“We are encouraged by better US Dupixent growth, but recognize that the pediatric atopic dermatitis market will be the core growth driver, with approval expected around 2021. Also, while we understand that REGN and investors are focusing more on Dupixent’s growth than EYLEA’s, the lack of EYLEA guidance going forward is concerning. REGN cannot give guidance on Dupixent since Sanofi books the revenues, and EYLEA is still expected to be the core revenue driver for REGN.”,” the firm’s analyst wrote.
