A Pilot Study to Evaluate The Efficacy of Adapalene 0.3% for Use in the Prevention and Treatment of Senile Purpura
Phase II Pilot Study to Evaluate The Efficacy of Adapalene 0.3% for Use in The Prevention and Treatment of Senile Purpura

This is an open label 6 month pilot study for male and female participants over the age of 52 that desire treatment and prevention of senile purpura of the forearms.

This study will be evaluating the effects of Adapalene 0.3% for the use in the treatment and prevention of senile purpura.

This is a new potential use for the product Adapalene 0.3%, which is currently an FDA approved topical treatment used for the treatment of acne.

Senile purpura is a common sign of aging that appears in the form of dark blotches on the skin and is caused by bruising.

Older adults tend to be more prone to bruising, since as people age, their skin becomes thinner and more fragile.

Interventional
Phase 2
Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Senile Purpura
Drug: adapalene gel 0.3%
A pea size drop of Adapalene gel 0.3% will be applied to the odd numbered subjects on the left dorsal hand & extensor forearm. A pea size drop of Adapalene gel 0.3% will be applied to the even numbered subjects on the right dorsal hand & extensor forearm. The randomized area will be cleansed with Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser before applying the study medication.
