This CME/CE program is derived from content presented at the Maui Derm for Dermatologists 2022 Annual Meeting. The expert faculty, led by Lawrence Eichenfield, MD, will highlight the use of Janus kinases (JAK) inhibitor therapeutics to improve outcomes in patients with atopic dermatitis. The faculty will begin with an overview of current clinical trial data, including new and emerging therapies utilizing JAK-1 inhibitors, for the treatment of atopic dermatitis. Following, the practical applications of JAK-1 inhibitor therapeutics, pertaining to vaccinations and mitigating risk, will be analyzed. The faculty will conclude with a series of challenging cases presentations for improving outcomes for patients with atopic dermatitis.
Dermatologists, and dermatology advanced practice providers (NPs and PAs) who are involved in the care and treatment of patients with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis
- Understand the disease burden and therapeutic targets, including the JAK-1 receptor, for moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis
- Review recent JAK-1 inhibitor clinical trial data for the management of adolescents and adults with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis
- Develop comprehensive treatment plans including a risk-benefit profile for JAK-1 receptor therapeutics and appropriate vaccinations to apply monoclonal antibody therapies to treat AD
