Purpose:

This study is designed as a prospective, randomized, double-blind right/left comparison of Epikeia coatings to improve hand dermatitis.


Study summary:

Hand dermatitis was chosen for investigation due to high incidence and typical symmetrical involvement that allows for right/left treatment comparisons. Hand dermatitis is also important due to its implication on healthcare workers in particular, where frequent hand washing and chronic occlusion from gloving, provide a route for skin sensitization to natural rubber latex proteins increase the risk of colonization of microorganisms on the skin, and thereby increase the likelihood of contact dermatitis. This feasibility study will be performed to evaluate the efficacy of PVDF coatings in treating chronic hand dermatitis.


Criteria:

Inclusion Criteria: Subjects must meet the following inclusion criteria: 1. 18 years of age or older; 2. have mild to moderate hand dermatitis, according to Investigator Global Assessment (see below); 3. be generally healthy, as determined by brief medical history; 4. have a negative urine test for pregnancy if female, and use of highly effective method of birth control, such as condoms & spermacide, implants, injectables, combined oral contraceptives, intrauterine device (IUD's), sexual abstinence, or a vasectomized partner.
