A Comparative Study on Clinical Efficacy of Clobetasol and Betamethasone in Orabase in Combination With Clotrimazole, in Oral Lichen Planus (NCT03026478)

Oral Lichen Planus (OLP) is an autoimmune, chronic inflammatory mucocutaneous disease characterized by pain and burning sensation. The major types of OLP are the following: reticular, atrophic, erosive-ulcerative, bullous and pigmentous form.Its etiology remains unclear. The presence of auto-cytotoxic T cell clones in the lesions suggests the role of autoimmunity. Numerous treatment options of OLP include topical and systemic agents depending on severity of lesions . Topical corticosteroids abide the mainstay of therapy,and are widely accepted as the primary treatment of choice.Hence this study is designed to evaluate and compare the clinical efficacy of topical Clobetasol 0.05% in orabase and Betamethasone 0.05% in orabase in combination with Clotrimazole 1% in the management of symptomatic Oral Lichen Planus.
