About tralokinumab
Tralokinumab is a fully human monoclonal antibody that specifically neutralizes the IL-13 cytokine,[i],[ii] a key driver of the underlying chronic inflammation in atopic dermatitis (AD). By specifically binding to the IL-13 cytokine with high affinity, tralokinumab prevents its interaction with the receptor and the subsequent downstream IL-13 signalling.1,2

U.S. FDA APPROVED INDICATION FOR ENSTILAR® (calcipotriene and betamethasone dipropionate) FOAM
Enstilar® (calcipotriene and betamethasone dipropionate) Foam is indicated for the topical treatment of plaque psoriasis in patients 12 years and older. Apply Enstilar Foam to affected areas once daily for up to 4 weeks. Discontinue use when control is achieved. Instruct patients not to use more than 60 grams every 4 days.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
For topical use only. Enstilar Foam is not for oral, ophthalmic or intravaginal use and should not be applied on the face, groin or axillae or if skin atrophy is present at the treatment site. Do not use with occlusive dressings. Patients should wash hands after application.

WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS

  • Flammability: The propellants in Enstilar Foam are flammable. Instruct patients to avoid fire, flame, and smoking during and immediately followingapplication.
  • Hypercalcemia and Hypercalciuria: Hypercalcemia and hypercalciuria have been reported. If either occurs, discontinue until parameters of calcium metabolismnormalize.
  • Effects on Endocrine System: Can cause reversible hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis suppression with the potential for glucocorticosteroid insufficiency duringand after withdrawal of treatment. Risk factors include the use of high-potency topical corticosteroid, use over a large surface area or to areas under occlusion, prolonged use, altered skin barrier, liver failure, and young age. Modify use should HPA axis suppression develop.

Cushing’s syndrome, hyperglycemia and glucosuria may occur due to the systemic effects of the topical corticosteroid.

Pediatric patients may be more susceptible to systemic toxicity due to their larger skin surface to body mass ratios.

  • Allergic Contact Dermatitis: Allergic contact dermatitis has been observed withtopical calcipotriene and topicalcorticosteroids.
  • Ophthalmic Adverse Reactions: May increase the risk of posterior subcapsularcataracts and glaucoma. Avoid contact of Enstilar Foam with eyes. Enstilar

Foam may cause eye irritation. Advise patients to report any visual symptoms and consider referral to an ophthalmologist forevaluation.


ADVERSE REACTIONS

  • Adverse reactions reported in <1% of adult subjects included: application site irritation, application site pruritus, folliculitis, skin hypopigmentation, hypercalcemia, urticaria, and exacerbation of psoriasis.
  • Adverse reactions reported in <1% of pediatric subjects (12-17 years of age) were acne, erythema, application site pain, and skin reactions.


USE IN SPECIFIC POPULATIONS

Pregnancy: Advise pregnant women that Enstilar Foam may increase the potential risk of having a low birth weight infant and to use Enstilar Foam on the smallest area of skin and for the shortest duration possible.

Lactation: No data are available regarding the presence of topically administered calcipotriene and betamethasone dipropionate in human milk. Use Enstilar Foam on the smallest area of skin and for the shortest duration possible while breastfeeding. Advise breastfeeding women not to apply Enstilar Foam directly to the nipple and areola to avoid direct infant exposure.

Pediatric Use: The safety and effectiveness of Enstilar Foam in pediatric patients less than 12 years of age have not been established. Pediatric patients may be more susceptible to systemic toxicity, HPA axis suppression, and adrenal insufficiency due to their larger skin surface to body mass ratios.

You are encouraged to report side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA. Visit MedWatch: The FDA Safety Information and Adverse Event Reporting Program or call 1-800-FDA-1088.

You may also report side effects to LEO Pharma Inc. at 1-877-494-4536, option 1, or email usdrugsafety@leo-pharma.com.

U.S. FDA APPROVED INDICATION FOR PICATO® (INGENOL MEBUTATE) GEL
Picato® (ingenol mebutate) gel is indicated for the topical treatment of actinic keratosis. For treatment on the face or scalp, Picato gel 0.015% should be applied to the affected area once daily for 3 consecutive days. For treatment on the trunk or extremities, Picato gel 0.05% should be applied to the affected area once daily for 2 consecutive days.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

CONTRAINDICATION
Picato gel is contraindicated in patients with known hypersensitivity to ingenol mebutate or any component of the formulation. Anaphylaxis, as well as allergic reactions leading to hospitalization have been reported in postmarketing use of Picato gel.

For topical use only. Picato gel is not for oral, ophthalmic or intravaginal use. Avoid transfer of Picato gel to periocular area or application near and around the mouth and lips. For application of up to one contiguous skin area of approximately 25 cm2 (5 cm x 5 cm) using one unit dose tube. Patients should wash hands well immediately after application.


WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS

  • Ophthalmic Adverse Reactions: Eye disorders, including severe eye pain, chemical conjunctivitis, corneal burn, eyelid edema, eyelid ptosis, periorbital edema can occur after exposure. If accidental exposure occurs, the area should be flushed with water and the patient should seek medical care as soon as possible.
  • Hypersensitivity Reactions: Hypersensitivity reactions, including anaphylaxis and allergic contact dermatitis, have been reported postmarketing. If anaphylactic or other clinically significant hypersensitivity reactions occur, discontinue Picato gel immediately and institute appropriate medical therapy.
  • Local Skin Reactions: Severe skin reactions in the treated area, including erythema, flaking/scaling, crusting, swelling, vesiculation/pustulation, and erosion/ulceration can occur after topical application of Picato gel. Administration of Picato gel is not recommended until the skin is healed from any previous drug or surgical treatment.

 

ADVERSE REACTIONS

  • The most common adverse reactions observed in clinical trials with use of Picato 0.015% on the face and scalp (≥2%) are local skin reactions (94%), application site pain (15%), application site pruritus (8%), application site infection (3%), periorbital edema (3%), and headache (2%).
  • The most common adverse reactions observed in clinical trials with use of Picato 0.05% on the trunk and extremities (≥2%) are local skin reactions (92%), application site pruritus (8%), application site irritation (4%), nasopharyngitis (2%), and application site pain (2%).
  • In post approval use of Picato gel, 0.015% and 0.05%, the following adverse reactions have been identified: hypersensitivity, allergic contact dermatitis, application site pigmentation changes, application site scarring, herpes zoster, chemical conjunctivitis, corneal burn, and Stevens-Johnson Syndrome. Because these reactions are reported voluntarily from a population of uncertain size, it is not always possible to reliably estimate their frequency or establish a causal relationship to drug exposure.


USE IN SPECIFIC POPULATIONS

Pregnancy: There are no available data on Picato gel use in pregnant women to evaluate a drug-associated risk of major birth defects, miscarriage, or adverse maternal or fetal outcomes.

Lactation: There are no data on the presence of ingenol mebutate in human or animal milk, the effects on the breastfed infant or the effects on milk production. Advise breastfeeding women to avoid accidental transfer of Picato gel to the nipple and areola area to prevent direct infant exposure.

Pediatric Use: The safety and effectiveness of Picato gel for actinic keratosis in patients less than 18 years of age have not been established.

You are encouraged to report side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA. Visit MedWatch: The FDA Safety Information and Adverse Event Reporting Program or call 1-800-FDA-1088.
