Clinical Trials Experience

Because clinical trials are conducted under widely varying conditions, adverse reaction rates observed in the clinical trials of a drug cannot be directly compared to rates in the clinical trials of another drug, and may not reflect the rates observed in practice.

IMPOYZ Cream was evaluated in two randomized, multicenter, prospective, vehicle-controlled clinical trials in subjects with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis. Subjects applied IMPOYZ Cream or vehicle cream twice daily for 14 days. A total of 354 subjects applied IMPOYZ Cream and 178 subjects applied vehicle.

The adverse reaction that occurred in at least 1% of subjects treated with IMPOYZ Cream and at a higher incidence than in subjects treated with vehicle cream was application site discoloration (2% versus 1%).

Less common local adverse events occurring in < 1% of subjects treated with IMPOYZ Cream were application site atrophy, telangiectasia and rash.

Postmarketing Experience

The following adverse reactions have been identified during post-approval use of clobetasol propionate: striae, irritation, dryness, acneiform eruptions, hypopigmentation, perioral dermatitis, allergic contact dermatitis, secondary infection, hypertrichosis, and miliaria. Because these reactions are reported voluntarily from a population of uncertain size, it is not always possible to reliably estimate their frequency or establish a causal relationship to drug exposure.
