AbbVie is committed to the pursuit of innovative, effective solutions for dermatology diseases with unmet needs.

Our Vision for the Future

Building on a strong foundation of historical success, we’re striving to uncover new opportunities to target immune-mediated inflammatory dermatological diseases at their source, revolutionizing treatment to free the world of debilitating skin conditions. 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.

Leading the Way

The Road Ahead

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 three immune-mediated dermatological conditions—searching relentlessly for the best path forward. Our commitment continues with long-term investments in developing label enhancements for approved products, innovation in patient support, and a focus on high-quality education for both patients and physicians.

New Pathways

New Pathways

Our pipeline currently features two late-stage investigational compounds for dermatology patients. One is a biologic that selectively blocks IL-23, an agent linked to psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. Another, an oral JAK1-selective inhibitor, is being explored as a new treatment for patients with atopic dermatitis and psoriatic arthritis.

Our Pathways

TNF- α

A cytokine that contributes to the induction and maintenance of the inflammatory immune response.
