Comparing the Efficacy of Ultravate Ointment in Combination With Lac-Hydrin Lotion in the Treatment of Psoriasis

2014-08-27 03:18:51 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This is an investigator-masked, randomized, parallel, clinical study comparing the efficacy of once daily versus twice daily application of Ultravate® ointment (halobetasol propionate 0.05% ointment) in combination with Lac-Hydrin lotion (ammonium lactate topical) in the treatment of stable plaque psoriasis. 1) Phase 1: Patients will be treated for two weeks with combination therapy using Ultravate® ointment with Lac-Hydrin lotion and their psoriasis plaques will be evaluated to test efficacy of the medication. Half the subjects will be randomized to receive treatment with once a day Ultravate® ointment and twice daily Lac-Hydrin lotion; the other half of subjects will receive twice daily Ultravate® ointment with twice daily Lac-Hydrin lotion. Ultravate® ointment will be discontinued following two weeks of treatment, in compliance with its FDA indication. Phase 2: The second treatment phase will consist of a four-week observation period. Subjects will be re-randomized to either continue using twice daily Lac-Hydrin lotion, versus no treatment. The purpose of this second phase of the study is to investigate whether use of Lac-Hydrin monotherapy twice daily can minimize risk of recurrence and maximize duration of therapeutic effect. Part of this clinical study consists of the use of patient and physician satisfaction questionnaires. These questionnaires will include questions about the satisfaction with the formulation of each agent, questions about compliance with treatment, etc. Such questions could be used to demonstrate patient and physician satisfaction with each agent, with combination therapy, and to compare patient satisfaction rates among those randomized to once daily versus twice daily application of Ultravate® ointment. The hypothesis is that Ultravate ointment once daily in combination with Lac-Hydrin twice daily is equal in efficacy to Ultravate ointment twice daily in combination with Lac-Hydrin twice daily.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A glucocorticoid derivative used topically in the treatment of various skin disorders. It is usually employed as a cream, gel, lotion, or ointment. It has also been used topically in the treatment of inflammatory eye, ear, and nose disorders. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p732)

A humanized monoclonal antibody that binds to IL-12 and IL-23 and is used as a DERMATOLOGIC AGENT in the treatment of patients with plaque PSORIASIS who have not responded to other therapies.

Endovascular procedure in which atheromatous plaque is excised by a cutting or rotating catheter. It differs from balloon and laser angioplasty procedures which enlarge vessels by dilation but frequently do not remove much plaque. If the plaque is removed by surgical excision under general anesthesia rather than by an endovascular procedure through a catheter, it is called ENDARTERECTOMY.

The term applied to a group of relatively uncommon inflammatory, maculopapular, scaly eruptions of unknown etiology and resistant to conventional treatment. Eruptions are both psoriatic and lichenoid in appearance, but the diseases are distinct from psoriasis, lichen planus, or other recognized dermatoses. Proposed nomenclature divides parapsoriasis into two distinct subgroups, PITYRIASIS LICHENOIDES and parapsoriasis en plaques (small- and large-plaque parapsoriasis).

A common genetically determined, chronic, inflammatory skin disease characterized by rounded erythematous, dry, scaling patches. The lesions have a predilection for nails, scalp, genitalia, extensor surfaces, and the lumbosacral region. Accelerated epidermopoiesis is considered to be the fundamental pathologic feature in psoriasis.
