  Purpose
This study is a comparison between Clobetasol Propionate Spray and Clobetasol Propionate Ointment with Regard to Efficacy, Safety, Subject Satisfaction and Duration of Response in Moderate to Severe Stable Plaque Psoriasis. Subjects will be enrolled and randomized into one of two groups: clobetasol propionate Spray for 4 weeks of treatment or clobetasol propionate ointment for 2 weeks of treatment with a 2 week follow-up visit for each group.

Condition Intervention Phase
Plaque Psoriasis Drug: clobetasol propionate spray Drug: clobetasol propionate ointment Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Comparison Between Clobetasol Propionate (Clobex®) Spray and Clobetasol Propionate Ointment With Regard to Efficacy, Safety, Subject Satisfaction and Duration of Response in Moderate to Severe Plaque Psoriasis

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects with a diagnosis of moderate to severe plaque psoriasis, defined as 3% - 20% of the body surface area. For the purposes of study treatment, most areas will be treated with the exception of face, scalp, groin, axillae and other intertriginous areas
  • Overall disease severity is at least 3 (moderate)

Exclusion Criteria:
