  Purpose

PH-10 is an aqueous hydrogel formulation of rose bengal disodium (RB) for topical administration to the skin, and is being studied for the treatment of cutaneous skin disorders, specifically psoriasis and atopic dermatitis. This multicenter phase 2 study of subjects randomized sequentially by center to one of four treatment cohorts will assess efficacy and safety of topical PH-10 applied once daily to areas of mild to moderate plaque psoriasis.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The primary efficacy endpoint is "Treatment Success," a static endpoint assessed at Day 29 after initial PH-10 treatment and defined as 0 or 1 on all Psoriasis Severity Index (PSI) components and 0 or 1 on the Plaque Response scale. [ Time Frame: 28 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • The primary safety endpoint is incidence of adverse experiences, including pain and dermatologic/skin toxicity (incidence, severity, frequency, duration and causality). [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Psoriasis Severity Index (PSI) score changes at each visit from Day 1 pre-treatment. [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Plaque Response score changes at each visit from Day 1 pre-treatment. [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Pruritus Self-Assessment score changes at each visit from Day 1 pre-treatment. [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
