Tolerability

A pooled analysis of three randomised controlled trials in 1,104 patients demonstrated a positive benefit–risk profile for Enstilar®:1

  • Enstilar® was generally well tolerated in adult patients with plaque psoriasis over a 4-week treatment course
  • No clinically relevant changes were observed in albumin-corrected serum calcium and spot urinary calcium: creatinine ratio during Enstilar® treatment for 4 weeks
  • The authors concluded that Enstilar® provides superior efficacy compared with Dovobet® ointment and its individual active ingredients, while maintaining a favourable tolerability profile

The risk of hypercalcaemia is low when the maximum daily dose (15g) of calcipotriol is not exceeded2
