Brief Summary:
Congenital ichthyosis (CI) is a large, heterogeneous family of inherited skin disorders of cornification resulting from an abnormality of skin keratinization, such as scaling and thickening of the skin. Treatment options include keratolytic agents, which can abruptly lead to extensive shedding or peeling of scales. PAT-001 primarily acts as a keratolytic agent; thus, making it a potential drug candidate for the treatment of skin disorders associated with hyperkeratinization, such as CI. The current study intends to evaluate the safety and tolerability of PAT-001 in patients with CI of either the Lamellar or X-Linked subtypes.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Congenital Ichthyosis Drug: PAT-001, 0.1% Drug: PAT-001, 0.2% Drug: Vehicle Phase 2

Detailed Description:

The management of CI is a life-long endeavor, which remains largely symptomatic (i.e., emollients with or without keratolytics agents) and commonly focused on reducing scaling and/or skin lubrication with both systemic and topical treatments. A first-line therapy includes hydration and lubrication accomplished by creams and ointments containing low concentrations of salt, urea, or glycerol, which increase the water-binding capacity of the horny layer. Addition of keratolytics agents are used to decrease corneocyte cohesiveness, to promote desquamation, and to dissolve keratins and lipids (e.g., α-hydroxy acids, salicylic acid, high dose urea, propylene glycol, N-acetylcysteine, and retinoids). Systemic retinoid treatment is reserved for those patients refractory to topical agents because of long-term adverse effects and teratogenicity.

This is a two part, Phase 2, multicenter, proof-of-concept (POC) study of the safety and tolerability of PAT-001 for the treatment of Congenital ichthyosis (CI) in patients ages 12 years of age and older. Part 1 will be a double-blind, randomized, vehicle controlled, bilateral comparison of two treatments (PAT-001 [0.1% or 0.2%] vs. vehicle) for eight (8) weeks.

Part 2 will be a double-blind, active only treatment comparison of the two PAT-001 concentrations (0.1% or 0.2%) for an additional four (4) weeks. Subjects will have the option to participate in the pharmacokinetics (PK) portion of the study.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Group 1

Part 1: Bilateral comparison. Patients will have two comparable Treatment Areas: PAT-001, 0.1% (e.g., left side) and Vehicle, 0.0% (e.g., right side).

Part 2: Patients will apply PAT-001, 0.1% to both Treatment Areas.

Drug: PAT-001, 0.1%
PAT-001 is a topical ointment. PAT-001, 0.1% contains 0.1% of active drug.
Other Name: PAT-001

Drug: Vehicle
Vehicle topical ointment contains 0.0% of active drug and is color matched to the active test article, PAT-001.

Group 2 (Part 1)

Part 1: Bilateral comparison. Patients will have two comparable Treatment Areas: PAT-001, 0.2% (e.g., left side) and Vehicle, 0.0% (e.g., right side).

Part 2: Patients will apply PAT-001, 0.2% to both Treatment Areas.

Drug: PAT-001, 0.2%
PAT-001 is a topical ointment. PAT-001, 0.2% contains 0.2% of active drug.
Other Name: PAT-001

Drug: Vehicle
Vehicle topical ointment contains 0.0% of active drug and is color matched to the active test article, PAT-001.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Adverse Events (AEs) [ Time Frame: Day 0 through Day 84 ]
    AEs will be assessed by the investigator and the incidence (severity and causality) of any local and systemic AEs will be reported.

  2. Incidence of Local Skin Reactions (LSRs) [ Time Frame: Up to Day 84 ]
    LSRs including burning/stinging, pain, and pruritus will be assessed in each Treatment Area using a four-point ordinal scale where 0=none, 1=mild, 2=moderate, and 3=severe at each clinic visit to allow a comparison between Treatment Groups and Test Articles.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Investigator's Global Assessment (IGA) using a five-point scale [ Time Frame: Up to Day 84 ]
    Overall severity of ichthyosis will be graded using a five-point scale (IGA) from 0=clear to 4=severe. This is a static morphological scale that refers to a point in time and not a comparison to Baseline.

  2. Individual Clinical Signs/Symptoms using a five-point scale [ Time Frame: Up to Day 84 ]
    Overall severity of erythema, scaling, fissuring, and papulation/lichenification will be graded using a five-point scale from 0=clear to 4=severe. This is a static morphological scale that refers to a point in time and not a comparison to Baseline.


Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Pharmacokinetics (AUC) [ Time Frame: Day 1 (0,1, 2, 3, and 4 hours post Dose) ]
    Area under the plasma concentration versus time curve (AUC)
