Abstract:

Full Citation: "This clinical study was conducted to determine the efficacy and safety of Reliéva cream in adult patients with atopic dermatitis (eczema). This was an open-label trial in 42 patients with atopic dermatitis treated for 12 weeks with Reliéva cream (a homeopathic product containing Psorberine, a proprietary Mahonia aquifolium extract). Efficacy and safety was assessed using Eczema Area and Severity Index scores and a Subject Reported Evaluation of Treatment. The results showed significant (P < 0.05) improvements with respect to Eczema Area and Severity Index scores by comparison to subjects' baseline scores. In addition, subjects responding to a posttreatment evaluation questionnaire indicated a substantial benefit when rating effectiveness, itching, and appearance as a result of using the study preparation. Reliéva cream appears to be a safe and effective treatment for adult patients with atopic dermatitis (eczema)."
