Absolute change from Baseline in inflammatory lesion counts at week 12 [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
Statistical superiority of FCD105 vs. vehicle in the absolute change from Baseline in inflammatory lesion counts at Visit 4 (Week12/End of Treatment)
Absolute change from Baseline in non-inflammatory lesion counts at week 12 [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
Statistical superiority of FCD105 vs. vehicle in the absolute change from Baseline in non-inflammatory lesion counts at Visit 4 (Week12/End of Treatment)
Investigator's Global Assessment (IGA) Treatment Success at Week 12 [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
Statistical superiority of FCD105 vs. vehicle in in IGA Treatment Susccess at Visit 4 (Week 12/End of Treatment), where success is defined as an IGA score of 0 or 1, and at least a 2-grade improvement (decrease) from Baseline.
