Olux-E (clobetasol propionate) Foam, an emulsion aerosol foam, contains the active ingredient clobetasol propionate, USP, a synthetic corticosteroid for topical dermatologic use. Clobetasol, an analog of prednisolone, has a high degree of glucocorticoid activity and a slight degree of mineralocorticoid activity.
Olux-E Foam is indicated for the treatment of inflammatory and pruritic manifestations of corticosteroid-responsive dermatoses in patients 12 years of age or older (see PRECAUTIONS). Treatment should be limited to 2 consecutive weeks and patients should not use greater than 50 grams per week (see DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION).
Patients should be instructed to use Olux-E Foam for the minimum amount of time necessary to achieve the desired results (see PRECAUTIONS).
Use in pediatric patients under 12 years of age is not recommended because of numerically high rates of hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis suppression seen in patients under 12 years of age (see PRECAUTIONS: Pediatric Use).
Published Studies Related to Olux-E (Clobetasol Topical)
Clobetasol propionate, 0.05%, vs hydrocortisone, 1%, for alopecia areata in
children: a randomized clinical trial. 
IMPORTANCE: Alopecia areata is an idiopathic cause of hair loss with limited
therapeutic repertoire. OBJECTIVE: To compare the efficacy and safety of a high- vs low-potency topical
corticosteroid in pediatric patients...
A comparative study in efficacy and safety of 0.1% tacrolimus and 0.05%
clobetasol propionate ointment in discoid lupus erythematosus by modified
cutaneous lupus erythematosus disease area and severity index. 
CONCLUSION: The present study proved the efficacy of twice-daily tacrolimus and
A double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial of topical tacrolimus 0.1% vs. clobetasol propionate 0.05% in childhood vitiligo. [2011.09]
BACKGROUND: Both clobetasol propionate 0.05% (CP 0.05%) and tacrolimus 0.1% (T 0.1%) ointments have been shown to be efficacious and safe in treating vitiligo in the paediatric population. OBJECTIVES: To assess efficacy and safety of these two therapies compared with each other and with placebo... CONCLUSIONS: Both CP 0.05% and T 0.1% ointments offer similar benefit in paediatric vitiligo, both facial and nonfacial. The facial lesions responded faster than the nonfacial ones.

Comparison of clobetasol propionate cream plus coal tar vs. topical psoralen and solar ultraviolet A therapy in palmoplantar psoriasis. [2011.08]
AIM: Palmoplantar psoriasis (PPP) produces significant morbidity and requires prompt treatment. Topical agents form the mainstay of therapy. We compared the efficacy and side-effect profile of a steroid/coal-tar combination with topical psoralen and solar ultraviolet A (PUVAsol) in PPP... CONCLUSION: Both treatments had comparable efficacy. In both groups, patients experienced 'good improvement' after 16 weeks of therapy. (c) The Author(s).

Efficacious and safe management of moderate to severe scalp seborrhoeic dermatitis using clobetasol propionate shampoo 0.05% combined with ketoconazole shampoo 2%: a randomized, controlled study. [2011.07]
BACKGROUND: Topical antifungals and corticosteroids are the mainstay of treatment for seborrhoeic dermatitis. The short-contact clobetasol propionate 0.05% shampoo (CP) is an efficacious and safe once-daily treatment for scalp psoriasis. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the efficacy and safety of CP alone and combined with ketoconazole shampoo 2% (KC) in the treatment of moderate to severe scalp seborrhoeic dermatitis... CONCLUSIONS: The combination therapy of twice-weekly CP alternating with twice-weekly KC provided significantly greater efficacy than KC alone and a sustained effect in the treatment of moderate to severe scalp seborrhoeic dermatitis.
