Pimecrolimus, a new, non-steroid, inflammatory-cytokine inhibitor, has been shown to prevent progression to flare in atopic dermatitis (AD) and to improve long-term disease control when applied as a 1% cream. In this 6-month, open-label, multinational study, 177 infants aged 3-23 months and 489 children aged 2-17 years, with mild to severe AD, were included. The study was designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of pimecrolimus cream 1% used as a first-line treatment.
