The Effect of Gladskin on Disease Severity and the Skin Microbiome, Including Staphylococcus Aureus, in Patients With Atopic Dermatitis

2016-07-22 02:53:22 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Colonization with Staphylococcus aureus is related to inflammation in atopic dermatitis. Gladskin is a product for topical use containing the proprietary enzyme Staphefekt SA.100, which has the ability to specifically lyse the cell wall of S. aureus. The investigators hypothesize that Staphefekt decreases S. aureus colonization of the skin and consequently decreases symptoms of atopic dermatitis.The goal of this study is to determine the effect of Staphefekt on the use of topical corticosteroids in patients with atopic dermatitis. Secondary goals are to retrieve information about the effect on clinical symptoms, quality of life, growth characteristics of Staphylococcus aureus and the further microbiome.

Description

This is a multi center intervention study with a placebo controlled, double blind and randomized design. After standardization of corticosteroid treatment (triamcinolone acetonide 0.1% cream), patients will be randomized in a 1:1 fashion to either treatment with Staphefekt SA.100 for 12 weeks or treatment with a placebo for 12 weeks. Topical corticosteroid use will be evaluated 2, 6, 12 and 20 weeks after start of the intervention. Swabs of the skin, nose and throat will be collected at baseline, week 2, 12 and 20.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A disseminated vesicular-pustular eruption caused by the herpes simplex virus (HERPESVIRUS HOMINIS), the VACCINIA VIRUS, or Varicella zoster (HERPESVIRUS 3, HUMAN). It is usually superimposed on a preexisting, inactive or active, atopic dermatitis (DERMATITIS, ATOPIC).

The widespread involvement of the skin by a scaly, erythematous dermatitis occurring either as a secondary or reactive process to an underlying cutaneous disorder (e.g., atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, etc.), or as a primary or idiopathic disease. It is often associated with the loss of hair and nails, hyperkeratosis of the palms and soles, and pruritus. (From Dorland, 27th ed)

Antigens from the house dust mites (DERMATOPHAGOIDES), mainly D. farinae and D. pteronyssinus. They are proteins, found in mite feces or mite extracts, that can cause ASTHMA and other allergic diseases such as perennial rhinitis (RHINITIS, ALLERGIC, PERENNIAL) and atopic dermatitis (DERMATITIS, ATOPIC). More than 11 groups of Dermatophagoides ALLERGENS have been defined. Group I allergens, such as Der f I and Der p I from the above two species, are among the strongest mite immunogens in humans.

A STEROID with GLUCOCORTICOID RECEPTOR activity that is used to manage the symptoms of ASTHMA; ALLERGIC RHINITIS, and ATOPIC DERMATITIS.

Rare autosomal recessive disease with variable expressions. Clinical features of the disease include variable ICHTHYOSIFORM ERYTHRODERMA, CONGENITAL; bamboo hair (trichorrhexis invaginata); and ATOPIC DERMATITIS. The disease is caused by mutations in the SPINK5 gene.
