  5. Subjects must have an IGA Grade of 3 at the Baseline Visit.
  6. Female subjects of childbearing potential must have a negative urine pregnancy test result at Baseline (Visit 2) (test will have a sensitivity of at least 25mIU/ml for human chorionic gonadotropin) and practice a reliable method of contraception or remain sexually inactive throughout the study.

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Current diagnosis of unstable forms of psoriasis including guttate, erythrodermic, exfoliative or pustular psoriasis.
  2. Other inflammatory skin disease that may confound the evaluation of the plaque psoriasis (e.g., atopic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, tinea corporis).
  3. Presence of pigmentation, extensive scarring, pigmented lesions or sunburn which could interfere with the rating of efficacy parameters.
  4. History of psoriasis unresponsive to topical treatments.
  5. History of organ transplant requiring immunosuppression, HIV, or other immunocompromised state.
  6. Use within 180 days prior to Baseline Visit of biologic treatment for psoriasis (e.g., infliximab, adalimumab, etanercept, ustekinumab, or alefacept).
  7. Have received treatment for any type of cancer within 5 years of the Baseline Visit except for non-melanoma skin cancer and cervical cancer (in situ) are allowed within 1 year of the Baseline Visit.
  8. Use within 60 days prior to the Baseline Visit of: 1) immunosuppressive drugs (e.g., tacrolimus, pimecrolimus), 2) systemic antipsoriatic treatment (e.g., methotrexate, cyclosporine, hydroxyurea) or 3) oral retinoids (e.g., acitretin, isotretinoin).
  9. Use within 30 days prior to the Baseline Visit of: 1) systemic steroids, 2) PUVA therapy, 3) systemic anti-inflammatory agents (e.g., mycophenolate mofetil, sulfasalazine, 6-thioguanine), or 4) UVB therapy. Note: Inhaled, intraocular and intranasal steroids are allowed.
  10. Use within 14 days prior to the Baseline Visit of: 1) topical antipsoriatic drugs (e.g., salicylic acid, anthralin, coal tar, calcipotriene), 2) topical retinoids (e.g., tazarotene, tretinoin) or 3) topical corticosteroids.
  11. Subjects with known hypersensitivity to clocortolone pivalate or any component of Cloderm Cream.
  12. Subjects who have participated in a study of an investigational drug 60 days prior to the Baseline Visit.
  13. Subjects unable to comply with study requirements.
  14. Female subjects who are pregnant (or planning to become pregnant) or breast-feeding.
