  Purpose

We propose an open, prospective, multi-center Phase III study to evaluate the diagnostic performance and safety of seven new T.R.U.E. Test allergens: Gold sodium thiosulfate, Hydrocortisone-17-butyrate, Bacitracin, Parthenolide, Methyldibromoglutaronitrile, Disperse blue 106, and Bronopol.Allergen performance and safety will be evaluated in adult patients with suspected contact dermatitis, and in adult patients with a known or suspected sensitization to at least one of the seven allergens.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The performance of each allergen will be evaluated based on: Calculating concordance/discordance between T.R.U.E. Test Panel 3.2 allergens and their corresponding petrolatum or aqueous-based allergens and calculated sensitivity and specificity. [ Time Frame: End of Study ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Evaluations will be based on: Frequency and characterization of late and/or persistent reactions, tape-induced irritation, incomplete panel adhesion, and subject-reported sensations of itching or burning and the frequency of adverse events. [ Time Frame: End of study ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Enrollment: 235
Study Start Date: April 2008
Study Completion Date: October 2009
Primary Completion Date: August 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Sensitives
Subjects with a clinical history and positive patch test (current or previous) to any of the seven allergens. Subjects must otherwise be healthy and fulfill entry criteria.
Biological: T.R.U.E. TEST® Skin Patch Test: Dose Response Allergens

Polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP; excipient 1) Hydrocortisone-17-butyrate, 0.020 mg/cm2 in PVP Hydroxypropylcellulose (HPC; excipient 2) MDBGN, 0.0055 mg/cm2 in PVP Bacitracin, 0.60 mg/cm2 in HPC Gold sodium thiosulfate, 0.075 mg/cm2 in HPC Parthenolide, 0.0030 mg/cm2 in PVP Disperse Blue 106, 0.050 mg/cm2 in PVP Bronopol, 0.25 mg/cm2 in PVP

Test patches, with allergens, are placed at day one and removed 48 hours later. The duration of the study lasts 21 days. However, the subject is only exposed to the study allergens for 48 hours.

Other Name: T.R.U.E. TEST® Skin Patch Test: Panel 3.2
Experimental: Consecutives
Subjects who are being seen for standard allergy patch testing, that are asked to participate in the study.

Other Name: T.R.U.E. TEST® Skin Patch Test: Panel 3.2

Detailed Description:

Primary endpoint:

The performance (efficacy) of each allergen will be evaluated in adult patients with suspected contact dermatitis, and in adult patients with a known or suspected sensitization to at least one of the seven allergens. Performance will be based on:

  • Calculated concordance/discordance between T.R.U.E. Test Panel 3.2 allergens and their corresponding petrolatum or aqueous-based allergens.
  • Calculated sensitivity and specificity for T.R.U.E. Test Panel 3.2 allergens.

Secondary endpoint:

To evaluate the safety of seven T.R.U.E. Test Panels 3.2 allergens (Gold sodium thiosulfate, Hydrocortisone-17-butyrate, Methyldibromoglutaronitrile, Bacitracin, Parthenolide, Disperse blue 106 and Bronopol) in adult subjects with suspected contact dermatitis ("consecutives"), and/or in adult subjects with a clinical history of contact dermatitis and a current or previous positive patch test to one (or more) of these 7 allergens ("sensitives"). Evaluations will be based on:

  • The frequency and characterization of late and/or persistent reactions, tape-induced irritation at the test site, incomplete panel adhesion, and subject-reported sensations of itching or burning during the test period.
  • The frequency of adverse events and serious adverse events.
