Betnovate

Betnovate is an active topical corticosteroid which produces a rapid response in those inflammatory dermatoses that are normally responsive to topical corticosteroid therapy, and is often effective in the less responsive conditions such as psoriasis. Betnovate helps to reduce the redness, itching, and swelling of skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, contact dermatitis, and seborrhea.

Description

Betnovate belongs to a group of medicines called corticosteroids.

Betnovate is an active topical corticosteroid which produces a rapid response in those inflammatory dermatoses that are normally responsive to topical corticosteroid therapy, and is often effective in the less responsive conditions such as psoriasis.

Betnovate preparations are indicated for the treatment of eczema in children and adults, including atopic and discoid eczemas, prurigo nodularis, psoriasis (excluding widespread plaque psoriasis); neurodermatoses, including lichen simplex, lichen planus; seborrhoeic dermatitis; contact sensitivity reactions; discoid lupus erythematosus and they may be used as an adjunct to systemic steroid therapy in generalised erythroderma.

Generic name of Betnovate is Betamethasone.

Dosage

Follow the directions for using this medicine provided by your doctor. Use Betnovate exactly as directed.

Betnovate is usually applied 2 or 3 times a day. This may be reduced as your skin begins to get better.

betnovate ointment medicine

In order to quantify the intensity of skin blanching and thus predict the bioavailability of topical corticoids, a physical device allowing the measurement of light reflected from skin without any contact between the probe and the skin was used (Leveque et al., 1984). Three series of experiments were carried out: firstly, to assess the vasoconstrictor potency of four corticoids; secondly, to show the influence of the vehicle on the bioavailability of the same drug under various galenic forms, such as fatty ointments or water in oil (W/O) and oil in water (O/W) creams; thirdly, to determine the reservoir effects, if any, of some of these formulations. The results confirm previous findings about the potency of hydrocortisone acetate, triamcinolone 17-acetonide, betamethasone 17-valerate, diflucortolone valerate and clobetasol 17-propionate.

17,21-Bis(acetyloxy)-2-bromo-6beta,9-difluoro-11beta-hydroxypregna-1,4-diene-3,20-dione (halopredone acetate; Topicon) cream, a new synthetic corticosteroid for topical use, has been evaluated against betamethasone valerate by means of double-blind sequential study, where the patients, mainly affected with psoriasis, presented symmetrically located lesions which were treated with either the new drug or the reference cream so that each patient could serve as his own control. Activity and tolerability of the two preparations were equivalent. This equivalence is particularly significant when bearing in mind that the concentration of the active principle (0.01%) contained in the halopredone acetate cream is one of the lowest employed so far and 10 times lower than that of the reference steroid (betamethasone valerate 0.1%). A second open trial, made in 30 patients suffering from psoriasis, confirmed the positive anti-inflammatory properties which the new substance had already displayed during the previous pharmacological tests.

A 51-year-old man presented with a 12-year history of an expanding, irritable rash on his buttocks, groin and scrotum. He gradually developed erythematous, annular plaques with ridged borders and depressed centres. He also had a verruciform eruption in his perianal area. A clinical diagnosis of porokeratosis confined to the genitogluteal area was confirmed histopathologically. Oral acitretin resulted in symptomatic and cosmetic improvement. He continues to be followed up to evaluate treatment outcomes.

A topical pharmaceutical cream containing the active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) betamethasone-17-valerate and fusidic acid has been developed for the treatment of inflammatory skin conditions and associated secondary infections. In this work, a novel stability-indicating RP-HPLC method has been developed for the simultaneous quantitation of impurities of both APIs present in this cream. The HPLC column was a 150 mm × 4.6 mm I.D. YMC-Pack Pro C18 column with 3 µm particles. The column-oven temperature was maintained at 40°C and UV detection at 235 nm was used. A gradient programme was employed at a flow rate of 0.7 mL/min. Mobile phase A comprised of a 16:21:21:42 (v/v/v/v) mixture of methanol, 10 g/L phosphoric acid, HPLC grade water and acetonitrile. Mobile phase B comprised of a 24:5:5:66 (v/v/v/v) mixture of methanol, 10 g/L phosphoric acid, HPLC grade water and acetonitrile. The method has been validated according to current International Conference on Harmonisation (ICH) guidelines and applied during formulation development and stability studies. The procedure has been shown to be stability-indicating for the topical cream.

Evaluations of the comparative efficacy and safety of a newly developed emollient ointment formulation of hydrocortisone valerate 0.2 percent were made in two double-blind, multicenter trials involving 145 patients with atopic dermatitis. Data are presented which indicate that hydrocortisone valerate 0.2 percent ointment is effective in the treatment of mild to moderate atopic dermatitis, has efficacy comparable to that of other intermediate potency corticosteroid ointments, and, moreover, that it is readily accepted by patients.

betnovate scalp review

Eleven children with severe perennial asthma and a poor clinical response to disodium cromoglycate were studied in a 4-month, double blind trial involving 1 month's treatment with placebo, disodium cromoglycate, betamethasone 17 valerate, and both drugs combined according to a predetermined random design. Each drug apparently reduced symptoms and improved daily peak flow and fortnightly spirometric measurements compared with placebo, but the improvement after betamethasone 17 valerate was greater in part because of the way this group of patients was selected. There did not appear to be any additional benefit when both drugs were used together. Betamethasone 17 valerate was not compared with beclomethasone diproprionate aerosol and there is no reason to believe it may be superior. Corticosteroid aerosols have potential hazards which may prove to equal those of long-term systemic steroids, but they offer the prospect of satisfactory control of symptoms without the risk of growth suppression in children with severe asthma. Disodium cromoglycate remains the drug of choice in severe childhood asthma and the use of corticosteroid aerosols should be confined to those children who fail to respond satisfactorily to disodium cromoglycate.

The competition of some widely employed glucocorticoids with the binding of [3H]-promegestone, a highly potent synthetic progestagen, to uterine cytosol progestin receptors of the immature rat has been studied both in in vitro and ex vivo experiments. The relative binding affinities (RBA's) to progesterone were determined in vitro: fluocinolone acetonide greater than triamcinolone acetonide greater than betamethasone 17-valerate greater than prednisolone, betamethasone, triamcinolone and cortisol. After pretreating rats in vivo with progesterone or chlormadinone acetate (subcutaneously), a dose-dependent decrease in in vitro binding of [3H]-promegestone to uterine cytosol was evident. Similar decreases were obtained after pretreatment with some of the other glucocorticoids tested. Potency ratios to progesterone, arbitrarily set at 1.0, were: fluocinolone acetonide 86.7, triamcinolone acetonide 5.6, betamethasone valerate 4.1, chlormadinone acetate 2.6. Prednisolone, betamethasone, triamcinolone and cortisol were inactive. Both the in vitro and the ex vivo results clearly indicate that glucocorticoids interact with the uterine cytosol progestin receptor system, depending on their chemical structures; this interaction may account for some of their unwanted side-effects in the endocrine system. Moreover, this experimental system may prove to be a useful tool for evaluation of the progestational activities of glucocorticoids and other steroids, using the rat as an animal model.

Cutaneous vasoconstriction induced by topical corticosteroids was investigated using non-invasive bioengineering techniques. Corticosteroids of different potency in alcoholic solution were applied topically, under occlusion, and cutaneous blanching was investigated using visual scoring, reflectance spectroscopy (RS) and laser-Doppler flowmetry (LDF). The RS technique allowed separation of cutaneous haemoglobin content into arterial oxygenated (OH) and venous deoxygenated haemoglobin (DOH) components. Application of alcohol decreased total haemoglobin by 10%, with a corresponding 8% increase in blood flow (BF). Clobetasol propionate was the most potent vasoconstrictor, inducing significant visible blanching and decreasing DOH (30%), OH (33%) and BF (18%) (P < 0.01). Fluocinolone acetonide, betamethasone-17-valerate and dexamethasone also caused visible blanching (P < 0.01). There was no significant decrease in BF, but reflectance spectroscopy showed a decrease in DOH (P < 0.01). Tixocortol, CMJ and hydrocortisone acetate did not produce significant blanching, although DOH was decreased compared with the alcohol control. Measured by reflectance spectroscopy, corticosteroid-induced blanching was predominantly venoconstriction and only the most potent corticosteroid caused a significant decrease in OH and blood flow. This may explain why previous attempts to improve cutaneous vasoconstriction assays using laser-Doppler flowmetry have been unsuccessful.

The primary end point of (mean) change from baseline in skin infiltrate thickness after 3 weeks of treatment showed statistically significant improvements for all treatments: betamethasone valerate cream (-286·9 μm), the selective PDE4 inhibitors roflumilast 0·5% (-237·1 μm) and TAK-084 (0·5% cream, -153·6 μm; 5% cream, -216·7 μm) and calcipotriol 0·005% (-187·7 μm) when compared with vehicle cream control (all P < 0·001). Both the TAK-084 5% and roflumilast 0·5% formulations performed well overall compared with the potent corticosteroid, betamethasone, and were ranked better than the vitamin D analogue calcipotriol. All adverse events were mild or moderate and none was serious.

In total, 241 patients with moderate to severe scalp psoriasis participated in the trial. After a 2-week run-in period, each active treatment (BVM or ST) was applied for 4 weeks, with a wash-out period between the two active treatment phases of at least 4 weeks. Efficacy was evaluated by investigators unaware of treatment sequence analysing a 'target' lesion for erythema, scaling, itching and burning using a five-point grading score. Patient treatment acceptability and assessment of the influence on Psoriasis Disability Index were evaluated using an eight-item modified Finlay-Khan questionnaire at baseline and at the end of each treatment period. Safety was evaluated by recording any adverse event occurring during the study duration. BVM was applied twice daily, and ST were applied once or twice daily, according to the approved scheduled regimens.

In 85 patients with psoriasis vulgaris the efficacy and tolerance of domoprednate and betamethasone valerate were studied in a double-blind, randomized trial lasting 4 weeks. Complete or satisfactory remission was obtained in 36% in the domoprednate group and in 53% in the betamethasone group. This difference is not statistically significant (p greater than 0.10). 3 patients on each treatment experienced some local irritation. No laboratory abnormalities were found during the study.

betnovate dosage

The bio-availability of betamethasone-17-valerate (Betnovate ointment) in emulsifying ointment (1 in 4 dilution) was investigated in ten subjects using a single-application vasoconstrictor assay; the blanching induced was measured using a skin reflectance spectrophotometer. The vasoconstrictor activity of the diluted preparations decreased with age. There was no significant difference between the vasoconstrictor activity of freshly made Betnovate 1 in 4 in emulsifying ointment and undiluted Betnovate ointment, and between 3-4 week old diluted Betnovate and emulsifying ointment base. Blanching induced by freshly prepared 4, 8 and 16-fold dilutions was not significantly different but a large reduction in blanching occurred on diluting 32-fold with emulsifying ointment. The degradation of betamethasone -17-valerate in emulsifying ointment was quantified by high performance liquid chromatography. More than 60% of the betamethasone -17-valerate underwent degradation within 6 h. There was a simultaneous increase in the concentration of betamethasone-21-valerate which peaked within 2 days and was followed by a slow degradation (half-life 8 days) to betamethasone free alcohol.

Betamethasone valerate nasal aerosol in a daily dose of 400 micrograms was compared with a placebo in a double-blind trial involving 103 patients with summer hay fever. The patients' and physicians' preference for the active compound was statistically significant (P less than 0.001), with 88% of the patients receiving betamethasone valerate obtaining substantial relief of symptoms. The analysis of patients' daily symptom scores showed that nasal symptoms were significantly reduced by the active aerosol (P less than 0.001). A day-by-day comparison of nasal symptom scores with pollen counts indicated a decreasing allergic response as the season progressed; possible reasons for this are discussed. No clinically significant side effects were observed. Short tetracosactrin tests from ten randomly chosen patients on betamethasone valerate showed no abnormality and nasal swabs for Candida culture from a further thirty-two patients were negative. It is buy betnovate concluded that intranasal betamethasone valerate is an effective and safe form of therapy for seasonal rhinitis.

Topical-corticosteroids are mainly used for the treatment of inflammatory or hyperproliferative skin diseases. The in vivo assay to rank topical-corticosteroids potency, based on the skin blanching, is not adapted to compare their anti-proliferative efficacy. We have compared the antiproliferative effect of six topical-corticosteroids on a model of hyperproliferant keratinocytes (HaCaT). Betamethasone-dipropionate; clobetasol-propionate; betamethasone-valerate; desonide; hydrocortisone-butyrate and hydrocortisone-base, at different concentrations (10(-8)-10(-4)M) have been compared. HaCaT proliferation has been evaluated by MTT-assay and the mechanism of the death was evaluated by annexin V/propidium iodide staining and cell cycle phases analysis. Topical corticosteroids reduced cell growth in a dose-dependent manner. At 10(-4)M, betamethasone dipropionate was the most antiproliferative compound while hydrocortisone-butyrate was the less. Hydrocortisone-base which is usually considered as the less potent topical-corticosteroids showed a clear cytotoxic effect. Betamethasone-dipropionate and betamethasone-valerate induced more apoptosis than necrosis whereas the reverse has been observed for other topical-corticosteroids. All topical-corticosteroids, except clobetasol-propionate, arrested cell cycle mainly in G2-phase. Clobetasol-propionate arrested cell cycle in S-phase population. At 10(-8)M, topical-corticosteroids induced HaCaT proliferation. In terms of antiproliferative effect at 10(-4)M, we propose to rank topical corticosteroids as follow: betamethasone-dipropionate>desonide≥betamethasone-valerate=hydrocortisone-base= buy betnovate clobetasol-propionate>hydrocortisone-butyrate. This classification differs from the current ranking, based on the vasoconstrictive effect, but is more adapted for hyperproliferative disease treatment.

Effects of Glyteer (GL, 5%) on Type I-Type IV allergic reactions were investigated by its topical application to rats and mice, and the effects were compared buy betnovate with those of betamethasone 17-valerate (BV, 0.12%), indomethacin (ID, 1%), and bufexamac (BM, 5%), which were all prepared with the same ointment base. Type I: GL showed inhibitory effects on the 48 hr homologous passive cutaneous anaphylaxis (PCA) in rats. The inhibitory activity of GL on the PCA had the same potency as that of BV (0.12%). GL also inhibited the degranulation of mast cells induced by PCA. Type II: GL did not exert an inhibitory effect on the reversed cutaneous anaphylaxis (RCA) in rats, but BM, ID and BV had an inhibitory activity on the RCA. Type III: BV markedly inhibited the direct passive Arthus reaction in rats. On the other hand, GL, BM and ID had not an inhibitory activity on it. Type IV: GL (0.2, 1 and 5%) showed a concentration-dependent inhibition on the delayed-type hypersensitivity response induced by oxazolone in mice, and the activity was stronger than those of ID and BM. From these results, it is suggested that GL applied externally possesses a potent effect as an anti-allergic drug on Type I and Type IV allergic reactions.

The effect of regular inhalation of betamethasone valerate (800 microgram daily) on exercise-induced asthma has been studied in 18 adult patients. The active aerosol was compared with placebo in a double-blind cross-over study, each inhaler being used for four weeks. Exercise tests after each period of treatment were performed using a cycle ergometer, care being taken to match the buy betnovate oxygen uptake during exercise each time a patient was tested. Twelve patients experienced less exercise-induced fall in peak expiratory flow rate after the corticosteroid inhaler, while six did not. This effect appeared to be independent of any alteration in base-line lung function, suggesting that it was due primarily to diminution of bronchial hyperreactivity. It is suggested that this change may have been due to interference with the synthesis or release of mediator substances from mast cells.

Following the announcement in 1949 in the USA that cortisone offered rheumatoid arthritis sufferers effective treatment for their crippling disease, the Ministry of Health came under considerable pressure from the medical profession and the public to make cortisone available in Britain. The Ministry, therefore, urged British companies to start manufacturing cortisone. Among the several pharmaceutical firms responding to the Ministry's request, Glaxo's expertise in the field of vitamins gave them a head start. This paper describes the varied and flexible strategy that enabled Glaxo to maintain this head start, and the scientific and technical capabilities which the company subsequently built up, enabling them to dominate the market for corticosteroids in Britain. Among the drugs to emerge out of the Glaxo project to manufacture cortisone, which began in 1950 and later became a wider R&D programme on steroids, was the topical steroid Betnovate, launched in 1963, which remains a best-seller today. However, although it led to successful new products, Glaxo's programme had limitations. The paper identifies a missed opportunity, in the shape of the biosynthetic route to steroid drugs, often considered as a milestone in the development buy betnovate of the new biotechnology. Whether or not this missed opportunity proved costly to the company is uncertain. However, it illustrates the role of technological path-dependence, and the importance of the integration between different scientific disciplines, in this case chemistry and biology, in pharmaceutical innovation.

Sixty consecutive patients with moderate to severe bilateral chronic eczema on the limbs were recruited into the study. The mean scores of various signs/symptoms including erythema, induration, crusting, scaling, excoriation and pruritus before and after 3 weeks treatment with mometasone furoate (MF) and clobetasol propionate (CP) cream, were compared. The baseline scores for MF and CP treated sites were almost identical. There was significant decrease in the mean scores of all signs/symptoms after 3 weeks treatment with MF and CP. There was also a significant difference in the mean scores between MF and buy betnovate CP treated sites after 3 weeks of treatment. The mean scores were significantly lower for CP treated sites than MF treated sites. More CP treated sites achieved "cleared" or "marked improvement" response than MF treated sites. There were more "excellent" or "good" grades on CP treated sites than MF treated sites at the end of 3 weeks of treatment. None of the patients showed any side-effects after 4 weeks of treatment.

Topical glucocorticosteroids are useful in the treatment of various skin diseases. Although there are already many corticosteroids available, there is still need for highly potent and well tolerated ones. The anti-inflammatory activity of methylprednisolone aceponate (MPA, CAS 86401-95-8) has been investigated in 165 healthy volunteers of either sex. UV-B irradiation or cellophane tape stripping has served to produce erythema. First, the dose response relationship of MPA ointment (0.01%, 0.05%, 0.1% and 0.5%) has been evaluated. MPA effects have been related to those of the vehicle and difluocortolone 21-valerate 0.1% (DFV) ointment. Then the activity of 0.1% MPA (cream, ointment and fatty ointment) has been related to those of the respective vehicles as well as commercially available preparations of five corticosteroids: betamethasone 17,21-dipropionate 0.64% (BDP), betamethasone 17-valerate 0.1% (BV), clobetasol 17-propionate 0.05% (CP), hydrocortisone 17-butyrate 0.1% (HCB), prednicarbate 0.25% (P). In each experiment, MPA activity significantly exceeded that of the respective vehicle (p < or = 0.05). MPA 0.01-0.5% ointment exhibited strong anti-inflammatory activity, at least corresponding to that of 0.1% DFV ointment. A dose-dependent activity could only be observed in the UV-B-erythema test buy betnovate using 3 fold MED (minimal erythema doses) for irradiation, a test model differentiating strong corticosteroids. The comparison of 0.1% MPA formulations with respective reference preparations showed the following results: On stripped skin no significant differences could be detected which is demonstrated in the example of cream formulations.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

Of 325 screened patients, 324 were randomized to BMV (N = 165) or CBD (N = 159), and were considered evaluable for the safety and intention-to-treat (ITT) efficacy analyses. Per protocol (PP) populations included 133 and 131 patients in the BMV and CBD groups respectively. The mean adjusted TSS-4 significantly decreased through the study from baseline in both groups. The PP (primary) analysis of week 4 data revealed a -0.288 (95% CI: -0.610 to 0.034) not significant between-group difference in adjusted means, demonstrating non-inferiority of BMV to CBD. Non-inferiority was also demonstrated in the ITT analysis. The PGA and other secondary outcomes were significantly improved from baseline in both groups at week 4. The QoL score was slightly better in the CBD group at week 4, but no difference was observed at follow-up. No safety or buy betnovate tolerability concerns were observed in either group.

A combination of multiple agents is often required to achieve treatment success for plaque-type psoriasis. We report a case series of 10 patients that were treated with betamethasone valerate foam (0.12%) in the morning and topical tazarotene cream (0.1%) in the evening for a total of 12 weeks or until plaques cleared. Erythema, scale, Cardura Generic Equivalent and thickness along with an aggregate severity score were determined at weeks 4, 8, and 12. One patient was lost to follow-up. Eight of the other 9 patients experienced improvement in their disease by week 12. Two patients were clear of their psoriasis at week 4 and 4 were clear at week 8. No adverse events, including irritation were reported; the use of the corticosteroid foam may protect against potential local irritation reported with tazarotene. The combination of tazarotene cream and betamethasone valerate foam is an effective combination approach to treating localized plaque-type psoriasis.

More than 10 years ago, diflucortolone valerate (Nerisone, Nerisona) was introduced in Germany and soon after in Asian countries in a concentration of 0.1% in cream, ointment and fatty ointment bases. 897 patients were included in the first Southeast Asian multicentre trial with these 3 formulations, and good efficacy and tolerability combined with a rapid onset of effect were shown. These results were confirmed later in Indonesia in an extended follow-up trial which included 1295 patients. A combination of 0.1% diflucortolone valerate with 1.0% chlorquinaldol was introduced after a multicentre Southeast Asian trial involving 8668 patients with inflammatory or allergic skin conditions for which a supplementary anti-infective treatment, for prophylaxis or therapy, was considered to be indicated. Excellent results were obtained in terms of efficacy, tolerability and cosmetic properties. A randomised double-blind trial comparing this preparation with a so-called 'shotgun' combination containing 0.05% betamethasone 17-valerate, 0.1% gentamicin, 1.0% tolnaftate and 1.0% clioquinol in 288 patients in the Philippines resulted in a better efficacy for the diflucortolone preparation in the 80 patients with bacterially or mycotically Seroquel 400 Mg infected skin diseases. A 0.3% concentration of diflucortolone valerate was developed and introduced as a high potency topical corticosteroid. A trial in the Philippines which involved 143 patients with mostly severe chronic recurrent and resistant corticosteroid-responsive skin disease confirmed a pronounced clinical efficacy with a low incidence of side effects. For the treatment of inflammatory or eczematised dermatomycosis. 0.1% diflucortolone was combined with 1.0% isoconazole nitrate (Travocort). In a randomised double-blind study of 294 patients in Thailand, this preparation was compared with a plain 1.0% clotrimazole formulation. The results were significantly better for the diflucortolone plus isoconazole nitrate combination in terms of remission of symptoms, and after 1 week the mycological cure rates were also better, as shown in potassium hydroxide and culture investigations. It is concluded, therefore, that diflucortolone valerate in the available galenic bases and in effective combinations with other agents has been proven in extensive clinical trials to be a valuable therapeutic tool in dermatological practice.

These studies explored the effects of oral pharmacological doses of glucocorticoids on the normal small intestine of Propecia Or Generic the adult rat. Short-term (7 days) prednisolone had little effect on mucosal structure or cell kinetics but enhanced the maximum absorptive capacities of the jejunum and ileum for galactose. This was due to an increase in carrier-mediated transport in the individual enterocytes and not to a change in the cell population. Activities of brush border enzymes were elevated and turnover studies indicated an increased rate of synthesis of brush border proteins associated with an enhanced glycoprotein content of the microvillus membrane. Subcellular fractionation studies demonstrated a large increase in the membrane-bound ribosomal RNA content of the enterocytes consistent with an enhanced synthesis of membrane proteins. These findings implicate a direct action of prednisolone on the enterocytes to increase their absorptive and digestive capacities by the induction of specific functional proteins. These effects on the absorptive and digestive functions of the small intestine were sustained with long-term (28 days) prednisolone feeding. An equivalent long-term oral dose of betamethasone-17-valerate, a locally rather than a systemically active glucocorticoid, had a similar effect on the enterocytes. However, an inhibition of crypt cell turnover resulted in a marked hypoplasia and hence no net change in the functional capacity of the mucosa. These findings emphasise the separate and opposing actions of glucocorticoids on the adult mucosa, on the one hand to stimulate enterocyte function, but on the other to reduce the enterocyte population. The predominant activity appears to be a function of each individual steroid. The predominant stimulatory action of prednisolone was further emphasised by investigating the effects of this glucocorticoid on the adapted ileum following jejunal resection. Indeed, short-term prednisolone enhanced the adaptive hyperplasia in the ideal remnant by increasing the functional capacity of the expanded population of enterocytes.

The effect of Elavil 5 Mg topical application of halcinonide cream and betamethasone valerate cream on plasma cortisol was studied in an acute usage study as well as a subacute study, which more closely approximated common clinical usage. In the acute study, halcinonide cream caused a marked decrease in plasma cortisol, both with and without occlusion, in patients with extensive psoriasis, but only with occlusion in normal subjects. Betamethasone valerate cream decreased plasma cortisol levels in patients with extensive psoriasis when applied with occlusion and, to a lesser extent, without occlusion. In a double-blind subacute usage study without occlusion, two of 23 patients treated with halcinonide cream showed decreased plasma cortisol levels during the treatment period, while none of the 21 patients treated with betamethasone valerate cream showed such decreases. Three patients in the halcinonide group developed striae. Clinical response to halcinonide was superior to that with betamethasone valerate cream, but a similar number of patients were resistant to treatment with each medication.

Topical corticosteroids are frequently used in the treatment of irritant contact dermatitis (ICD). The efficacy of this treatment has, however, not been thoroughly Ventolin 60 Dose established, and experimental studies on the topic have provided conflicting results. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effect of potent topical corticosteroids on experimentally-induced irritant skin reactions in a double-blind, vehicle-controlled study. 16 healthy volunteers had sodium lauryl sulfate patch tests symmetrically applied to the upper arms. After removal of patch tests, a potent topical corticosteroid (betamethasone-17-valerate) was applied to the irritant skin reaction on one arm, while the corresponding vehicle was applied to the irritant skin reaction on the opposite arm 2x daily for 7 days. Reactions were evaluated by measurement of transepidermal water loss (TEWL) and erythema. After 7 days, statistically significant lower values of TEWL and erythema were found in corticosteroid-treated, compared to the vehicle-treated, skin reactions. The results indicate that topical corticosteroids improve healing of ICD.
