Adults aged 18 years and older with atopic dermatitis (AD) present for at least 3 months, may qualify to participate. The condition must be stable for 1 month or more. Individuals must have mild to moderate AD with involvement of 35% or less body surface area (excluding the face, scalp and groin). At least 2 comparable target AD lesions (sized approximately 10 to 200 cm2), located on the trunk, upper extremities or lower extremities (excluding hands and soles of feet), must be present.
In the first part of the study, participants will apply investigational gel medication (active study drug) and vehicle gel (placebo) to the target lesions. In the second part of the study, participants will apply investigational gel medication to all target lesions. Study medication and study-related assessments will be provided at no cost. Reimbursement for study-related expenses will also be provided.
Study participation will last about 12 weeks and involve about 8 visits to the study centre. On the days in between clinic visits, supervised application of each dose may occur at the study centre/clinic or at home.

Physical examination without any clinically relevant findings (excluding findings relating to AD).
Systolic blood pressure in the range of 90 to 160 mmHg (inclusive) and diastolic blood pressure in the range of 50 to 95 mmHg (inclusive) after 5 minutes in supine position.

Body temperature (tympanic or oral), between 35.5°C and 37.7°C (inclusive).
Electrocardiogram findings (ventricular HR, PR interval, QRS duration, QT interval and QTcF) within normal ranges (site-specific normal ranges may be used).
Triplicate 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) (taken after the subject has been supine for at least 5 minutes) with a QTcF ≤ 450 msec for males and ≤ 470 msec for females and no other clinically significant abnormalities.
All laboratory blood and urinalysis test results within normal ranges for the local laboratory, including the following specific findings:
i. Lymphocyte count ≥ 0.5 x 10 9/L ii. Haemoglobin ≥ 9g/dL iii. Absolute neutrophil count ≥ 1 x 10 9/L Assessments may be repeated once, if abnormal values were recorded in the first instance, at the discretion of the PI.
Female subjects must:
Be of non-childbearing potential (i.e., surgically sterilised [hysterectomy, bilateral salpingectomy, bilateral oophorectomy at least 6 weeks before the screening visit]) or postmenopausal (where postmenopausal is defined as no menses for 12 months without an alternative medical cause, and a follicle-stimulating hormone [FSH] level >40 IU/L at the screening visit), or
If of childbearing potential, must agree not to donate ova, not to attempt to become pregnant and, if engaging in sexual intercourse with a male partner, must agree to use an acceptable method of contraception (refer to Section 21.5) from signing the consent form until at least 2 months after the last dose of the study drug.
Male subjects, if not biologically or surgically sterilized, must agree not to donate sperm and, if engaging in sexual intercourse, must agree to use a condom from signing the consent form until at least 90 days after the last dose of study drug. If engaging with a female partner who could become pregnant, the female partner must additionally use an acceptable method of contraception (refer to Section 21.5) for this same period.
Have suitable venous access for blood sampling.
Be willing and able to comply with all study assessments (optional photography assessments excluded) and adhere to the protocol schedule and restrictions

Active impetigo at any of the target lesions.
Concomitant dermatologic conditions (e.g. irritant contact dermatitis, allergic contact dermatitis, psoriasis, etc.) or other medical condition(s) which may, in the opinion of the Investigator, interfere with evaluations of the subject’s response to study drug.
Positive test results for active human immunodeficiency virus (HIV-1 or HIV-2), hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) or hepatitis C virus (HCV) antibodies at the screening visit.
Evidence or history of active, latent or inadequately treated tuberculosis (TB) infection at the screening visit.
