Fluocinonide (Page 3 of 4)

14 CLINICAL STUDIES

Two adequate and well-controlled efficacy and safety studies of fluocinonide cream, 0.1% have been completed, one in adult subjects with plaque-type psoriasis (Table 2), and one in adult subjects with atopic dermatitis (Table 3). In each of these studies, subjects with between 2% and 10% body surface area involvement at baseline treated all affected areas either once daily or twice daily with fluocinonide cream, 0.1% for 14 consecutive days. The primary measure of efficacy was the proportion of subjects whose condition was cleared or almost cleared at the end of treatment. The results of these studies are presented in the tables below as percent and number of patients achieving treatment success at Week 2.
