(Zoryve) is currently approved by the FDA for the topical treatment of plaque psoriasis, including intertriginous areas, in patients 12 years of age and older. Submission of the sNDA is based on positive results from the Interventional Trial Evaluating Roflumilast Cream for the Treatment of Atopic Dermatitis ( and ) trials; two identical Phase 3, vehicle-controlled trials in which roflumilast cream 0.15% or vehicle was applied once daily for 4 weeks to individuals 6 years of age and older with mild to moderate AD involving at least 3% body surface area. Roflumilast is a phosphodiesterase-4 (PDE-4) inhibitor.
According tofrom Arcutis, both studies met the primary endpoint of IGA Success, which was defined as a validated Investigator Global Assessment – Atopic Dermatitis (vIGA-AD) score of ‘clear’ or ‘almost clear’ plus a 2-grade improvement from baseline at week 4. In INTEGUMENT-1 this endpoint was achieved by 32.0% of subjects in the roflumilast cream group vs. 15.2% of those in the vehicle group (P < .0001). In INTEGUMENT-2, this endpoint was achieved by 28.9% of subjects in the roflumilast cream group vs. 12.0% of those in the vehicle group (P < .0001). The most common adverse reactions based on data from the combined trials were headache (2.9%), nausea (1.9%), application-site pain (1.5%), diarrhea (1.5%), and vomiting (1.5%).
