Comparative efficacy of once-daily flurandrenolide tape versus twice-daily diflorasone diacetate ointment in the treatment of psoriasis. [1998.02]
BACKGROUND: Flurandrenolide tape has recently been listed as a group I topical corticosteroid. There are no studies that compare this product to group I ointments in the treatment of steroid-responsive dermatoses. OBJECTIVE: Our purpose was to determine the relative efficacy of flurandrenolide (4 microg/cm2) tape versus 0.05% diflorasone diacetate ointment in plaque psoriasis... CONCLUSION: The efficacy of flurandrenolide tape in the treatment of psoriatic plaques surpasses that of diflorasone diacetate ointment.

Diflorasone diacetate ointment 0.05% versus betamethasone dipropionate ointment 0.05% in moderate-severe plaque-type psoriasis. [1993]
We report the results of a 2-week double-blind, parallel clinical trial comparing two superpotent topical glucocorticosteroid ointments, diflorasone diacetate 0.05% and betamethasone dipropionate 0.05%, in psoriatic adults. Both corticosteroid ointments were fast acting and highly efficacious... No systemic or local adverse reactions were noted.
