Safety and Efficacy of QuadridermeÂ® in the Treatment of Impetiginous Eczema (Study P05134AM4)
This is a parallel-group, randomized, active-controlled, double-blind, Phase 4 trial comparing three creams in the treatment of impetiginous eczema:
- Arm A: QUADRIDERME® cream (betamethasone diproprionate, clotrimazole and gentamicin sulfate)
- Arm B: Combination of betamethasone diproprionate cream and gentamicin sulfate cream
- Arm C: Betamethasone diproprionate cream
At 7 sites, in Portugal, a total of 207 subjects will be randomized using a 1:1:1 randomization ratio to receive one of the three possible treatments for a maximum period of 28 days or until 5 days after total remission of the signs and symptoms, but never more than 28 days. Assessments will be made of level of improvement of the target area in each treatment group, number of days for total remission, and safety profile.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Treatment
Cream (betamethasone diproprionate, clotrimazole, and gentamicin sulfate), Cream (betamethasone diproprionate and gentamicin), Cream (betamethasone diproprionate)

A glucocorticoid given orally, parenterally, by local injection, by inhalation, or applied topically in the management of various disorders in which corticosteroids are indicated. Its lack of mineralocorticoid properties makes betamethasone particularly suitable for treating cerebral edema and congenital adrenal hyperplasia.
