See arm/group description
- Change in Investigator's Global Assessment (IGA) score [ Time Frame: week 0, week 6, week 12 ]The investigator's global assessment is a physician-reported global assessment of disease activity (range 0-4) with 0 being clear and 4 being severe
- Change in Body Surface Area (BSA) [ Time Frame: week 0, week 6, week 12 ]The body surface area is a physician-reported measure of the amount of disease involvement. The patient's palm size approximates 1% of body surface area involvement.
- Change in Eczema Area and Severity Index (EASI) score [ Time Frame: week 0, week 6, week 12 ]The eczema-area-and-severity-index score is a composite score of disease severity and extent of disease distribution. It was initially developed for evaluation of eczema. Disease severity (range 0-3; 0 being no disease and 3 being severe disease) is a measure of redness, thickness/induration, scratching, and lichenification. Each characterization is measured separately for body regions (head and neck, trunk, upper extremities, and lower extremities) to calculate a regional score. The total score is a sum of the four body regions (range 0-72).
- Change in Numerical Rating Scale (NRS) itch [ Time Frame: week 0, week 6, week 12 ]The numerical rating scale for itch is a patient-reported measure of itch (range 0-10) with 0 being no itch and 10 being the worst imaginable itch.
- Change in Dermatology Life Quality Index (DLQI) [ Time Frame: week 0, week 6, week 12 ]The Dermatology Life Quality Index is a 10-question, patient-reported instrument to assess impact of skin diseases on patient quality of life.
- Change in SLEEPY-Q (Sleep Questionnaire) score [ Time Frame: week 0, week 6, week 12 ]The Sleepy-Q is a patient-derived, patient-reported sleep questionnaire for patients with chronic inflammatory dermatoses that consists of 28 individual questions. It assesses four dimensions of sleep in patients with inflammatory skin conditions: sleep disturbance (overall score 0-40, 0 being "no sleep disturbance" and 40 being "severe sleep disturbance"), causes of sleep disturbance related to dermatitis (binary, yes/no), causes of sleep disturbance unrelated to dermatitis (binary, yes/no), and impairment related to sleep disturbance (two subscales including Life Impairment Score = overall 0-40, being 0 "no life impairment" and 40 "severe life impairment" and Dermatitis Impairment Score = overall 0-30, being 0 "no impairment" and 30 "severe impairment." The total impairment related to sleep disturbance is scored overall 0-70 after summing of the two subscales).
- Skin Samples [ Time Frame: week0+72-120 hours and week 12+72-120 hours ]Inflammatory markers (Th1, Th2, Th17, Th22 immune pathways) in the skin of patients will be evaluated before and after dupilumab.
- Blood Samples [ Time Frame: week 0, week0+72-120 hours, week 12 and week 12+72-120 hours ]Inflammatory markers (Th1, Th2, Th17, Th22 immune pathways) in the blood of patients will be evaluated before and after dupilumab.
