Evaluation of relative potencies of topical corticosteroids with histamine pin-prick method
BSN Reddy, R Shantharaman
Relative potencies of different topical steroids in two serial concentrations were evaluated over the flexor aspect of human forearm in 50 volunteers. The results indicated that the order of potency for different steroid solutions ranged from the lowest with hydrocortisone acetate to the highest with betamethasone dipropionate while other steroids occupied intermediate positions. Further, it was noted that the potency of steroids is enhanced significantly by increasing their concentration.
