About The Research...

Eczema also known as atopic dermatitis is one of the most common types of skin condition and affects about 10% to 20% of the population, and up to 25% of children. Common features of this inflammatory skin condition include itching and dryness. Eczema often relapses, meaning symptoms will improve for a while but then return.

Many people with eczema may manage their condition and relieve their symptoms using moisturising treatments and drugs such as corticosteroid creams or tablets and phototherapy (treatment with light). However, for about one-fifth of people with moderate to severe forms of eczema these treatments are not as effective especially in the long term, and currently there is no cure for the condition.

At MAC Clinical Research we understand there is a need for new and improved treatments, and we are conducting a clinical trial to test a new treatment.

750 eligible participants worldwide will receive the study drug or matching placebo (a ‘dummy medication’ containing no active ingredient or drug) by subcutaneous injection (an injection under the skin). Participants will initially have a 66% (2 in 3) chance of receiving nemolizumab and a 33% (1 in 3) chance of receiving placebo. There will be up to 17 visits to clinic and the trial will last up to a max. 60 weeks.

Previous clinical studies of Nemolizumab on adults with eczema have shown some statistically significant improvements in scores that rate eczema severity and itch when compared to placebo. A full description of the study will be given before you decide to take part, both over the phone and during an appointment at a MAC clinic. This will include you receiving the full patient information sheet (PIS).


Eligible participants will be reimbursed for travel to all visits (up to a max. of £50 per visit) and will receive refreshments for visits lasting more than 3 hours.
