Summary

We propose an open, prospective, multi-center Phase III study to evaluate the diagnostic performance and safety of seven new T. R.U. E. Test allergens: Gold sodium thiosulfate, Hydrocortisone-17-butyrate, Bacitracin, Parthenolide, Methyldibromoglutaronitrile, Disperse blue 106, and Bronopol. Allergen performance and safety will be evaluated in adult patients with suspected contact dermatitis, and in adult patients with a known or suspected sensitization to at least one of the seven allergens.

Clinical Details

Official title: Clinical Evaluation of T.R.U.E. TEST Panel 3.2 Allergens: Gold Sodium Thiosulfate, Hydrocortisone-17-Butyrate, Methyldibromoglutaronitrile, Bacitracin, Parthenolide, Disperse Blue 106, and Bronopol

Study design: Allocation: Non-Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Diagnostic

Primary outcome: The performance of each allergen will be evaluated based on: Calculating concordance/discordance between T.R.U.E. Test Panel 3.2 allergens and their corresponding petrolatum or aqueous-based allergens and calculated sensitivity and specificity.

Secondary outcome: Evaluations will be based on: Frequency and characterization of late and/or persistent reactions, tape-induced irritation, incomplete panel adhesion, and subject-reported sensations of itching or burning and the frequency of adverse events.

Detailed description: Primary endpoint: The performance (efficacy) of each allergen will be evaluated in adult patients with suspected contact dermatitis, and in adult patients with a known or suspected sensitization to at least one of the seven allergens. Performance will be based on:

- Calculated concordance/discordance between T. R.U. E. Test Panel 3. 2 allergens and their

corresponding petrolatum or aqueous-based allergens.

- Calculated sensitivity and specificity for T. R.U. E. Test Panel 3. 2 allergens.

Secondary endpoint: To evaluate the safety of seven T. R.U. E. Test Panels 3. 2 allergens (Gold sodium thiosulfate, Hydrocortisone-17-butyrate, Methyldibromoglutaronitrile, Bacitracin, Parthenolide, Disperse blue 106 and Bronopol) in adult subjects with suspected contact dermatitis ("consecutives"), and/or in adult subjects with a clinical history of contact dermatitis and a current or previous positive patch test to one (or more) of these 7 allergens ("sensitives"). Evaluations will be based on:

- The frequency and characterization of late and/or persistent reactions, tape-induced

irritation at the test site, incomplete panel adhesion, and subject-reported sensations of itching or burning during the test period.

- The frequency of adverse events and serious adverse events.
