Study Overview

Research sites across the U.S. are currently enrolling participants in a trial to investigate a new topical study ointment for adolescents and adults (ages 12-65) with mild or moderate atopic dermatitis.

Volunteers are critical in helping medical researchers develop new options for patients with atopic dermatitis. If you or your teenager may be interested in participating, complete the short online questionnaire. If you may qualify, you will then schedule a brief call with a study team member to discuss your potential participation.

I saw the benefits (of participating in research) as helping the medication move forward, for humanity. Also, I wanted an alternative to steroids.

What to Expect If You Enroll

  1. During the screening period (up to 35 days), the study doctor will perform assessments to determine if you or your teenager is eligible to participate.

  2. Potential study participants will need to pause the use of certain medications for the duration of the clinical trial. The use of mild cleansers or bland (i.e., non-medicated) emollients may be used as approved by the study doctor.

  3. Those who qualify may receive either the investigational ointment or a vehicle (placebo) to apply to affected areas of skin twice daily for 4 weeks. Participants will be randomly assigned (like the flip of a coin) to receive either the study ointment or the vehicle.

  4. As part of the twice daily application of the study ointment or vehicle, participants will also complete a short questionnaire about their itch level and record when they applied the treatment daily.

  5. There are five visits over a period of up to 9 weeks. After the screening and the baseline visits, the 28-day treatment period includes 3 follow-up visits with the study doctor. One of these visits is virtual (by phone).

5 visits

There are 5 total study visits. 4 visits are in person and 1 is by phone.

5-9 weeks

The five study visits will be scheduled over a period of approximately 5-9 weeks.

2x per day

You will apply the study treatment twice a day for 4 weeks.
