|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Molluscum Contagiosum||Drug: 10% East Indian sandalwood oil cream Drug: Placebo Cream||Phase 2|
This trial will be a multi-center, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled safety and efficacy trial to evaluate the efficacy and safety of VIR003 treatment regimen when administered to pediatric subjects with molluscum contagiosum.
Once subject eligibility is confirmed the subject will start the Treatment Period of the study. All subjects will receive active treatment or placebo with the first dose applied at the Day 0 Study Visit. Subjects will be instructed on how to apply the study medication twice a day for 90 days of treatment. Subjects will return to the clinic on Study Days, 7, 14, 30, 45, 60 and 90 for routine evaluations and then on Study Day 97 for the Final Study Visit.
Safety will be assessed by evaluating adverse events (AEs) with respect to severity, duration, and relationship to study drug. In addition tolerability evaluations will be performed at each study visit.
The preliminary efficacy evaluation for the study will be the resolution of molluscum contagiosum lesions at Study Day 90 in evaluable subjects.

- Safety profile of the treatment [ Time Frame: Monitored throughout the trial (90 Days) ]The primary purpose of this study is to determine the safety profile of VIR003. Safety will be assessed by evaluating adverse events (AEs) with respect to severity, duration, and relationship to study drug compared to placebo.
- Change in lesion count [ Time Frame: Measured at Day 90 ]Percent change in lesion count from Baseline to Study Day 90 in evaluable subjects
- Improvement in GAIS score [ Time Frame: Measured at Day 90 ]Percentage of subjects who are very much improved, much improved, or improved (treatment success) at Day 90, as judged by the Global Aesthetic Improvement Scale (GAIS).
- Complete resolution of lesions [ Time Frame: Measured at Day 90 ]1. The percentage of subjects with complete resolution of molluscum contagiosum lesion at Study Day 90 in evaluable subjects. The percentage of subjects with complete resolution of molluscum contagiosum lesion at Study Day 90 in evaluable subjects.
- Improvement in Evaluator's Global Severity Score (EGSS) [ Time Frame: Measured at Day 90 ]Percentage of subjects with a baseline Evaluator's Global Severity Score (EGSS) of "moderate" or worse who are "clear" or "almost clear," or have at least a two-grade improvement at Day 90 as judged by the EGSS.
