Study information

Scientific title

Phase II clinical trial investigating the use of EPIgallocatechin-3-gallate (Veregen) in the treatment of Vulval Intraepithelial Neoplasia

Acronym

EPIVIN

Study hypothesis

The aim of this early phase trial is to determine if Veregen is a tolerable treatment with a level of activity that warrants further investigation in a definitive phase III trial. The trial will include women with histological diagnosis of VIN3 (usual type) and who have not received any prior treatment in the preceding 4 weeks.
The primary objective objective of the trial is to determine whether topical application of epigallocatechin-3-gallate (Veregen) can induce histological resolution of VIN when assessed 32 weeks following the start of treatment.
The secondary objectives of the trial are to supplement the primary outcome with analyses of objective response, patient safety, drug compliance and acceptability, need for further treatment, and quality of life.
