Evidences suggest that both DLB and RBD are possibly ...

It is the first biologic therapy to have been approved for the treatment of adult patients with moderate-to-severe AD in the EU and USA. In phase III t rials in adults with moderate-to-severe AD who were inadequately controlled with topical medications and/or systemic treatments, such as ciclosporin, or for whom these ther...
