About

This is a single site, randomized, open-label comparison pilot study to assess the feasibility and effectiveness of KeraStat Cream compared with routine skin care (RSC) in managing radiotherapy-induced early adverse skin reaction (EASR) in patients undergoing radiotherapy to the head and/or neck. Hypothesis: The use of KeraStat Cream in patients receiving radiotherapy for head and neck is feasible, tolerable, and reduces the severity of early adverse skin reaction in the treated region of interest.

Full description

Primary Objective(s) • To determine the feasibility of the use of KeraStat Cream in patients receiving radiotherapy for head and neck cancer. Secondary Objective(s) To determine the tolerability of KeraStat Cream in patients receiving radiotherapy for head and neck cancer compared to routine skin care. To assess the effectiveness of KeraStat Cream in reducing the severity of EASR in patients receiving radiotherapy for head and neck cancer, compared to routine skin care. This will be performed by evaluating: Objective evaluation of EASR using the CTCAE Version 5.0 scale of radiation dermatitis, Patient-reported outcomes of radiation dermatitis using the PRO-CTCAE version 1.0, and Dermatologic-specific quality of life assessment To estimate the amount of KeraStat Cream used per patient and coverage on the skin.
