Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: Treatment I: CCH Shallow Injection, 3 Aliquots

In Treatment I, CCH will be injected subcutaneously while the subject lies in a prone position. Each injection will consist of a single skin injection of study drug administered as three 0.1 mL aliquots (for a total injection volume of 0.3 mL).

During each treatment visit, 8 syringes (4 syringes per treatment area) will be prepared for dosing. Each syringe will contain 0.9 mL of CCH (3 injections in each syringe). Dose per subject per treatment visit = up to 1.68 mg of CCH (0.84 mg in each treatment area).

Drug: collagenase clostridium histolyticum (CCH)
Endo Pharmaceuticals Inc. (Endo) is developing collagenase clostridium histolyticum (CCH) for the treatment of EFP. Because CCH is a proteinase that can hydrolyze the triple-helical region of collagen under physiological conditions, CCH has the potential to be effective in lysing sub-dermal collagen, such as those observed in the dermal septa, which are the underlying cause of the skin dimpling in women with Edematous Fibrosclerotic Panniculopathy (EFP). CCH targets the collagenase structural matrix (e.g., dermal septa) at the site of injection and does not require systemic exposure to be effective.

Active Comparator: Treatment II: CCH Shallow Injection, 1 Aliquot

In Treatment II, CCH will be injected subcutaneously while the subject is in a prone position. Each injection will consist of a single skin injection of study drug administered as a single shallow injection of a 0.3 mL aliquot.

During each treatment visit, 8 syringes (4 syringes per treatment area) will be prepared for dosing. Each syringe will contain 0.9 mL of CCH (3 injections in each syringe). Dose per subject per treatment visit = up to 1.68 mg of CCH (0.84 mg in each treatment area).

Active Comparator: Treatment III: CCH Deep Injection, 1 Aliquot

In Treatment III, CCH will be injected subcutaneously while the subject is in a prone position. Each injection will consist of a single skin injection of study drug administered as a single deep injection of a 0.3 mL study drug aliquot.

During each treatment visit, 8 syringes (4 syringes per treatment area) will be prepared for dosing. Each syringe will contain 0.9 mL of CCH (3 injections in each syringe). Dose per subject per treatment visit = up to 1.68 mg of CCH (0.84 mg in each treatment area).

Active Comparator: Treatment IV: CCH Deep and Shallow Injections, 5 Aliquots

In Treatment IV, CCH will be injected subcutaneously while the subject lies in a prone position. Each injection will consist of a single skin injection of study drug administered as five 0.3 mL (for a total injection volume of 1.5 mL).

During each treatment visit, 24 syringes (12 syringes per treatment area) will be prepared for dosing. Each syringe will contain 1.5mL of CCH (5 aliquots of 0.3 mL, for each injection, in each syringe). Dose per subject per treatment visit = up to 1.68 mg of CCH (0.84 mg in each treatment area).

Active Comparator: Treatment V: CCH Shallow Injections, 4 Aliquots

In Treatment V, CCH will be injected subcutaneously while the subject lies in a prone position. Each injection will receive a single skin injection of study drug administered as four 0.3 mL aliquots (for a total injection volume of 1.2 mL).

During each treatment visit, 24 syringes (12 syringes per treatment area) will be prepared for dosing. Each syringe will contain 1.2mL of CCH (4 aliquots of 0.3mL each). Dose per subject per treatment visit = up to 1.68 mg of CCH (0.84 mg in each treatment area).

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The aesthetic appearance improvement from baseline in the 3-D photographic image using the Likert Scale score of aesthetic appearance. [ Time Frame: 71 Days: Subjects who complete the study will participate for up to 92 days including a 21 day screening period, a 43 day active treatment period, and a 28 day follow-up period. ]
    Change from baseline in the Likert Scale score of aesthetic.

  2. The change from baseline in the Hexsel CSS (B) depression depth scale [ Time Frame: 71 Days: Subjects who complete the study will participate for up to 92 days including a 21 day screening period, a 43 day active treatment period, and a 28 day follow-up period. ]
