Comparing Sansrosa to Finacea for Redness

Galderma are surely confirming that the development of Sansrosa 0.5% Gel (CD07805/47) is nearing completion, with the posting of a proposed comparison trial with Finacea.

The trial NCT01659853 will compare how effective Sansrosa is compared to Finacea. The primary outcome will be to assess, after 15 days, an improvement in facial redness. The secondary outcome will be an assessment of the reduction in redness 30 minutes after the treatment is applied.

A swap over will occur after 15 days of the first trial, where those in the experimental arm will join the active comparator arm, in order to be able to show that the active ingredient in Sansrosa in able to be convincingly compared to Finacea Gel.

The trial is to be conducted at 2 sites in Kentucky and Texas.

Can I Join The Trial?

To be included in the trial subjects need to have been diagnosed with facial rosacea, and have moderate to severe erythema (redness). Subjects should not have any papules or pustules, or only mild lesions.

The primary contact is listed as Jay H Mashburn, PhD, 817-961-5027, jay.mashburn@galderma.com

Efficacy and Safety Study Comparing CD07805/47 Gel 0.5% to Azelaic Acid Gel 15% in Subjects With Erythema of Rosacea

Estimated Enrollment: 70

Study Start Date: September 2012

Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2012

The purpose of this study is to compare the efficacy and assess the safety of CD07805/47 gel 0.5% applied topically once daily versus azelaic acid gel 15% applied topically twice daily in subjects with moderate to severe facial erythema of rosacea.

Primary Outcome Measures

  • Composite Success [ Time Frame: Baseline to Day 15 (15 days)

    Composite Success, defined as an improvement on both the clinician’s and subject’s erythema assessments at the end of each treatment period

Secondary Outcome Measures

  • Onset of Action [ Time Frame: 30 minutes post baseline treatment application ]

    Onset of action, defined as an improvement on both the clinician’s and subject’s erythema assessments at 30 minutes post baseline application

Experimental Arm

Experimental: CD07805/47 gel 0.5%/CD07805/47 Vehicle

Subjects who will receive CD07805/47 gel 0.5% and CD07805/47 gel vehicle during Period 1 (baseline to Day 15) per subject’s randomization scheme will switch treatment arms in Period 2. Subjects who do not receive CD07805/47 gel 0.5% and CD07805/47 gel vehicle during Period 1 will receive CD07805/47 gel 0.5% and CD07805/47 gel vehicle in Period 2 (baseline to Day 15).

Active Comparator Arm

Comparitor: azelaic acid gel 15%

Subjects who will receive azelaic acid gel 15% during Period 1 (baseline to Day 15) per subject’s randomization scheme will switch treatment arms in Period 2. Subjects who do not receive azelaic acid gel 15% during Period 1 will receive azelaic acid gel 15% in Period 2 (baseline to Day 15).

    I would think it would be no comparision, Sansrosa should be much more efficient at reducing redness.

  2. David Pascoe says:

    You would think so.

    I wonder if the real aim is to be able to show that Sansrosa is the most effective redness treatment available – and base marketing material on that fact?

  3. DukeCity says:

    Yes could be, now if we can only get a release date…

    God help us if it isnt better than finacea at improving redness that stuff is pretty much useless.Its been soooo long in the waiting.Wonder if it will be released into Australia?

    I suspect the study is only for the purpose of marketing Sansrosa in the future. “In a recent study, Sanasrosa is shown to…”

    I use Finacia every day and I can’t say it’s had any impact on my redness but it worked wonders on with my P&Ps – I may get one every three months.

    I also wanted to share my success with IPL and PDL treatments. I have seen about an overall 70% – 80% improvement with some days and weeks better than others. My redness and burning was so severe and I think I was about 2 years ways from being unable to function.

    I am hoping with continued laser treatments once or twice a year AND Sansrosa maybe I can finally take a trip without having to pack my fan. 🙂
