Detailed Description:

This study includes a 35-day screening period, a 16-week double-blind period, a blinded extension period up to Week 260, and a 30-day follow-up visit. Participants who meet eligibility criteria in the Main Study will be randomly assigned in a 1:1:1 ratio to receive upadacitinib 15 mg, upadacitinib 30 mg, or placebo once daily, in combination with topical corticosteroids.

Upon completion of enrollment of 810 participants in the Main Study, a supplemental study will continue to enroll adolescent participants (Adolescent Sub-study) until a total of 180 adolescent participants are enrolled in the overall study (Main Study + Adolescent Sub-study).

Randomization for the Main Study will be stratified by Baseline disease severity (validated Investigator Global Assessment Scale for Atopic Dermatitis [vIGA-AD] score of moderate [3] versus severe [4]), by geographic region (US/Puerto Rico/Canada, Japan, China, and Other), and by age (adolescent [ages 12 to 17] versus adult [ages 18 to 75]). The separate randomization for the Adolescent Sub-study will be stratified by Baseline disease severity (moderate [vIGA-AD 3] versus severe [vIGA-AD 4]) and by geographic region (US/Puerto Rico/Canada and Other).

At Week 16 of both the Main Study and the Adolescent Sub-study, participants in the placebo group will be re-randomized in a 1:1 ratio to receive daily oral doses of upadacitinib 30 mg or upadacitinib 15 mg in the blinded extension period, and participants originally randomized to upadacitinib will continue upadacitinib in the extension period at the same dose. For the Main Study, the re-randomization will be stratified by Eczema Area and Severity Index (EASI) 50 responder status (Yes/No), by geographic region (US/Puerto Rico/Canada, Japan, China, and Other) and by age (adolescent [ages 12 to 17] versus adult [ages 18 to 75]). For the Adolescent Sub-study, the re-randomization will be stratified by EASI 50 responder (Yes/No) and by geographic region (US/Puerto Rico/Canada and Other).

Starting at Week 4, rescue treatment for AD may be provided at the discretion of the investigator if medically necessary The Primary Analysis for the Main Study will be conducted after all ongoing participants have completed Week 16. In addition, a Primary Analysis for the adolescent population (including the adolescent participants from the Main Study and the Adolescent Sub-study) will be conducted after all ongoing adolescent participants have completed Week 16.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Main Study: Percentage of Participants Achieving at Least a 75% Reduction in Eczema Area and Severity Index Score (EASI 75) From Baseline at Week 16 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 16 ]

    EASI is a tool used to measure the extent (area) and severity of atopic eczema based on assessments of the head/neck, trunk, upper limbs and lower limbs. For each region the area score is recorded as the percentage of skin affected by eczema. For each region, the severity score is calculated as the sum of the intensity scores (scored as none [0], mild [1], moderate [2], or severe [3]) for redness (erythema, inflammation), thickness (induration, papulation, swelling - acute eczema), scratching (excoriation), and lichenification (lined skin, prurigo nodules - chronic eczema).

    The total EASI score for each region is calculated by multiplying the severity score by the area score, with adjustment for the proportion of the body region to the whole body. The final EASI score is the sum of the 4 region scores and ranges from 0 to 72 where higher scores represent worse disease.


  2. Main Study: Percentage of Participants Achieving Validated Investigator Global Assessment for Atopic Dermatitis (vIGA-AD) of 0 or 1 With a Reduction From Baseline of ≥ 2 Points at Week 16 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 16 ]

    The vIGA-AD is a validated assessment instrument to rate the severity of atopic dermatitis globally, based on the following scale:

    • 0 - Clear: No inflammatory signs of AD;
    • 1 - Almost clear: Barely perceptible erythema, induration/papulation and/or lichenification;
    • 2 - Mild: Slight but definite erythema, induration/papulation and/or minimal lichenification. No oozing or crusting;
    • 3 - Moderate: Clearly perceptible erythema, induration/papulation and/or lichenification, oozing or crusting may be present;
    • 4 - Severe: Marked erythema, induration/papulation and/or lichenification; Oozing or crusting may be present.
