A Study of Two Vismodegib Regimens in Participants With Multiple Basal Cell Carcinomas

This randomized, double-blind, regimen-controlled, phase II, multicenter study will assess the efficacy and safety of two different vismodegib regimens in participants with multiple basal cell carcinoma. Participants will receive vismodegib 150 mg orally once daily either in an intermittent schedule of 12 weeks vismodegib followed by 8 weeks placebo (Arm A) or as 24 weeks induction followed by an intermittent schedule of 8 weeks placebo followed by 8 weeks vismodegib (Arm B). Anticipated time on study treatment is 72 weeks.
