Amber Specialty Pharmacy Selected to Dispense Pfizer’s CIBINQO™ for the Treatment of Atopic Dermatitis
OMAHA, Neb. (Mar. 9, 2022) – Amber Specialty Pharmacy announces today that they will begin dispensing CIBINQO™ (abrocitinib), indicated for the treatment of adults with refractory, moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis whose disease is not adequately controlled with other systemic drug products, including biologics, or when use of those therapies is inadvisable. CIBINQO™ is manufactured by Pfizer.
Atopic Dermatitis (AD) is a chronic inflammatory skin disease characterized by dry skin, intense itching and recurrent relapsing eczematous lesions with a heterogeneous clinical presentation. AD lesions are characterized by erythema (skin turning red or purple depending on normal skin color), induration (hardening)/papulation (formulation of papules), lichenification, oozing/crusting. AD affects up to 10% of adults worldwide.
