Meyer, I and Kanfer, I. and Haigh, J.M. (1981) Comparative blanching activities of some topical corticosteroid containing lotions. South African Pharmaceutical Journal, 48 . pp. 551-552. ISSN 0038-2258




'The blanching activities of Betnovate and Celestoderm-V lotions (betamethasone-17-valerate, 0,1%) and Diprosone lotion (betamethasone dipropionate, 0,55%) were determined by measuring their ability to cause blanching of human skin after topical application. Betnovate and Celestoderm-V lotions produced almost identical blanching profiles. Diprosone lotion displayed a statistically significant superior blanching acitivity over both Betnovate and Celestoderm-V lotions over the whole timespan of the trial.
