EUCRISA Adverse Reactions (crisaborole)


6.1 Clinical Trials Experience

Because clinical trials are conducted under widely varying conditions, adverse reaction rates observed in the clinical trials of a drug cannot be directly compared to rates in the clinical trials of another drug and may not reflect the rates observed in practice.

In two double-blind, vehicle-controlled clinical trials (Trial 1 and Trial 2), 1012 subjects 2 to 79 years of age with mild to moderate atopic dermatitis were treated with EUCRISA twice daily for 4 weeks. The adverse reaction reported by ≥1% of EUCRISA-treated subjects is listed in Table 1.

Less common (<1%) adverse reactions in subjects treated with EUCRISA included contact urticaria [see Warnings and Precautions (5.1)].

In one double-blind, vehicle-controlled trial including an initial open-label period (Trial 3), 497 subjects 3 months of age and older with mild to moderate atopic dermatitis received EUCRISA twice daily for up to 8 weeks. This was followed by a double-blind period, during which 135 subjects out of 270 randomized subjects received EUCRISA and 135 subjects received vehicle once daily for 52 weeks or until they developed a flare. The adverse reactions observed in the open-label period were similar to the known safety profile of twice daily treatment with EUCRISA. The adverse reactions observed with once daily treatment were similar to vehicle [see Clinical Studies (14)].

6.2 Postmarketing Experience

The following adverse reactions have been identified during postapproval use of EUCRISA. 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:

Skin and Subcutaneous: allergic contact dermatitis
