Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Incidents of treatment-emergent adverse events (TEAEs) during Part A [ Time Frame: From Baseline up to the End of Study Visit (Week 12) ]
    An Adverse Event (AE) is any untoward medical occurrence in a patient or clinical investigation subject administered a pharmaceutical product, which does not necessarily have a causal relationship with this treatment. An AE could therefore be any unfavorable and unintended sign, symptom, or disease temporally associated with the use of a medicinal (investigational) product, whether or not related to the medicinal (investigational) product.

  2. Incidents of treatment-emergent serious adverse events (TESAEs) during Part A [ Time Frame: From Baseline up to the End of Study Visit (Week 12) ]

    A Serious Adverse Event (SAE) is any untoward medical occurrence that at any dose:

    • Results in death
    • Is life-threatening
    • Requires inpatient hospitalisation or prolongation of existing hospitalisation
    • Results in persistent or significant disability/incapacity, or
    • Is a congenital anomaly/birth defect
    • Other important medical events which based on medical or scientific judgement may jeopardize the patients, or may require medical or surgical intervention to prevent any of the above

  3. Incidents of TEAEs during Part B [ Time Frame: From Baseline up to the End of Study Visit (Week 18) ]
    An Adverse Event (AE) is any untoward medical occurrence in a patient or clinical investigation subject administered a pharmaceutical product, which does not necessarily have a causal relationship with this treatment. An AE could therefore be any unfavorable and unintended sign, symptom, or disease temporally associated with the use of a medicinal (investigational) product, whether or not related to the medicinal (investigational) product.

  4. Incidents of TESAEs during Part B [ Time Frame: From Baseline up to the End of Study Visit (Week 18) ]

    A Serious Adverse Event (SAE) is any untoward medical occurrence that at any dose:

    • Results in death
    • Is life-threatening
    • Requires inpatient hospitalisation or prolongation of existing hospitalisation
    • Results in persistent or significant disability/incapacity, or
    • Is a congenital anomaly/birth defect
    • Other important medical events which based on medical or scientific judgement may jeopardize the patients, or may require medical or surgical intervention to prevent any of the above

  5. ≥75% improvement vs Baseline in Eczema Area and Severity Index (EASI75) score during Part B [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 12 ]

    The Eczema Area and Severity Index (EASI) is a validated scoring system that grades the physical signs of atopic dermatitis/eczema.

    A participant's EASI is scored through evaluation of 4 body regions: Head and neck; Trunk; Upper extremities; Lower extremities

    The severity of disease is evaluated by assessing each of 4 clinical signs for each area:

    Erythema; Edema/papulation; Excoriation; Lichenification The severity of each clinical sign is scored as: 0=None, 1=Mild, 2=Moderate, 3=Severe.



Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Cmax from Baseline through the End of Study (EoT) Visit of Part A [ Time Frame: From Baseline through the End Of Study Visit (Week 12) ]
    Cmax: Maximum observed serum concentration

  2. Tmax from Baseline through the End of Study (EoT) Visit of Part A [ Time Frame: From Baseline through the End of Study Visit (Week 12) ]
    tmax: Time to maximum observed serum concentration

  3. AUC(0-t) from Baseline through the End of Study (EoT) Visit of Part A [ Time Frame: From Baseline through the End of Study Visit (Week 12) ]
    AUC(0-t): Area under the serum concentration-time curve from time zero to time t

  4. AUC from Baseline through the End of Study (EoT) Visit of Part A [ Time Frame: From Baseline through the End of Study Visit (Week 12) ]
    AUC: Area under the serum concentration-time curve from time 0 to last observed quantifiable concentration

  5. F% from Baseline through the End of Study (EoT) Visit of Part A [ Time Frame: From Baseline through the End of Study Visit (Week 12) ]
    F%= Bioavailability of subcutaneous route

  6. Percent change from Baseline in the Eczema Area and Severity Index (EASI) score at Week 12 of Part B [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 12 ]

    The severity of disease is evaluated by assessing each of 4 clinical signs for each area:

    Erythema; Edema/papulation; Excoriation; Lichenification The severity of each clinical sign is scored as: 0=None, 1=Mild, 2=Moderate, 3=Severe.

Individual Participant Data (IPD) Sharing Statement:
Plan to Share IPD: Yes
Plan Description: Data from this trial may be requested by qualified researchers six months after product approval in the US and/or Europe, or global development is discontinued, and 18 months after trial completion. Investigators may request access to anonymized individual patient-level data and redacted trial documents which may include: analysis-ready datasets, study protocol, annotated case report form, statistical analysis plan, dataset specifications, and clinical study report. Prior to use of the data, proposals need to be approved by an independent review panel at www.Vivli.org and a signed data sharing agreement will need to be executed. All documents are available in English only, for a prespecified time, typically 12 months, on a password protected portal. This plan may change if the risk of re-identifying trial participants is determined to be too high after the trial is completed; in this case and to protect participants, individual patient-level data would not be made available.
