Official Title

A Phase 3 Clinical Trial to Evaluate Efficacy and Safety of Twice-daily Applications of Delgocitinib Cream 20 mg/g Compared With Cream Vehicle for a 16-week Treatment Period in Adolescents 12-17 Years of Age With Moderate to Severe Chronic Hand Eczema ID



LEO Pharma

Study Description

  • Brief Summary:

    The purpose of this trial is to test if delgocitinib cream is effective at treating chronic hand eczema (CHE) and what side effects it may have, in children aged 12-17. There will be a range of assessments that rate the severity and extent of CHE symptoms, general health and quality of life. Delgocitinib is a cream that suppresses specific processes in the body's response to diseases like CHE, such as inflammation. The trial will last up to 22 weeks and has a 1-4 week screening period, a 16 week treatment period and a 2 week follow up period. During the treatment period each child will use either delgocitinib cream or a cream vehicle twice a day. Which cream each child receives is chosen randomly by a computer. The cream vehicle is made of the same ingredients as the delgocitinib cream except for the active medical ingredient. There will be 8 visits with the trial doctor.
