Outcomes
Primary outcome [1] 279859 0
To assess the systemic safety and local tolerability of AN2728 Topical Ointment, 2% and vehicle ointment in sensitive areas of healthy volunteers.
Timepoint [1] 279859 0
At baseline and at Day 3, 7, 10, 14, 17 and 22 after starting AN2728 Topical Ointment, 2% or Vehicle Ointment. The outcomes will be assessed by treatment area focused examinations by a medical officer at each timepoint. Tolerability will be assessed by grading of local tolerability symptoms such as burning/stinging, pruritis and erythema according to a scale (0=None; 1=mild; 2=moderate; 3=severe; 0.5, 1.5 are 2.5 are midpoints between the defined grades).

Summary
Brief summary
The aim of this study is to assess the local tolerability of an experimental ointment called AN2728. This ointment has been tested in 11 clinical trials to date, and is being developed as a treatment for patients with psoriasis. In the laboratory this ointment has been shown to reduce inflammatory chemicals in the body that are involved in inflammatory skin diseases.
This study will help doctors find out how well people will tolerate the application of the ointment to sensitive areas in terms of any local reaction (ie. irritation, redness, itchiness). Participant's skin will be monitored closely at various times throughout the study to assess any effect that the drug has on their skin.
