Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To compare the performance of two techniques to monitor the clearance of AK lesions (clinical and subclinical) when treated with Aldara 5% cream by comparison of lesion counts. [ Time Frame: 8 weeks after the end of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To obtain histological confirmation of the diagnosis of the lesions demonstrated by biopsy. [ Time Frame: 8 weeks after the end of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Enrollment: 12
Study Start Date: February 2006
Study Completion Date: January 2007
Primary Completion Date: January 2007 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1
250mg of Imiquimod cream application once daily 3 times per week.
Drug: Aldara (Imiquimod)
250mg of Imiquimod cream for application once daily 3 times per week.
Placebo Comparator: 2
250mg vehicle cream for application once daily 3 times per week.
Other: Vehicle cream
250mg vehicle cream for application once daily 3 times per week.

Detailed Description:

Each technique will be assessed by comparison of lesion counts (clinical and sub-clinical) revealed by the techniques, at start and end of the study and those demonstrated during treatment. In addition a qualitative assessment of each technique will be made for performance and ease of use.
