COMET study

Welcome to the COMET study website!

COMET (Choice of Moisturiser in Eczema Treatment) was a feasibility trial of emollients (moisturisers) for the treatment of children with eczema, funded by the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) Research for Patient Benefit (PB-PG-0712-28056).

Recruitment to the COMET feasibility study closed on 30 April 2015. The study findings should be available in the spring/summer 2016.  A complete list of outputs from the study can be found in the “Outputs” page.

We are building on the success of the COMET feasibility study and plan to undertake the main trial, comparing different emollients in the treatment of children with eczema.
