PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying how well Regenecare® wound gel works in treating rash in patients receiving epidermal growth factor receptor inhibitor therapy for cancer.
- Determine the efficacy of Regenecare® wound gel in alleviating pain and itching in patients who develop an acneform rash while undergoing treatment with human epidermal receptor 1 (HER1)/epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) inhibitor therapy for cancer.
- Determine the tolerability of this drug in these patients.
- Determine satisfaction of these patients with this drug.
OUTLINE: This is a pilot, prospective, study.
- Observation: Patients undergo facial evaluation by full-face photography (i.e., camera lens 12-18 inches from the face) prior to development of skin rash (baseline). Patients then self-monitor for the appearance of acneform skin rash while undergoing concurrent cancer therapy. Upon initial onset of rash, patients are re-evaluated. Patients with grade 2 skin rash proceed to treatment.
- Treatment: Patients apply topical Regenecare® wound gel to the right side of the face ≥ 4 times daily. After 1 week of treatment, patients apply the gel to both sides of the face. Treatment continues for ≥ 6 weeks in the absence of unacceptable toxicity or until the rash disappears.
Patients are evaluated weekly by facial examination, full-face photography, clinical symptoms self-reported in a patient diary, and questionnaires measuring patient satisfaction and quality of life.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 20 patients will be accrued for this study.
Primary Purpose: Supportive Care

A lipid cofactor that is required for normal blood clotting. Several forms of vitamin K have been identified: VITAMIN K 1 (phytomenadione) derived from plants, VITAMIN K 2 (menaquinone) from bacteria, and synthetic naphthoquinone provitamins, VITAMIN K 3 (menadione). Vitamin K 3 provitamins, after being alkylated in vivo, exhibit the antifibrinolytic activity of vitamin K. Green leafy vegetables, liver, cheese, butter, and egg yolk are good sources of vitamin K.
A fibrillar collagen found widely distributed as a minor component in tissues that contain COLLAGEN TYPE I and COLLAGEN TYPE III. It is a heterotrimeric molecule composed of alpha1(V), alpha2(V) and alpha3(V) subunits. Several forms of collagen type V exist depending upon the composition of the subunits that form the trimer.
A nutritional condition produced by a deficiency of VITAMIN D in the diet, insufficient production of vitamin D in the skin, inadequate absorption of vitamin D from the diet, or abnormal conversion of vitamin D to its bioactive metabolites.
