There is an unsatisfied medical need for a first-line treatment of proliferating IHs with a good benefit/risk profile. Based on the recent findings of encouraging results obtained with propranolol in a series of infants with severe Infantile Hemangioma (IH), propranolol is expected to be of significant benefit in the management of the condition. The present study has been designed to confirm efficacy of propranolol in severe IH by demonstrating superiority over placebo and to document the safety profile of propranolol in this indication.
Primary objective The primary objective of this study is to identify the appropriate dose and duration of propranolol treatment and demonstrate its superiority over placebo based on the complete/nearly complete resolution of target IH at W24.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Placebo Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Treatment

A widely used non-cardioselective beta-adrenergic antagonist. Propranolol has been used for MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION; ARRHYTHMIA; ANGINA PECTORIS; HYPERTENSION; HYPERTHYROIDISM; MIGRAINE; PHEOCHROMOCYTOMA; and ANXIETY but adverse effects instigate replacement by newer drugs.
A benign neoplasm of pneumocytes, cells of the PULMONARY ALVEOLI. Originally considered to be vascular in origin, it is now classified as an epithelial tumor with several elements, including solid cellular areas, papillary structure, sclerotic regions, and dilated blood-filled spaces resembling HEMANGIOMA.
A dull red, firm, dome-shaped hemangioma, sharply demarcated from surrounding skin, usually located on the head and neck, which grows rapidly and generally undergoes regression and involution without scarring. It is caused by proliferation of immature capillary vessels in active stroma, and is usually present at birth or occurs within the first two or three months of life. (Dorland, 27th ed)
