation of treatment of AD with prescription moisturizers or moisturizers containing additives such as ceramide, hyaluronic acid, urea, or filaggrin degradation products during the screening period (patients may continue using stable doses of such moisturizers if initiated before the screening visit)
