Abstract

Calcipotriene offers a safe and effective option in the treatment of plaque psoriasis. It helps regulate the abnormal growth and production of keratinocytes, as well as has a number of effects on inflammation seen with psoriasis. When used as monotherapy or in combination with corticosteroids, it may help reduce the adverse effects seen with chronic steroid use. Calcipotriene is currently only indicated for plaque psoriasis; however, it has shown promise for use in a wide range of dermatologic conditions.
