To demonstrate the effectiveness of DEXERYL Emollient Cream in reducing the severity of ichthyosis.
Phase III, international, multicentre, randomised, controlled, double-blind, parallel-group study: Dexeryl versus vehicle (placebo).
231 children included with an average age of 8.3 years, suffering from a non-bullous form of ichthyosis: ichthyosis vulgaris (63.2%), X-linked recessive (14.7%), other (22.1%).
2 applications daily.
12 weeks (4-week double-blind period with Dexeryl Cream or vehicle) followed by an open-label period with all patients treated with Dexeryl Cream (for 8 weeks).
Improvement of ichthyosis by monitoring the evolution of skin xerosis via the SRRC* score : percentage of patients with a 50% reduction in SRRC score at D28.
Pruritus: assessed using a visual analogue scale (VAS). Global assessment (hydration capacity, improvement of perspiration): performed by each investigator and patient.
Twice-daily application of DEXERYL cream to the skin of children for 3 months did not induce any systemic or local adverse effects. DEXERYL cream has, therefore, proven to be safe and has a good tolerance profile.
