CalcipotriolAbout CalcipotriolIt is a new vitamin D analogue. Non-steroidal Antipsoriatic.Mechanism of Action of CalcipotriolCalcipotriol is a vitamin D analogue. It is a non-steroidal anti-psoriatic agent. Since it is a vitamin-D analogue it competes for 1, 25 (OH)2 D3 receptor. Calcipotriol is as potent as 1, 25 Dihydroxy cholecalciferol and regulating cell proliferation and cell differentiation, but much less active than Dihydroxy cholecalciferol in its effect on calcium metabolism. Calcipotriol induces keratinocytes differentiation and suppresses proliferation. Thus it reverses the abnormal keratinocytes changes in psoriasis and also normalizes epidermal growth. . When applied to the skin it works by reducing the production of skin cells. In psoriasis, the scaling and thickening of the skin and the appearance of raised plaques, are the result of excessive skin cell production. Calcipotriol reduces the excessive skin cell production and therefore helps improve the symptoms of psoriasis.
Calcipotriol is used to treat plaque psoriasis: Plaque psoriasis is a skin disorder caused by rapid multiplication of cells in the outer layer of the skin. As new skin cells are produced, old ones are shed. If this process is taking place too quickly, old skin cells build up on the skin surface causing red, scaly patches. Calcipotriol helps to control psoriasis by slowing down the production of new skin cells.
