121. FDA Approves New Treatment For Eczema
The Food abd Drug Adminsitration approved a new treatment for atopicdermatitis (eczema).
FDA Talk Papers are prepared by the Press Office to guide FDA personnel in responding with consistency and accuracy to questions from the public on subjects of current interest. Talk Papers are subject to change as more information becomes available. Print Media: 301-827-6242 December 8, 2000 Consumer Inquiries: 888-INFO-FDA
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) today approved a new treatment for atopic dermatitis (eczema) - a non-contagious skin condition that can cause redness, itching and oozing lesions. The drug is Protopic (tacrolimus) Ointment (0.1% and 0.03% for adults and 0.03% for children 2 years and older). The drug is for patients with moderate to severe eczema, for whom standard eczema therapies are deemed inadvisable because of potential risks, or who are not adequately treated by or who are intolerant of standard eczema therapies. FDA based its approval on the results of three 12- week studies which indicated that 28-37% of patients using Protopic experienced greater than or equal to 90% improvement of their skin condition, as measured by physicians, and two one year studies that indicated that the drug is safe for intermittent long term use. Common side effects associated with this drug include temporary stinging or burning sensations where the drug is applied, which may lessen if the diseased skin heals. There was evidence from an animal study that Protopic Ointment may accentuate the adverse effects of ultraviolet light on the skin. Therefore, it is important that patients avoid sunlight and sun lamps, tanning beds, and treatment with UVA or UVB light. Patients who need to be outdoors after applying Protopic should wear loose fitting clothing that protects the treated area from the sun. In addition, patients should ask their health care providers what other type of protection from the sun to use.

FDA Issues Public Health Advisory Informing Health Care Providers of Safety Concerns Associated with the Use of Two Eczema Drugs, Elidel and Protopic
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) today advised health care professionals to prescribe Elidel (pimecrolimus) and Protopic (tacrolimus) only as directed and only after other eczema treatments have failed to work because of a potential cancer risk associated with their use. In addition, FDA is adding a black box warning to the health professional label for the two products and developing a Medication Guide for patients.
  • Elidel and Protopic are approved for short-term and intermittent treatment of atopic dermatitis (eczema) in patients unresponsive to, or intolerant of other treatments. Elidel and Protopic are not approved for use in children younger than 2 years old. The long-term effect of Elidel and Protopic on the developing immune system in infants and children is not known. In clinical trials, infants and children younger than 2 years of age treated with Elidel had a higher rate of upper respiratory infections than those treated with placebo cream. Elidel and Protopic should be used only for short periods of time, not continuously. The long term safety of these products is unknown.

What is eczema?
Eczema, also known as dermatitis, is a very common skin disorder. It is characterised by itchiness (pruritus), redness (erythema), and tiny blisters (vesiculation) that appear in patches and plaques on the skin surface. The severity of eczema can vary widely. In severe cases, the skin may crack, weep and bleed and may become infected. Long standing eczema is often dry and causes thick scaling of the skin (lichenification). Although it can look unpleasant, eczema is not contagious; you cannot contract eczema by touching someone who has it.
What causes eczema?
There are several different types of eczema. While many types of eczema are similar to look at, each type has different triggers.
  • Atopic eczema is the commonest type of eczema. It is a genetic condition; in 70 percent of cases there will be a family history of eczema, hayfever or asthma. Atopic eczema is characterised by dry, itchy skin. It usually begins in infancy and can often affect the whole body, including the head and face. In more than 50 percent of cases the eczema will persist into adult life. Flare-ups can occur in response to environmental allergens such as house dust mites, animal fur, pollens, microbes and pollutants. Emotional stress and anxiety may also cause the eczema to worsen periodically.

eczema usually improves in the sun, especially on holiday. It is important thatchildren with eczema keep cool in the hot weather and wear loose cotton
by Doctor John Harper MD FRCP, Consultant in Paediatric Dermatology Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children, NHS Trust, London WC1 3JH PREFACE
The purpose of this information is to answer those questions which are most commonly asked by parents of children with eczema. I hope that this information is useful and that these suggestions will benefit your child. Regular daily skin care is essential. It is important to remember that the long-term outlook is usually excellent. WHAT IS ECZEMA?
The word eczema comes from the ancient Greek meaning "to boil over". It is used to describe an inflammation of the skin, which causes redness and intense itching. The most common type of eczema in children is atopic eczema , which may be associated with asthma or hayfever. The terms 'atopic eczema' and 'atopic dermatitis' mean the same thing and should not be confused. WHY DOES MY CHILD HAVE ECZEMA?
Atopic eczema is essentially a genetic disorder. Often there is someone else in the family with eczema, asthma or hayfever, but this not always the case. There are many external factors which may influence eczema on a day to day basis. These are discussed in more detail later on. WILL MY CHILD GROW OUT OF ECZEMA?

Atopic Eczema - An Overview
Atopic eczema is an inflammation of the skin which tends to flare-up from time to time. It usually starts in early childhood. There is no 'cure', but treatment can usually control or ease symptoms. Emollients (moisturisers) and steroid creams or ointments are the common treatments. About 2 in 3 children with eczema 'grow out of it' by their mid teens.
What is atopic eczema? Eczema is sometimes called dermatitis which means 'inflammation of the skin'. There are different types of eczema. The most common type is atopic eczema. In this type of eczema there is a typical pattern of skin inflammation which causes the symptoms. The word 'atopic' describes people with certain 'allergic' tendencies. However, atopic eczema is not just a simple allergic condition. People with atopic eczema have an increased chance of developing other 'atopic' conditions such as asthma and hay fever. What are the symptoms of atopic eczema?
  • The skin usually feels dry.
  • Some areas of the skin become red and inflamed. The most common areas affected are next to skin creases such as the front of the elbows and wrists, backs of knees, and around the neck. However, any areas of skin may be affected. The face is a commonly affected in babies.
  • Inflamed skin is itchy. If you scratch a lot it may cause patches of skin to become thickened.

Atopic dermatitis is a form of eczema that is most prevalent during infancy and childhood (paediatric cases: 80% by 1 year of age, 95% by years). The estimated incidence of atopic eczema in the general population varies between 1% and 5%. Over the past few decades there has been a steady increase worldwide in the incidence of this disorder. Pathogenesis Top The exact pathogenesis of atopic dermatitis is unknown. Currently, it is believed that IgE-mediated reactions and cellular responses contribute to the chronic inflammation of this disorder. Atopic eczema typically runs a chronic course with exacerbations and remissions. A variety of 'trigger factors' may exacerbate eczema: irritants (e.g. soap, harsh chemicals), heat and humidity, stress and anxiety, certain foods, inhalant allergens and certain infections. Eggs, milk, wheat, soya protein and peanut

Revised: April 2003 Handout on Health: Atopic Dermatitis This booklet is for people who have atopic dermatitis (often called "eczema"), parents and caregivers of children with atopic dermatitis, and others interested in learning more about the disease. The booklet describes the disease and its symptoms and contains information about diagnosis and treatment as well as current research efforts supported by the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS) and other components of the Department of Health and Human Services' National Institutes of Health (NIH). It also discusses issues such as skin care and quality of life for people with atopic dermatitis. If you have further questions after reading this booklet, you may wish to discuss them with your doctor or your child's pediatrician. Defining Atopic Dermatitis Atopic dermatitis is a chronic (long-lasting) disease that affects the skin. It is not contagious; it cannot be passed from one person to another. The word "dermatitis" means inflammation of the skin. "Atopic" refers to a group of diseases where there is often an inherited tendency to develop other allergic conditions, such as asthma and hay fever. In atopic dermatitis, the skin becomes extremely itchy. Scratching leads to redness, swelling, cracking, "weeping" clear fluid, and finally, crusting and scaling. In most cases, there are periods of time when the disease is worse (called exacerbations or flares) followed by periods when the skin improves or clears up entirely (called remissions). As some children with atopic dermatitis grow older, their skin disease improves or disappears altogether, although their skin often remains dry and easily irritated. In others, atopic dermatitis continues to be a significant problem in adulthood.

  • Dry, extremely itchy skin Blisters with oozing and crusting  Redness of the skin around the blisters Raw areas of the skin from scratching which may even lead to bleeding Dry, leathery areas with more or less pigment than their normal skin tone (called lichenification)
Eczema in children under 2 years old generally begins on the cheeks, elbows, or knees. In adults, it tends to be located on the inside surfaces of the knees and elbows. Causes The cause of eczema is thought to be a combination of hereditary (genetic) and environmental factors. This means that factors such as allergies can cause eczema in susceptible people. Exposure to certain irritants and allergens (see Lifestyle section for further definition of these substances) in the environment can worsen symptoms as can dryness of the skin, exposure to water, temperature changes, and stress.

Terminology ECZEMA: Use as a clinical descriptive term, it describe a process that is clearly superficial in form and that, early, is erythematous, papulo-vesicular, oozing and crusting and, later, red-purple, scaly, lichenified and possibly pigmented. Epithelial disruption and non-sharp margination are its characteristics. ECZEMA can be defined histologically by the presence of a predominantly lymphohistiocytic infiltrate around the upper dermal blood vessels, associated with varying degrees of spongiosis and acanthosis. The terms 'ECZEMA' and 'DERMATITIS' are regarded as synonymous. 1.2. Table 1: Stages of Eczematous Inflammation
