About the DECOLAD Phase I Study
The DECOLAD Phase I study assessed overall safety, local tolerability, pharmacokinetics (PK) in three dermal formulations of ATx201 and was a prospective, randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled study in 36 healthy subjects. Subjects were treated at four separate skin areas, 5 cm in diameter, twice daily with either ATx201 or placebo in a 7-day period. The pharmacokinetic analysis involved blood samples in order to evaluate the systemic exposure and skin biopsies to assess local exposure to the skin. The study was conducted by the Department of Clinical Pharmacology, Medical University of Vienna, Austria.
