This is a double-blind, randomized, vehicle controlled Phase 3 study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of topical tapinarof cream, 1% compared to vehicle control cream in pediatric and adult subjects with atopic dermatitis.


This study is a 8-week double-blind, vehicle-controlled treatment study in which subjects will be randomized to receive tapinarof cream, 1% or vehicle cream once daily for 8 weeks. At the end of the 8-week study treatment, qualified subjects will have the option to enroll in an open-label, long-term extension study for an additional 48 weeks of treatment. Subjects who do not participate in the open-label, long-term extension study will complete a follow-up visit approximately one week after the end of treatment in this study.
