Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change From Baseline in Weekly Average WI-NRS at Week 8 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 8 ]
    WI-NRS score: Participants were asked daily to assign a numerical score to the intensity of their most severe (worst) pruritus in the past 24 hours using a scale from 0 to 10, with 0 indicating no pruritus and 10 indicating the worst imaginable pruritus. Daily scores were averaged for a weekly score. A negative change from Baseline indicates improvement.

  5. Change From Baseline in 5-D Pruritus Total Score Over Time [ Time Frame: Baseline, Weeks 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18 ]
    This tool evaluates pruritus in 5 domains: duration, degree, direction, disability and distribution. Duration, degree and direction each consist of 1 item. The disability domain contains 4 items and the distribution domain includes 16 items. The first 4 domains are measured on a 5-point Likert scale.

  16. Change From Baseline in Dermatology Life Quality Index (DLQI) Total Score Over Time [ Time Frame: Baseline, Weeks 4, 8, 12, 16, 18 ]
    The DLQI is a 10-question questionnaire that considers symptoms and feelings, daily activities, leisure, school, personal relationships, and treatment. Each question, except question 7, is answered on a scale of 0 to 3 (0 for not at all, 1 for a little, 2 for a lot, and 3 for very much), taking into account the previous week. For question 7: participants were asked "Over the last week, has your skin prevented you from working or studying?" If answered yes, score=3; If no, a second question will be asked: "Over the last week how much has your skin been a problem at work or studying?" If further answered a lot, score=2; if a little, score=1; if not at all or not relevant, score=0. The DLQI total score is defined as the sum of all 10-question scores with minimum of 0 meaning no effect on quality of life and 30 meaning extremely large effect.
