Safety and Efficacy Study of Altabax Ointment in the Treatment of Secondarily Infected Atopic Dermatitis

2014-08-27 03:16:02 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Skin infections may complicate the treatment of atopic dermatitis.The use of topical ointments has become very important to avoid the use of oral antibiotics. There is little supporting literature regarding the use of topical antibiotics in secondarily infected atopic dermatitis.

This study will investigate the safety and effectiveness of Altabax ointment use in treating secondarily infected atopic dermatitis caused by Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococcus pyogenes.

Description

Atopic dermatitis patients are commonly secondarily infected with Staphylococcus aureus and/or Streptococcus pyogenes, more recently with Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), due to impaired barrier function. As cutaneous infections such as MRSA and others may complicate the treatment of atopic dermatitis, the use of topical antibiotics have become very important to avoid oral antibiotics and their side effects, especially in the pediatric population.

The current study will investigate the safety and efficacy of Altabax ointment use for treatment of secondarily infected lesions caused by Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococcus pyogenes in both the pediatric and adult populations.

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.
