FDA Accepts Ortho Dermatologic’s NDA for Novel Plaque Psoriasis Treatment, IDP-118

The US Food and Drug Administration has accepted Ortho Dermatologic’s New Drug Application (NDA) for IDP-118 (halobetasol propionate and tazarotene) lotion, an investigational topical treatment for plaque psoriasis. The PDUFA action date is June 18, 2018.

If approved, IDP-118 will be the first and only topical lotion that contains a unique combination of halobetasol propionate and tazarotene in one formulation for the treatment of plaque psoriasis in adult patients, allowing for a potentially expanded duration of use. The most common adverse events were contact dermatitis (7.4 percent ) and application site pain (2.6 percent).
