Our study aimed to investigate the optimal usage of calcipotriol / betamethasone ointment on maintaining the efficacy of psoriasis vulgaris on stationary stage. In a long-term 52-week study, once-daily usage of the twocompound product was shown to be more safe and well tolerated than alternating 4-week periods of two-compound product and calcipotriol, or 4-week of two-compound product followed byctasia, striae distensae, acne, folliculitis, etc, which limit its long-term application 18.

Combination therapy appears to be safe and well tolerated for both short- and long-term use. Superpotent topical steroid treatment of psoriasis vulgaris–clinical efficacy and adrenal function. Calcipotriol plus betamethasone dipropionate gel compared with tacalcitol ointment and the gel vehicle alone in patients with psoriasis vulgaris: a randomized, controlled clinical trial. Tazarotene has also been found to be efficacious in combination with topical steroids and calcipotriol. Better and well-tolerated treatment modalities for long-term use are urgently required.
