|Skin Abnormality||Device: Formulations for in-vivo fixation||Early Phase 1|
The formulations are comprised of standard non-toxic laboratory chemicals that are used in various dermatological preparations.
Transition metal salts - Zinc chloride, zinc bromide, zinc iodide,zinc nitrate, zinc sulphate. copper chloride ,copper bromide, copper iodide, copper nitrate, copper sulphate.
Keratolytics - salicylic acid , lactic acid, nitric acid, pyruvic acid,oxalic acid, trichloro acetic acid, phenol, resorcinol,urea .
The solvents and penetration enhancers of the ingredients - Water, ethanol, dimethyl sulfoxide, propylene glycol, glycerol.
Patients with skin lesions that after clinical diagnosis are usually treated by dermatologists with destructive modalities without an histological evaluation will be included in the study. The clinical diagnoses include viral warts, seborrheic warts, skin tags, solar keratoses, fibromata and hemangiomata.
The treated lesions will be located on the trunk and limbs. Lesions on the face will not be included in the study.
The formulations will be infiltrated intra-dermally into the lesions in a maximal volume not exceeding 0.05 ml.
After the achievement of the desired local fixation effect, the lesions will be examined by a pathologist.
The patients will be closely followed-up during the procedure and the degree of possible associated pain will be evaluated. Possible local infection and the degree of scarring will be evaluated until complete healing of the treated area will occur.
The histological result will be informed to the patients.
