Study is intended to evaluate safety and efficacy parameters in patients treated with GLYC-101 gel or placebo after laser ablation.

Condition Intervention Phase
Wounds Drug: Placebo gel Drug: GLYC-101 gel (1.0 %) Phase 1 Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Quadruple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Double-blind, Randomized, Placebo-controlled Phase 2 Pilot Study to Investigate the Safety and Clinical Outcomes of 1.0 % Topically Applied GLYC-101, Compared to Placebo, in Healthy Subjects Undergoing Retro-auricular Carbon Dioxide Laser Skin Resurfacing.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Time to Complete Wound Closure (Epithelialization) [ Time Frame: Over the course of 1 month following the initial treatment. ]
    Subjects were evaluated every 2 days from the time of the laser procedures for the first 10 days and then seen every 2 weeks for 4 weeks. Efficacy was assessed based on the time to complete epithelialization in terms of the number of days from Day 1 (day of laser ablation) to the day on which complete epithelialization was observed.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Wound Epithelialized [ Time Frame: Day 15 post laser ablation. ]
    The percentage of wound epithelialized was assessed at Day 15 post laser ablation.

Enrollment: 12
Study Start Date: March 2008
Study Completion Date: August 2008
Primary Completion Date: April 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1
GLYC-101 Active Retro-auricular Site (1 per participant)
Drug: GLYC-101 gel (1.0 %)
Administration on Day 1, 3 and 5 post laser ablation.
Placebo Comparator: 2 Comparator

Placebo Retro-auricular Site (1 per participant)

This arm undergoes laser ablation with subsequent Placebo gel administration

Drug: Placebo gel
Administration of Placebo gel on Day 1, 3 and 5 post ablation.

Detailed Description:
The proposed pilot-study will document feasibility, safety and efficacy of topically applied Glucoprime gel (GLYC-101 gel 1.0 %) in promoting wound healing in healthy volunteer subjects undergoing retro-auricular Carbon Dioxide Laser Skin Resurfacing (CO2 LSR). The study will observe the effects of the topical agent over the course of 1 month following the treatment. as a preparation for study GLYC-101-1b (Double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled Phase 2 Pilot Study to investigate the safety and efficacy of 1.0 % topically applied GLYC 101 compared to placebo, in patients undergoing Carbon Dioxide Laser Skin Resurfacing).

Ages Eligible for Study:   25 Years to 65 Years   (Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   Yes

Inclusion Criteria:

Subjects meeting all of the following criteria will be considered for admission to the study:

  • Patients giving informed consent for retro-auricular laser ablation between 25 and 55 years old.
  • Retro-auricular area is free of any irritation, scars or dermatologic conditions which might interfere with the study.
  • Willing and able to participate in the study and follow all study directions.
  • Able to read, understand and sign the consent form.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Pregnant, nursing, or planning a pregnancy during the course of the study, as determined by the interview and a urine pregnancy test.
