Background/Aims: To assess the efficacy and tolerability of the new aerosol foam of calcipotriol 50 µg/g plus betamethasone dipropionate 0.5 mg/g (Cal/BD foam, Enstilar®) in psoriasis vulgaris under daily practice conditions. Methods: 410 adult psoriasis patients (56% male) from 87 German sites were enrolled in a 4-week, open-label, prospective, non-controlled, observational, non-interventional study. Results: At baseline, patients presented with a psoriasis severity of mild (41.81%), moderate (49.63%), and severe (8.31%) assessed by an investigator global assessment (IGA). After 4 weeks of treatment, 49% of the patients achieved an IGA of clear/almost clear. The mean affected body surface area was reduced from 12.91 to 7.55%, the PASI from 10.4 to 5.2 (p < 0.0001). 43% of the patients with severe IGA achieved treatment success (IGA = 0/1 and ≥2-step improvement). 93% of the patients did not show any adverse events. Conclusion: The new Cal/BD foam showed a convincing efficacy and tolerability profile in daily practice, particularly in patients with severer disease manifestations.
