Dupilumab for the Treatment of Chronic Spontaneous Urticaria in Patients Who Remain Symptomatic Despite the Use of H1 Antihistamine and Who Are naïve to, Intolerant of, or Incomplete Responders to Omalizumab (LIBERTY-CSU CUPID)


About the study

Primary Objective: To demonstrate the efficacy of dupilumab in study participants with CSU who remain symptomatic despite the use of H1 antihistamine (Study A and C: omalizumab naïve; Study B: omalizumab intolerant or incomplete responders) Secondary Objectives: To demonstrate the efficacy of dupilumab on urticaria activity composite endpoint and itch or hives, separately, at various timepoints To demonstrate the efficacy of dupilumab on angioedema To demonstrate the efficacy of dupilumab on urticaria control To demonstrate improvement in health-related quality of life and overall disease status and severity To evaluate the ability of dupilumab in reducing the proportion of patients who require treatment with oral corticosteroids (OCS) To evaluate safety outcome measures To evaluate immunogenicity of dupilumab

  3. Presence of skin morbidities other than CSU that may interfere with the assessment of the study outcomes
  4. Active atopic dermatitis
  5. Severe concomitant illness(es) that, in the investigator's judgment, would adversely affect the patient's participation in the study
  6. Active tuberculosis or non-tuberculous mycobacterial infection, or a history of incompletely treated tuberculosis unless documented adequately treated.
  7. Diagnosed active endoparasitic infections; suspected or high risk of endoparasitic infection

  10. Active malignancy or history of malignancy within 5 years before the baseline visit, except completely treated in situ carcinoma of the cervix, completely treated and resolved non-metastatic squamous or basal cell carcinoma of the skin
  11. History of systemic hypersensitivity or anaphylaxis to omalizumab or any biologic therapy, including any excipients
  12. Participation in prior dupilumab clinical study, or have been treated with commercially available dupilumab.
