PREDNICARBATE SUMMARY

Prednicarbate emollient cream, 0.1% contains prednicarbate, a synthetic corticosteroid for topical dermatologic use.

Prednicarbate cream 0.1% (emollient) is a medium-potency corticosteroid indicated for the relief of the inflammatory and pruritic manifestations of corticosteroid responsive dermatoses. Prednicarbate cream 0.1% (emollient) may be used with caution in pediatric patients 1 year of age or older. The safety and efficacy of drug use for longer than 3 weeks in this population have not been established. Since safety and efficacy of prednicarbate cream 0.1% (emollient) have not been established in pediatric patients below 1 year of age, its use in this age group is not recommended.

Modern topical glucocorticoids and anti-infectives for superinfected atopic eczema: do prednicarbate and didecyldimethylammoniumchloride form a rational combination? [1994.11]
The addition of an anti-infective to a topical glucocorticoid preparation for superinfected atopic eczema is still controversial. To address this question in the context of the topical glucocorticoids of the non-halogenated double-ester type 0.25% prednicarbate cream was compared to the identical preparation incorporating the same amount of the disinfectant didecyldimethylammoniumchloride in patients suffering from atopic eczema carrying Staphylococcus aureus at a density of more than 10(6) colony-forming units per cm2...

Comparison of the effects of calcipotriol, prednicarbate and clobetasol 17-propionate on normal skin assessed by ultrasound measurement of skin thickness. [1994]
In this study, we investigated the effect of calcipotriol, prednicarbate and clobetasol 17-propionate on skin thickness over a treatment period of 6 weeks. The study was conducted as a controlled, randomized, double-blind comparison.

Prednicarbate activity and benefit/risk ratio in relation to other topical glucocorticoids. [1993.10]
BACKGROUND: Nonhalogenated double esters of prednisolone or hydrocortisone applied topically to the skin have a low atrophogenic potential. However, activity and benefit/risk ratio and therefore the superiority over conventional topical glucocorticoids are not well defined... CONCLUSIONS: Prednicarbate and hydrocortisone aceponate are intermediate potent glucocorticoids that are superior to betamethasone 17-valerate because of the improved benefit/risk ratio. Patients with severe atopic dermatitis and those who relapse frequently should profit from the treatment with these newer glucocorticoids.
