Halobetasol Propionate Properties

Halobetasol Propionate

Molecule Structure Image



Halobetasol propionate is thought to act by the induction of phospholipase A2 inhibitory proteins, collectively called lipocortins. It is postulated that these proteins control the biosynthesis of potent mediators of inflammation such as prostaglandins and leukotrienes by inhibiting the release of their common precursor arachidonic acid. It is used for the relief of the inflammatory and pruritic manifestations of corticosteroid-responsive dermatoses.
