Biologic therapy for atopic dermatitis and allergic conditions represents a rapidly developing area of research development and clinical investigation in dermatology. Dupilumab, a biologic that blocks both interleukin (IL)-4 and IL-13 signaling, is the first biologic approved by the Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of atopic dermatitis. Omalizumab, which binds free immunoglobulin (Ig)E, was first used to treat asthma and was subsequently approved for patients with refractory chronic idiopathic urticaria. In this chapter, dupilumab and omalizumab and their applications within dermatology are reviewed in detail. This chapter also highlights several emerging biologic therapeutics within the field of dermatology.
