Eczema Prevention Study


Brief description of study

The purpose of this study is to determine whether early use of a bland emollient in newborns, prior to the clinical signs of skin disease, will delay the onset or prevent the development of atopic dermatitis.

Detailed Study Description

All neonates will be treated with Cetaphil cream starting within 1 week of birth. All neonates enrolled will have an increased risk of developing atopic dermatitis because they have a family history of either asthma, hay fever, or atopic dermatitis. These neonates will then be followed for 2 years for the signs and symptoms of atopic dermatitis.

Clinical Study Identifier: NCT00806221
