†BSA is determined by measuring the number of handprints of involvement present with atopic dermatitis or eczema. A handprint includes the palm and the fingers. One handprint is approximately equivalent to 1% of body surface area. Since this study requires a BSA of at least 10%, this equates to at least 10 handprints.

You may qualify for participation if you:
  • Are 18 years or older in age
  • Have been diagnosed with chronic atopic dermatitis (eczema) that has been present for at least 1 year
  • Have a body surface area (BSA) involvement of at least 10%
    • BSA is determined by measuring the number of handprints of involvement present with atopic dermatitis or eczema. A handprint includes the palm and the fingers. One handprint is approximately equivalent to 1% of body surface area. Since this study requires a BSA of at least 10%, this equates to at least 10 handprints.
You may not qualify for participation if you:
  • Have an active skin infection requiring antibiotic treatment

There are additional requirements to qualify for this study. A member of the study team will discuss these with you during screening.

What is atopic dermatitis?

Atopic dermatitis or eczema is a skin condition that makes you itch and leaves red blotches, usually on your face, arms, and legs. It is long lasting, or chronic, and tends to flare periodically.

Common symptoms may include rashes, dryness, flakiness, bumps, fissures, peeling, itching, or redness.

Common triggers that may flare AD include irritants to the skin such as soaps and detergents. Or environmental factors or allergens – such as cold and dry weather, dampness, and pollen.

What is a clinical research study?

A clinical research study tests the safety and effectiveness of an investigational medication, also referred to as a study drug, in human volunteers. Every investigational medication goes through the clinical trial process. Therefore, participants play a very important role in advancing medicine for present and future generations.
