Intervention Details:
    Device: BRT-FC-83C
    BRT-FC-83C is a topical cream to treat atopic dermatitis. It is applied topically, twice a day, to the atopic dermatitis skin lesion for six weeks.
Detailed Description:
Atopic dermatitis is a common skin disease. BRT-FC-83C is a skin cream that does not contain corticosteroids or other anti-inflammatory components. It represents a novel class of skin barrier repair therapy for chronic dermatoses. The objective of this clinical study is to determine whether BRT-FC-83C, applied twice a day to the affected area of the skin, ameliorates signs and symptoms of mild to moderate atopic dermatitis.
