Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 60 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double (Participant, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Study Start Date : May 2014
Estimated Primary Completion Date : September 2016

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: VITICELL
In this arm, lesions will be treated by autologous epidermal cells suspension (containing hyaluronic acid) obtained after VITICELL kit's use, a class III medical device.
Sham Comparator: PLACEBO
In this arm, lesions will be treated by a suspension of hyaluronic acid without epidermal cells.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Successful repigmentation: more than or equal to 50% repigmentation of the treated area [ Time Frame: up to month 12 ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Repigmentation rate ≥ 50% of the treated area [ Time Frame: month 12 ]

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Number of adverse events in each group [ Time Frame: Day 0/Day 6-7/Month 3/6/9/12 ]

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Men and women aged over 18 years old with a diagnosis of non-scaring leukoderma that has been stable over the last 2 years (non-segmental, segmental vitiligo and piebaldism)
  • For non-segmental vitiligo: symmetrical vitiligo lesions, or parts of a lesion. A part of at least 1 cm2 (1 x 1 cm), but preferable 4 cm2 (2x2 cm) and preferably in the center of each lesions (left/right) should be treated.

The minimum distance between the normal pigmented skin and the test area should preferably be at least 0.5 cm.

  • For segmental vitiligo lesion and piebaldism: all lesions possible if two parts of at least 1 cm2 (1 x 1 cm), but preferably 4 cm2 (2 x 2 cm) in the lesion can be treated. The minimum distance between the 2 areas should be 2 cm and between test areas and to the normal pigmented skin preferably at least 0.5 cm.
  • Medical treatments of vitiligo failed (in case of vitiligo: at least cream treatment for 6 months).
