AbbVie Dermatology: Let’s change lives
AbbVie is committed to the pursuit of innovation to give dermatology patients the opportunity to feel free in their own skin.
A Legacy of Innovation
A deep understanding of dermatology and immune-mediated disease has long been at the core of AbbVie innovation. After more than a decade of research, we’ve developed unique technologies to optimize therapeutics in the area of dermatology, and we’re focused on delivering treatments in areas of high unmet medical need and where current treatment options do not meet patient expectations.

This chronic disease of the immune system triggers skin inflammation and causes skin cells to be produced faster than normal, forming the thick, red, itchy, flaky patches known as plaques.
Atopic Dermatitis (AD)
A chronic inflammatory skin disease that is characterized by skin erosion, oozing and crusting, redness, intense itching and dry skin.
Hidradentis Suppurativa (HS)
A chronic, inflammatory disease that can be distinguished by lesions, nodules and abscesses on the skin, particularly where oil and sweat glands are located or where skin rubs together.
A type of inflammatory arthritis that triggers joint pain, stiffness and swelling. About 30 percent of people with psoriasis also develop psoriatic arthritis.
Leading the Way
Commitment to Patients
We have a bold vision for the future: one where we have an answer for even more patients. Years of clinical studies have revealed a greater need for medical solutions to accommodate a diverse community of patients.
The Road Ahead
Guided by real patient journeys, we’re investigating several immune-mediated skin diseases and continuing our commitment with long-term investments in research and development, delivering innovation in patient support, and providing high-quality education for patients and physicians.
Our pipeline currently features two late-stage investigational compounds for dermatology patients. One is a biologic that selectively blocks IL-23, a key protein linked to psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. The other, an oral JAK1-selective inhibitor, is being explored as a new treatment for patients with AD and psoriatic arthritis.
A cytokine that contributes to the induction and maintenance of the inflammatory immune response.
An enzyme partially responsible for signaling part of the immune system and is responsible for activation of immune cells involved in autoimmune disorders.
A key protein involved in skin inflammation which has been linked to an overactive immune system.
A protein that regulates the production of other key pro-inflammatory proteins.
