Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Ruxolitinib cream
Ruxolitinib 1.5% cream BID for 16 weeks, followed by ruxolitinib cream BID 16-week open-label extension.
Drug: Ruxolitinib cream
Ruxolitinib cream is a topical formulation applied as a thin film to affected areas.
Other Name: INCB018424 cream

Drug: Vehicle cream
Vehicle cream is matching in appearance to ruxolitinib cream and is to be applied in the same manner as ruxolitinib cream.

Placebo Comparator: Vehicle Cream
Vehicle cream BID for 16 weeks, followed by ruxolitinib 1.5% cream BID in a 16-week open-label extension.
Drug: Vehicle cream
Vehicle cream is matching in appearance to ruxolitinib cream and is to be applied in the same manner as ruxolitinib cream.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Proportion of Participants with Investigator's Global Assessment Treatment Success (IGA-TS) [ Time Frame: Week 16 ]
    Defined as an IGA score of 0 or 1 with ≥ 2-grade improvement from baseline.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Proportion of Participants achieving IGA-TS [ Time Frame: Up to Week 32 ]
    Defined as the percentage of participants achieving IGA-TS at each scheduled postbaseline visit.

  2. Proportion of Participants with ITCH4 response [ Time Frame: Up to Week 32 ]
    Defined as a ≥ 4-point improvement in the Itch Numeric Rating Scale (Itch NRS) score from baseline.

  3. Time to achieve ITCH4 [ Time Frame: Up to Week 32 ]
    Time to achieve >=4 point improvement in Itch NRS score

  4. Change from baseline in the Skin Pain Numeric Rating Scale (NRS) score [ Time Frame: Up to Week 32 ]
    Defined as skin pain severity on an 11-point scale ranging from 0 (no pain) to 10 (worst pain imaginable) in the past 24 hours.

  5. Number of Treatment Emergent Adverse Events (TEAEs) [ Time Frame: Up to 36 weeks ]
    Adverse events reported for the first time or worsening of a pre-existing event after first dose of study drug/treatment.

Layout table for eligibility information
Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Clinical diagnosis of LP with predominant cutaneous involvement.
  • IGA score of 3 or 4 at screening and baseline.
  • Baseline LP-related Itch NRS score ≥ 4.
  • Willingness to avoid pregnancy or fathering children.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Concurrent conditions and history of other diseases:

    1. Variants of LP deemed by the investigators to be inappropriate for topical treatment, including but not limited to predominant mucosal (such as oral or vaginal) LP.
    2. Active ongoing inflammatory diseases of the skin other than LP that might confound the evaluation of LP lesions or compromise participant safety.
    3. Any other concomitant skin disorder (eg, generalized erythroderma such as Netherton's syndrome), pigmentation, or extensive scarring that in the opinion of the investigator may interfere with the evaluation of LP lesions or compromise participant safety.
    4. Immunocompromised (eg, lymphoma, acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, or Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome).
    5. Chronic or acute infection requiring treatment with systemic antibiotics, antivirals, antiparasitics, antiprotozoals, or antifungals within 2 weeks before baseline.
    6. Active acute bacterial, fungal, or viral skin infection (eg, herpes simplex, herpes zoster, chickenpox, clinically infected AD, or impetigo) within 1 week before baseline.
  • Laboratory values outside of the protocol-defined criteria.
  • Pregnant or lactating participants, or those considering pregnancy during the period of their study participation.
  • Other exclusive criteria may apply.
