Dupixent’s recent performance

Sanofi (SNY) develops Dupixent in collaboration with Regeneron Pharmaceuticals (REGN). It’s currently approved for moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis in adults. The drug is undergoing multiple late-stage trials for various other indications, which, if approved, could expand Sanofi’s market opportunities and growth potential for Dupixent.

In the second quarter of 2018, Dupixent sales were 176 million euros. However, the company is recovering from the effect of stocking Dupixent in Q1 2018. Sanofi launched the drug in Japan in the second quarter and will continue with its phased launches in Europe throughout 2019.

Sanofi is extremely positive about Dupixent’s future potential and product differentiation.
