Comparison of the two most commonly used treatments for pyoderma gangrenosum: results of the STOP GAP randomised controlled trial.
Bottom Line: By six months, ulcers had healed in 28/59 (47%) participants in the ciclosporin group compared with 25/53 (47%) in the prednisolone group.Prednisolone and ciclosporin did not differ across a range of objective and patient reported outcomes.Treatment decisions for individual patients may be guided by the different side effect profiles of the two drugs and patient preference.
