How Has EpiCeram Changed the Treatment of Atopic Dermatitis?

Results from clinical trials suggest that EpiCeram is an effective form of primary therapy for patients with mild, moderate and severe atopic dermatitis. As such, the use of other agent, should be restricted to short-term restitute only because of significant risk of short and long-term side-effects.

Physicians may want to consider a combination of EpiCeram with a mild- or mid-potency topical corticosteroids as initial therapy in patients with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis until initial control is achieved.1

TCS, topical corticosteroids; TIM, topical immunomodulators
