This clinical trial studies menadione topical lotion in treating skin discomfort and psychological distress in patients with cancer receiving panitumumab, erlotinib hydrochloride, or cetuximab. Menadione topical lotion may prevent rash or other skin discomfort and help alleviate psychological distress and pain in patients receiving treatment with panitumumab, erlotinib hydrochloride, or cetuximab
|Intervention model||parallel assignment|
Cutaneous discomfort as measured by the face pain scale question. Descriptive statistics and longitudinal plots will be used for summarizing cutaneous discomfort.
time frame: Weekly during the 4-week treatment period
Adverse event profile of a topical menadione-containing lotion
time frame: 8 weeks
Long-term cutaneous and psychosocial discomfort and adverse event
time frame: 4 weeks
All participants at least 18 years old.
Inclusion Criteria: - Age 18 years or older. - Patient scheduled to start an epidermal growth factor receptor inhibitor (must be one of these three: panitumumab, erlotinib, cetuximab) within the next 3 days or patient has already started the epidermal growth factor receptor inhibitor but has not been on it for longer than 3 days and has no signs or symptoms potentially suggestive of EGFR inhibitor toxicity. - Ability to reliably apply Menadione Topical Lotion / placebo twice a day to the face. - Ability to complete questionnaire(s) by themselves or with assistance. - Negative pregnancy test (serum or urine) done ≤ 7 days prior to registration, for women of childbearing potential only. - Willing to have photographs taken to assess rash. Exclusion Criteria: - Any active facial and/or chest rash, including adult acne, at the time of randomization. - Cutaneous metastases, skin cancer, or a history of precancerous skin lesions involving the face and/or chest. - Use of topical corticosteroids on the face and/or chest at the time of study entry or their anticipated use in the next 8 weeks. - Any type of ongoing therapy for rash. - Any of the following: - Pregnant women - Nursing women - Men or women of childbearing potential who are unwilling to employ adequate contraception since this study involves agents that have known genotoxic, mutagenic and teratogenic effects - Use of any antibiotic at the time of study or their anticipated use in the 8 weeks immediately following study enrollment.
|Official title||A Randomized, Double-Blind Placebo-Controlled Exploration of a Topical Menadione-Containing Lotion to the Face for Prevention and Palliation of Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor Inhibitor-Induced Cutaneous Discomfort and Psychological Distress|
|Description||PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. Explore the effectiveness of a menadione topical lotion to the face to prevent cutaneous and psychological discomfort from epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) inhibitors. SECONDARY OBJECTIVES: I. Explore the adverse event profile of a menadione topical lotion to the face to prevent rash from EGFR inhibitors. II. Explore whether rash or adverse events worsen over a 4 week period after this 4-week intervention. OUTLINE: Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 treatment arms. ARM I: Patients apply menadione topical lotion twice daily (BID) for 28 days. ARM II: Patients apply topical placebo lotion BID for 28 days. After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up for 4 weeks.|
