The drug was initially approved in 2017 and has since been launched in the United States as a treatment for adults with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis, as well as a drug for some asthma patients.

Sanofi engages in the research and development, manufacturing and marketing of pharmaceutical drugs principally in the prescription market, but the firm also develops over-the-counter medication. The company covers seven major therapeutic areas namely cardiovascular, central nervous system, diabetes, internal medicine, oncology, thrombosis and vaccines.

Whereas Regeneron is a biotechnology company founded in 1988, originally focused on neurotrophic factors and their regenerative capabilities (thus the name), it branched out into the study of both cytokine and tyrosine kinase receptors.
