Once-daily treatment of psoriasis with topical glucocorticosteroid ointments.

A double-blind, vehicle-controlled comparison of two glucocorticosteroid ointments demonstrated that once-daily therapy for psoriasis was effective. After 3 weeks of once-daily therapy, psoriasis subjects treated with betamethasone dipropionate (BD) ointment or diflorasone diacetate (DD) ointment showed statistically significant (p less than 0.01) improvement compared to subjects using vehicle alone.
