Unverified Answer

Have there been other clinical trials involving tapinarof cream, 1%?

"Tapinarof has been studied in a double-blind, randomized clinical trial and a prospective study. These trials are not double-blinded studies because individuals receiving the tapinarof cream were aware of their treatment assignment. For the first trial, the investigators included the placebo control arm for the primary endpoint; for the second trial, the investigators excluded the placebo control arm. These trials indicated that tapinarof has no effect on either the severity or disease status of Eczema, atopic dermatitis, atopic eczema of infancy, or atopic dermatitis of infancy. The studies were also not limited to infants only. Tapinarof application may be beneficial in children and adults." - Anonymous Online Contributor

"There have been very few new discoveries since 1990. There was one new drug that was successful against eczema. The treatments for eczema that have been developed do not represent a perfect solution because of insufficient knowledge, the problem that most people in the field share about the diseases pathophysiology (aetiology) still needs to be solved because currently available drugs have no benefit for all of those who suffer from eczema." - Anonymous Online Contributor
