Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Efficacy of DNK333 in reduction in pruritus in atopic dermatitis patients, as measured by actigraphy and visual analogue scale (VAS) [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Evaluate the therapeutic benefit from the patient's perspective of DNK333 to reduce pruritus as assessed by the Patient Benefit Index for Pruritus (PBIfP) [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Efficacy of DNK333 to reduce dermatitis as measured by the atopic dermatitis score and the Eczema Severity Index (EASI) [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Safety and tolerability of DNK333 in atopic dermatitis patients [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • the plasma pharmacokinetics and skin exposure following treatment of atopic dermatitis patients with DNK333. [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Assess the health-related quality of life by using the Quality of Life for Atopic Dermatitis (QoLIAD) score. [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Compare the pharmacokinetics of DNK333 administered as an oral microemulsion drinking solution to a solid dispersion tablet in steady state. [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
