Calcipotriol is a stimulated form of vitamin D that belongs to the antipsoriatic drug class. It prevents the development of skin cells, which helps to regulate psoriatic disease. Calcipotriol has proven to inhibit cell growth and development. I also demonstrate a regulatory role on the skin's immune system, thus reducing the expression of specific immune markers responsible for the development of psoriasis.
Calcipotriol acts like Vitamin D. It further works by bringing down the rate with which skin cells develop, consequently controlling the psoriatic condition.
Calcipotriene is a form of vitamin D. It is also known as calcipotriol in other countries. It works by gradually reducing the growth of skin cells so that they don't build up into thickened, scaly skin patches. Thus, calcipotriol ointment is valuable as a first-line therapy option for managing feeble psoriasis and other antipsoriatic agents for more severe psoriasis. In addition, calcipotriol ointment proved beneficial in combination with other topical, phototherapy, or systemic antipsoriatic treatments, reducing the dosage and duration of some of these treatments and potentially improving their benefit/risk ratio.
Calcipotriol Ointment should be applied to the affected skin once or twice daily.
