PETALUMA, Calif., Sept. 27, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Oculus Innovative Sciences, Inc. (Nasdaq:OCLS), today announced publication of an open-label pilot study in which a Microcyn® Technology-based antipruritic hydrogel was evaluated in the treatment of atopic dermatitis. The study, appearing in the August 2012 issue of Cutis ( 2012;90:97-102), evaluated the effectiveness of Microcyn-based Atrapro™ antipruritic hydrogel in reducing the itch and clinical signs of atopic dermatitis when applied to affected areas of the body at least three times daily. A reduction in itch as early as day 3 was reported by 14 of 17 patients. At day 14 (end of the study), 82% and 88% of subjects experienced itch reduction according to patient and investigator assessments, respectively. By day 14 the overall body surface area of disease involvement was reduced on average by 58% from the baseline. This impact on the overall disease was also confirmed by the overall global assessment of the atopic dermatitis by the doctor. Mild dryness encountered by some patients readily resolved with emollient use.
