Intertrigo Drug: Vusion Early Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Open-Label Pilot Study of the Efficacy and Safety of Vusion Ointment for the Treatment of Intertrigo

Further study details as provided by Image Dermatology P.C.:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The number of patients for whom Vusion effectively treated intertrigo [ Time Frame: 3 months ]

Estimated Enrollment: 15
Study Start Date: April 2010
Study Completion Date: May 2011
Primary Completion Date: November 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Vusion ointment Drug: Vusion
Vusion will be applied to areas of intertrigo

Detailed Description:

Intertrigo is an inflammatory condition of skin folds, induced or aggravated by heat, moisture, maceration, friction, or lack of air circulation. It is typically chronic with insidious onset of itching, burning, and stinging within the affected skin folds. Intertrigo frequently worsened or colonized by infection, which most commonly is candidal but also may be bacterial, fungal, or viral. The etiology of diaper dermatitis shows significant overlap with that of intertrigo. Vusion ointment, a highly effective treatment for diaper dermatitis, has been used by physicians for the treatment of intertrigo; however, there is a paucity of data in the literature regarding the use of Vusion ointment in this indication.

This study is the first to formally investigate the efficacy and safety of Vusion ointment for the treatment of intertrigo.
