Research Toward a Better Quality of Life

The International Eczema Council (IEC) advocates for research funding to support initiatives that provide a greater understanding of atopic dermatitis and the development of new or alternative treatments. The principal objective is to aid medical professionals to deliver the best possible information and treatments to their patients.

Drug & Alternative Treatment Development

New systemic (biologic and oral) and topical treatments for atopic dermatitis are currently in development. The IEC actively supports this development and organizes educational events for healthcare providers and patients to understand unmet needs, disease mechanisms, and ultimately how new treatments will benefit atopic dermatitis patients worldwide.
