Roflumilast cream (ARQ-151) is being investigated for the treatment of atopic dermatitis.
Roflumilast cream is uniquely formulated as an emollient, water-based (~48% water) cream without fragrances, propylene glycol, isopropyl alcohol, or ethanol. It contains a novel emulsifier designed to maintain epidermal intercellular lipids and is adjusted to a stratum corneum pH at which the skin normally functions. Ongoing clinical trials are investigating roflumilast cream 0.15% and 0.05% in patients with atopic dermatitis.
*In vitro data. Clinical efficacy claims cannot be made.
