SIDE EFFECTS

Clinical Trial Experience

In 2 multicenter vehicle-controlled clinical trials of once-daily application of CUTIVATE® Lotion by 196 adult and 242 pediatric patients, the total incidence of adverse reactions considered drug related by investigators was approximately 4%. Events were local cutaneous events, usually mild and self-limiting, and consisted primarily of burning/stinging (2%). All other drug-related events occurred with an incidence of less than 1%, and inclusively were contact dermatitis, exacerbation of atopic dermatitis, folliculitis of legs, pruritus, pustules on arm, rash, and skin infection.

The incidence of drug-related events on drug compared to vehicle (4% and 5%, respectively) was similar. The incidence of drug-related events between study populations of 242 pediatric patients (age 3 months to < 17 years) and 196 adult patients (17 years or older) (4% and 5%, respectively) was also similar.

In an open-label study of 44 pediatric patients applying CUTIVATE® Lotion to at least 35% of body surface area twice daily for 3 or 4 weeks, the overall incidence of drug-related adverse events was 14%. Events were local, cutaneous, and inclusively were dry skin (7%), stinging at application site (5%), and excoriation (2%).

During the clinical trials, eczema herpeticum occurred in a 33-year-old male patient treated with CUTIVATE® Lotion. Additionally, a 4-month-old patient treated with CUTIVATE® Lotion in the open-label trial had marked elevations of the hepatic enzymes AST and ALT.

Post Marketing Experience

Systemic adverse events with CUTIVATE® Cream and CUTIVATE® Ointment have included: immunosuppression/Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia/leukopenia/thrombocytopenia; hyperglycemia/ glycosuria; Cushing syndrome; generalized body edema/blurred vision; and acute urticarial reaction (edema, urticaria, pruritus, and throat swelling).

The following localized adverse reactions have been reported during post approval use of CUTIVATE® Lotion: erythema, edema/swelling, bleeding, and a reported lack of efficacy.

Because these reactions are reported voluntarily from a population of uncertain size, it is not always possible to reliably estimate their frequency or establish a causal relationship to drug exposure.
