    Guy Shalom, Meir Babaev, Khalaf Kridin, Yochai Schonmann, Amir Horev, Jacob Dreiher, Michal Shani, Shmuel Tiosano, Shani Fisher, Doron Comaneshter, Arnon D. Cohen
    Defining the epidemiology and healthcare service utilization in relation to atopic dermatitis is warranted to allow the incorporation of newly introduced treatments for atopic dermatitis. In a large group of 116,816 patients with atopic dermatitis, the disease was associated with an increased burden of healthcare utilization in a dose-response manner according to disease severity. These data quantifies healthcare utilization by patients with AD and can facilitate improved incorporation of innovative treatments into the healthcare system.
