“…This amount was used because previous studies did not show any systemic absorption with this dose. 3 Photographs were taken or notations were made of the location of the psoriatic lesions prior to the start of treatment, in order to delimit areas for future biopsies. A biopsy was taken prior to treat¬ ment from a psoriatic plaque and, as a control, from an uninvolved area of apparently normal skin.…”

An additional hypothetical occlusion-related mechanism stems from the experience with silicone products for scar management.…”
