Treatment of psoriasis with psanol a combined preparation containing pix lithanthracis salicylic acid and pure urea



Dermatologiya i Venerologiya 26(3): 29-34



Experimental and clinical studies of the preparation Psanol, intended for local treatment of psoriasis, were made. Psanol is 95% isopropyl extract of coal-tar (from the Kremikovci metallurgic works), to which 3% salicylic acid and 2% urea are added. More than 2500 psoriasis patients have been treated over a period of five years. Comparative studies with other antipsoriasis agents for local application showed that Psanol has the following advantages: superior and quicker therapeutic effect in 85 percent of the patients; obtaining of comparatively longer remissions; negligible local and no general side reactions; does not contain strongly sensitizing and harmful components; very practicable for out-patient use; much cheaper than other antipsoriasis agents.
