• A double-blind, controlled study was performed in which eight investigators treated a total of 180 psoriasis patients with either betamethasone dipropionate cream or fluocinolone acetonide cream for four weeks. Betamethasone dipropionate cream was clearly superior to the control preparation in the degree of improvement effected and rapidity of action.
