Reporting Groups
  Description
Pimecrolimus

Pimecrolimus: 20 AD patients will be given pimecrolimus 1% to apply twice daily for up to three weeks on each lesional site predetermined at baseline. AD severity will be evaluated by the Investigator Global Assessment of Disease Activity (IGA). The IGA scale is 0=clear, 1=almost clear, 2=mild, 3=moderate, 4=severe disease. The patient's AD will be evaluated on Visit 1 (Day -14 to 1), Visit 2 (Day 1), and Visit 3 (Week 21). Lesional target site and non-lesional site will be determined at Visit 1.

Two 2 mm biopsies will be obtained from a target AD lesion and non-lesional sites at Visit 2, and Visit 3 (four biopsies each visit).

Vehicle Cream

Vehicle cream: 20 AD patients will be treated with vehicle cream twice daily for up to 3 weeks on each lesional site predetermined at baseline. AD severity will be evaluated by the Investigator Global Assessment of Disease Activity (IGA). The IGA scale is 0=clear, 1=almost clear, 2=mild, 3=moderate, 4=severe disease9. The patient's AD will be evaluated on Visit 1 (Day -14 to 1), Visit 2 (Day 1), and Visit 3 (Week 21). Lesional target site and non-lesional site will be determined at Visit 1.

Two 2 mm biopsies will be obtained from a target AD lesion and non-lesional sites at Visit 2, and Visit 3 (four biopsies each visit).
