About this research study:
Researchers are studying how an FDA-approved medication (Dupixent) affects skin cells in struggling with moderate-to-severe eczema.
Eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis, affects over 31 million people which is approximately 10% of the population. The condition often times has a severe impact on people's lives. People suffering from eczema may have skin inflammation and dryness, itchiness, bumps, and scarring.

This research study being conducted by physicians at the University of California, San Francisco will investigate how the FDA-approved medication affects your skin cells. Taking part could help improve your eczema and inform how we care for people with eczema in the future.
