  Purpose

Atopic dermatitis is one of the most frequent skin diseases. The disease is often worst during winter months when the skin is drier. Mild to moderate cases of atopic dermatitis are often controlled by a moisturizer alone. The use of moisturizers has been shown to have beneficial effects on atopic dermatitis. It can break the dry skin cycle by hydrating the upper layer of the skin which may prevent the recurrence of the disease and can reduce the use of cream or ointment medications such as corticosteroids. Formulation 609580 20 was developed to keep the moisturizing efficacy of formulation 609209 but to improve its tolerance and cosmetic acceptability (easier to apply, nicer texture, etc.). The new formulation contains the same quantity of shea butter and glycerin but in a different excipient (inactive substance) than the commercial product. In addition, vitamin B3 was added to see if it could help in reducing itching.

The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and efficacy of two study products in children with atopic dermatitis. One of the study products (formulation 609580 20) is not commercially available (outside of clinical trials such as this one). The other study product (formulation 609209) has been approved in Canada and is currently available commercially under the trade name Lipikar Baume.

For this study the child will be randomly assigned to one of the following two groups:

  • Group 1: 50 children will receive formulation 609209, the commercial formula for 42 days and will receive formulation 609580 20, the new formula, for 14 days.
  • Group 2: 50 children will receive formulation 609580 20, the new formula, for 42 days and will receive formulation 609209, the commercial formula, for 14 days.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Mean Percent Change in SCORAD (Scoring Atopic Dermatitis) From Day 0 [ Time Frame: 7 , 42 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The efficacy of formulation 609580 20 to provide relief to children with atopic dermatitis compared to formulation 609209 as measured by the changes in SCORAD at Day 7 and Day 42. It measures intensity of erythema/darkening, edema/papulation, oozing/crust, excoriation, lichenfinication/prurigo and dryness on a scale from 0-3 for a total of 18 points. This score is multiplided by 3.5 and added to 1/5 of the affected percent body surface area. The final score is added to the score from a 10-point pruritus visual analog scale (VAS) and a 10-point loss of sleep VAS. Best score is 0, worst is 103.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in Mean Global Efficacy (by Investigator). [ Time Frame: 7, 42 Days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    The efficacy of formulation 609580 20 to provide relief to children with atopic dermatitis compared to formulation 609209 as measured by the global efficacy evaluation scale at Day 7 and Day 42 (by investigator).

    • 0 = worsening
    • 1 = No change
    • 2 = Mild Improvement
    • 3 = Moderate Improvement
    • 4 = Good Improvement
    • 5 = Excellent Improvement

  • Change in Mean Global Efficacy (by Parent) [ Time Frame: 7, 42 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    The efficacy of formulation 609580 20 to provide relief to children with atopic dermatitis compared to formulation 609209 as measured by the global efficacy evaluation scale at Day 7 and Day 42 (by parent).

    • 0 = worsening
    • 1 = No change
    • 2 = Mild Improvement
    • 3 = Moderate Improvement
    • 4 = Good Improvement
    • 5 = Excellent Improvement

  • Change in Mean Quality of Life [ Time Frame: 0, 42 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The effect of formulation 609580 20 to improve quality of life compared to formulation 609209 as measured by changes in the quality of life questionnaire score from Day 0 to Day 42. Scale from -46 (worst) to 46 (best).

  • Change in Mean Cosmetic Acceptability Before Crossover [ Time Frame: 0, 42 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The cosmetic acceptability of formulation 609580 20 compared to formulation 609209 as measured by the total score in the cosmetic acceptability questionnaire during the first 42 prior to the crossover. Scale from 44 (worst) to -44 (best).

  • Change in Mean Cosmetic Acceptability After Crossover [ Time Frame: 14 days (Day 42 to Day 56 of the study) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The cosmetic acceptability of formulation 609580 20 compared to formulation 609209 as measured by the total score in the cosmetic acceptability questionnaire during the 2 week period after the crossover. Scale from 44 (worst) to -44 (best). The 14 Days after the crossover is the same as Day 56 in the study.

  • Change in Tolerance Before Crossover [ Time Frame: 7, 42 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

    Tolerance of study products assessed by investigator at Day 7, 42. It was evaluated using the following scale:

    • 1) Very good tolerance: no objective or subjective intolerance during the study
    • 2) Good tolerance: very occasional symptoms, not resulting in cessation of applications, no objective sign
    • 3) Average tolerance: repeated symptoms of intolerance, no cessation of application and no objective sign
    • 4) Poor tolerance: symptoms requiring cessation of application, no objective sign
    • 5) Very poor tolerance: objective signs of irritative or allergic dermatitis

  • Change in Mean Tolerance After Crossover [ Time Frame: 14 Days (Day 42 to Day 56 of the study) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Tolerance of study products assessed by investigator during the 2 weeks following the crossover (Day 56 of the study):

    • 1) Very good tolerance: no objective or subjective intolerance during the study
    • 2) Good tolerance: very occasional symptoms, not resulting in cessation of applications, no objective sign
    • 3) Average tolerance: repeated symptoms of intolerance, no cessation of application and no objective sign
    • 4) Poor tolerance: symptoms requiring cessation of application, no objective sign
    • 5) Very poor tolerance: objective signs of irritative or allergic dermatitis

  • Preferred Formulation [ Time Frame: 56 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Number of participants that preferred one formulation over the other. All patients started the study with one cream and crossed over to the other cream at Day 42 for another 14 days. Participants were asked which they prefered.

Detailed Description:

A randomized clinical trial performed at five (5) centers (Montreal, Laval, Quebec City, (Quebec); Markham, London (Ontario), Canada). One hundred (100) patients are enrolled in the study. Subjects and parent(s) or guardian are asked to present to the clinic for five (5) visits (Screening, D0, D7, D42, D56). Formulation 609580 20 or 609209 is applied twice a day (morning and evening) to the whole body for a total of 42 days and then there is a crossover between the two formulations.

Efficacy is evaluated at D0, D7 and D42 measured by SCORAD (scoring atopic dermatitis). Tolerance is evaluated by the investigator at D7, D42 and D56. Global efficacy is measured by parents and investigator at D7 and D42. Medical photographs (optional) of lesions are taken with patients consent at D0 and D42. A crossover between the two products occurs at day 42 so that cosmetic acceptability can be compared at D42 and D56. Skin examinations are performed at all visits. A quality of life questionnaire is filled out by the parent(s) at D0 and D42.
