Clobetasol propionate, 0.05%, vs hydrocortisone, 1%, for alopecia areata in children: a randomized clinical trial. [2014]
IMPORTANCE: Alopecia areata is an idiopathic cause of hair loss with limited therapeutic repertoire. OBJECTIVE: To compare the efficacy and safety of a high- vs low-potency topical corticosteroid in pediatric patients...

Randomized, double-blind, split-side, comparison study of moisturizer containing licochalcone A and 1% hydrocortisone in the treatment of childhood atopic dermatitis. [2013]
CONCLUSION: Lic A had a similar result in terms of SCORAD compared to 1%

Randomized, double-blind, split-side comparison study of moisturizer containing licochalcone vs. 1% hydrocortisone in the treatment of infantile seborrhoeic dermatitis. [2012]
hydrocortisone for the treatment of ISD... CONCLUSION: Moisturizer containing 0.025% licochalcone had higher cure rate

Single-blind, randomized controlled trial evaluating the treatment of facial seborrheic dermatitis with hydrocortisone 1% ointment compared with tacrolimus 0.1% ointment in adults. [2011.11.17]
BACKGROUND: Tacrolimus is a topical calcineurin inhibitor with immunomodulatory, anti-inflammatory, and fungicidal properties that may be beneficial in the treatment of facial seborrheic dermatitis. OBJECTIVES: We sought to compare the efficacy and safety of tacrolimus with standard corticosteroid treatment in adults with facial seborrheic dermatitis in a phase II, single-blind, randomized controlled trial... CONCLUSION: Tacrolimus 0.1% ointment required significantly fewer applications compared with hydrocortisone 1% ointment to achieve a comparable clinical response in adults with facial seborrheic dermatitis. Tacrolimus was generally well tolerated. Copyright (c) 2011 American Academy of Dermatology, Inc. Published by Mosby, Inc. All rights reserved.

Comparable efficacy of a topical 0.0584% hydrocortisone aceponate spray and oral ciclosporin in treating canine atopic dermatitis. [2011.07.01]
This study compared the efficacy of a 0.0584% hydrocortisone aceponate (HCA) spray (Cortavance((R)) ; Virbac SA) and ciclosporin (Atopica((R)) ; Novartis Animal Health) in canine atopic dermatitis in a single-blind randomized controlled trial.

Clinical Trials Related to Carmol HC (Hydrocortisone Topical)

Dose-Response Curve: Interventions to Prevent and Treat Radiodermatitis [Recruiting]
Dose response curve to define the security and tolerable dose to be used for prevention and treatment of radiodermatitis in patients with breast or head and neck cancer.

Study to Evaluate 13 C Isotope Ratio Measurement for Urea Cycle Capacity Assessment [Completed]
In this short-term study a method for the evaluation of the metabolic competency of the urea cycle in vivo will be assessed. In order to monitor the efficacy of new treatment options for patients with urea cycle disorders and to monitor the severity of the disease, a reliable and safe quantitative method for the measurement of the urea cycle flux is required. Urea synthesis will be evaluated by administering sodium [1-13C]-acetate and measuring subsequent incorporation of [13C] label from Na-acetate into urea in healthy volunteers and asymptomatic subjects genetically disposed to urea cycle disorders.

Study in Healthy Subjects, Patients With Urea Cycle Disorders (UCD) and Carriers of UCD Mutations to Evaluate Urea Cycle Function [Completed]
This diagnostic study will be performed to investigate the performance of the urea cycle in healthy subjects, asymptomatic carriers of Urea Cycle Disorders (UCD) mutations and subjects with genetically proven urea cycle disorders. The ureagenesis rate will be measured by 13C incorporation assay, a method for in vivo measurement of urea cycle performance with stable isotopes.

Vaginal Fluid Wash in Pre-labour Rupture of Membranes [Recruiting]
The investigators assess in this study the sensitivity of Urea and Creatinine and that of Nitrazine test in vaginal wash after injecting saline in the vagina of patients with pre-labour rupture of membranes

Evaluation of Therapeutic Efficacy in Use of Chamomilla Gel, Chamomilla Infuse and Urea in Radiodermatitis [Not yet recruiting]
This study aims to evaluate therapeutics interventions in radiodermatitis in patients with breast or head and neck cancer. The data collect is going to begin after determining the better dose in a dose-response curve that is being conduct now in the same institution. To evaluate the skin reaction will be applied scale of the Radiation Therapy Oncology Group

(RTOG) - Acute Radiation Morbidity Scoring Criteria, Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse

Events (CTCAE) and Radiation-Induced Skin Reaction Assessment Scale (RISRAS).
