PRINCETON, N.J., Oct. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Promius Pharma LLC announced today that 4 posters regarding psoriasis treatment SERNIVO® (betamethasone dipropionate) Spray, 0.05% will be presented at the Fall Clinical Dermatology Conference® in Las Vegas, NV, October 12-15, 2017.
The posters represent Promius Pharma's commitment to dermatological science pertaining to psoriasis. "The results of this research provide compelling insights into the treatment of moderate psoriasis, including a novel steroid vehicle with an early onset of action," said author Dr Leon Kircik of Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. "SERNIVO has continued to demonstrate its effectiveness as a treatment option."
Indications and Usage
SERNIVO Spray is indicated for the treatment of mild-to-moderate plaque psoriasis in patients 18 years of age or older.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
SERNIVO Spray can produce reversible hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis suppression with the potential for glucocorticosteroid insufficiency. Systemic effects of topical corticosteroids may also manifest as Cushing's syndrome, hyperglycemia or unmasking of latent diabetes mellitus, and glucosuria. These events are rare and generally occur after prolonged exposure to larger than recommended doses, particularly with high-potency topical corticosteroids. Do not use if atrophy is present at the treatment site. Do not use with occlusive dressings. Avoid use on the face, scalp, axilla, groin or other intertriginous areas. Use of SERNIVO Spray is not recommended in pediatric patients as they are more susceptible to systemic toxicity. Allergic contact dermatitis may occur. The most common adverse reactions (≥1%) were application site pruritus, burning and/or stinging, pain, and atrophy. Local reactions and skin atrophy are more likely to occur with occlusive use, prolonged use, or use of higher potency corticosteroids. These are not all the possible side effects of SERNIVO Spray. Please see Full Prescribing Information.
