A Trial That Compound Clobetasol Propionate Ointment Treats Patients With Mild to Moderate Psoriasis Vulgaris.

Overview

A multi-center, randomized, single blind, positive controlled trials that assess the effectiveness, safety and cost-effectiveness analysis in patients with mild to moderate psoriasis vulgaris and compare Compound Clobetasol Propionate Ointment to Calcipotriol Betamethasone Ointment. Objectives of Study: 1. Compare Compound Clobetasol Propionate Ointment to Calcipotriol Betamethasone Ointment in the treatment of mild to moderate psoriasis vulgaris in effectiveness and safety; 2. Compare the cost-effectiveness analysis of two treatment programs.

Clinical Trial Outcome Measures

Primary Measures

  • The improvement of psoriasis area and severity index scores(PASI scores)
    • Time Frame: At baseline, 2 weeks and 4 weeks after baseline.
    • The improvement of psoriasis area and severity index scores(PASI scores) are a system that assesses the damage of psoriasis severity and treatment response . The system is used to classify and evaluate according to the severity of lesions, areas of skin lesion and body surface area ratio of various body parts.
  • The overall evaluation of the researchers (Physician Global Assessment,PGA)
    • Time Frame: At baseline, 2 weeks and 4 weeks after baseline.
    • On every visiting viewpoint , researchers give a mark of the infiltration / hypertrophy (I), erythema (E) and scales (s) according to the level.PGA scores are acquired by the average of above three kinds of scores.
  • The Symptom score reduce index (SSRI)
    • Time Frame: 4 weeks after baseline.
    • 1)According to the improvement of psoriasis area and severity index scores(PASI scores) before and after treatments, the symptom score reduce index (SSRI) was calculated. 2)The symptom score reduce index (SSRI) = (the PASI scores before treatment – the PASI scores after treatment) / the PASI scores before treatment x 100%
  • Efficiency of treatment
    • Time Frame: 4 weeks after baseline.
    • 1)Healing patients : SSRI ≥ 90%, Marked effectiveness patients : 60% < SSRI < 90%, Improvement patients : 20% < SSRI < 60%, ineffectiveness patients :SSRI < 20%. 2)Efficiency of treatment = (The number of healing patients + The number of markedly effective patients + The number of improved patients ) / total number of patients in this group x 100%

Secondary Measures

  • Healing rate
    • Time Frame: 4 weeks after treatment
    • 1)Healing patients : SSRI ≥ 90%, Marked effectiveness patients : 60% < SSRI < 90%, Improvement patients : 20% < SSRI < 60%, ineffectiveness patients :SSRI < 20%. 2)Healing rate = The number of healing patients / total number of patients in this group x 100%
  • Markedly effective rate
    • Time Frame: 4 weeks after treatment
    • 1)Healing patients : SSRI ≥ 90%, Marked effectiveness patients : 60% < SSRI < 90%, Improvement patients : 20% < SSRI < 60%, ineffectiveness patients :SSRI < 20%. 2)Markedly effective rate = The number of markedly effective patients / total number of patients in this group x 100%
  • Response rate of PASI (PASI 75) after the treatment of 4 weeks
    • Time Frame: 4 weeks after treatment
    • Response rate of PASI (PASI 75) after the treatment of 4 weeks = The number of patients whose SSRI are more than 75% / total number of patients x 100%
  • Response rate of PGA ( basic fading rate of PGA) after the treatment of 4 weeks
    • Time Frame: 4 weeks after treatment
    • Response rate of PGA ( basic fading rate of PGA) after the treatment of 4 weeks:patients with 1 score of PGA for the last time/ total number of patients in this group x 100%
