A Pilot Multicenter Field Study of a Novel Oral Therapeutic in Dogs with Moderate-to-Severe Canine Atopic Dermatitis
Dermatology for Animals is currently enrolling cases in a nationwide clinical trial to evaluate novel therapeutic designed to inhibit inflammation in dogs with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis. The study is designed to assess the benefit after a course of prednisone or independently.
CLINICAL STUDY DETAILS
An estimated 55 client-owned dogs will be enrolled in this study. At enrollment, dogs will be randomized 4:1 prednisone to study drug. Those dogs randomized to receive prednisone will then be randomized again at Day 14 if pruritus and skin lesions caused by atopy have improved adequately. The veterinary dermatologist, and dog owner, will be masked to treatment group assignment. Study visits are required every 2 weeks for one month, and then monthly thereafter. The study duration is 4 months; however, if the dog does not respond to prednisone treatment or experiences a flare of atopic dermatitis after enrollment, the dog may be removed from study.
