  Purpose

To assess over a 25-week period the efficacy of hand-foot narrow-band ultraviolet B light versus focal 308-nm light treatment in inducing the return of pigment in vitiligo after skin minigraft transplants to the backs of the hands in patients with light brown to black skin. Subject will undergo treatment for 13 weeks.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percent repigmentation of individual surviving grafts, percent repigmentation of all surviving grafts per hand, and percent repigmentation of lesional skin with each light source. [ Time Frame: 25 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Time to initial 10% repigmentation per graft, time to initial 10% repigmentation per lesion, the physician global repigmentation assessment, and an assessment of the safety of each treatment. [ Time Frame: 25 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Detailed Description:

Prospective investigator-blinded study involving 25 adult male and female subjects with vitiligo on the backs of both hands. Punch minigrafting will be performed on both hands taking skin from the thighs and/or buttocks. Light treatments will be administered starting at week one after grafting. One hand will receive narrow-band ultraviolet B light and the other will receive focal 308-nm light treatments. Light treatments will be administered 3 times per week for 12 weeks. A long term follow-up visit will be completed at week 25. The investigator will evaluate the subjects at week 4, 7, 13 and 25 in addition to screening and baseline evaluations/procedures.
