Pfizer Inc. (PFE) said Wednesday that it saw positive top-line results from a Phase 3 pivotal study for its investigational oral Janus kinase 1 inhibitor, abrocitinib, in patients aged 12 and older with moderate to severe atopic dermatitis.

The pharmaceutical company said in a release that top-line results showed that by week 12, the percentage of patients achieving each co-primary efficacy endpoint and each key secondary endpoint with either dose of abrocitinib was statistically significantly higher than placebo.

Pfizer said the results demonstrate response to treatment for a statistically significant number of patients during the first two to four weeks following the first dose.

The company said that safety results showed that both doses of abrocitinib were well-tolerated and there were no unexpected safety events. The discontinuation rates due to an adverse event were low in each treatment arm compared to placebo.
