About prurigo nodularis
Prurigo nodularis (PN) is a rare, potentially debilitating, chronic skin condition with thick skin nodules covering large body areas and associated intense unrelenting itch.10 While PN can occur at any age, it is most likely to affect people between the ages of 40 and 69, frequently leading to severe impairment in quality of life.11
The global prevalence of PN is unknown as there are no studies describing the epidemiology of the condition. In the U.S., the latest estimate is that PN affects 52.9 people in every 100,000. In the European context, rates of between 0.65 and 11.1 per 10,000 population have been reported. In addition to natural variation, this relatively wide range of estimates is partly due to differences in case definition and the representativeness of the study populations.12
Nemolizumab is a first-in-class humanized monoclonal antibody directed against the IL-31 receptor alpha that blocks signaling from IL-31.6 IL-31 plays a key role in multiple disease mechanisms in both atopic dermatitis and prurigo nodularis, a rare, potentially debilitating, chronic skin condition with thick skin nodules covering large body areas and associated severe pruritus (itching). With its unique role in directly stimulating sensory neurons related to itch and contributing to inflammation and barrier dysfunction, IL-31 is the bridge between the immune and nervous systems while directly acting on structural cells in the skin. Nemolizumab, initially developed by Chugai Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd., was subsequently licensed to Galderma in 2016 – worldwide except Japan and Taiwan. Nemolizumab is an investigational agent under clinical development for the treatment of atopic dermatitis and prurigo nodularis and its safety and efficacy have not been fully evaluated by any regulatory authority. Nemolizumab was granted Breakthrough Therapy Designation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in December 2019 for the treatment of pruritus associated with prurigo nodularis.
In the European Union, AKLIEF® (trifarotene 50 mcg/g cream) is indicated for the cutaneous treatment of acne vulgaris of the face and/or the trunk in patients from 12 years of age and older, when many comedones, papules and pustules are present. It is the only topical retinoid that specifically targets retinoic acid receptor gamma (RAR-γ), the most common RAR in the skin.13, 14 National marketing authorizations across concerned European member states will follow in 2020.
CETAPHIL was developed by a leading pharmacist more than 70 years ago as a gentle, yet powerful formula to clean without stripping and moisturize without clogging. CETAPHIL is the #1 dermatologist-recommended brand in Germany and the #1 doctor-recommended sensitive skincare brand in the U.S. and is now available in Switzerland. New additions to the brand are regularly developed with the help of leading global skincare experts, providing innovative skincare technologies for sensitive skin that help restore, protect, and maintain skin health every day.

Breaking the Silence in Osteoporosis20.10.2021 07:00:00 CEST | Press release
A new international survey of 1,008 women with osteoporosis from six countries, launched on World Osteoporosis Day, reveals that while more than two-thirds (67%) of women over the age of 55 mostly understand what osteoporosis is and the potential negative impact of future fractures, 19% felt poorly informed at the time of the diagnosis.1 This press release features multimedia.
