Connect Biopharma: Phase 2b Data Shows Rapid and Sustained Improvement in Atopic Dermatitis

Global clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company, Connect Biopharma (Nasdaq: CNTB), has announced that post hocdata analysis from its Phase 2b CBP-201 global trial in moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis (AD) showed a rapid and sustained improvement in AD signs and symptoms.

Connect’s share price climbed 19% following the news this week.


  •  Researchers reported that CBP-201 demonstrated rapid improvement in AD as early as Week 2 and sustained at Week 16.
  • Improvement was noted across four body regions, the head and neck, trunk, upper limbs and lower limbs, compared to placebo.
  • The results were observed with dosing regimens of both 2- and 4-weeks.
  • In addition to overall AD improvement across all four body regions, researchers also observed improvement for each classification of AD symptoms: erythema, induration/papulation, lichenification and excoriation, within each body region.
  • AD signs and symptoms in the head and neck region are particularly difficult to control and greatly affect patient quality of life.
  • The data were presented as an ePoster and online oral presentation this week at the American Academy of Dermatology Annual Meeting in New Orleans.
