Carbaryl lotions for head lice - new laboratory tests show variations in efficacy


, : Carbaryl lotions for head lice - new laboratory tests show variations in efficacy. Pharmaceutical Journal 245(6596): 159-161

The efficacies of carbaryl lotions (the alcohol based Carylderm and Suleo-C, and the aqueous based Clinicide and Derbac-C) for control of Pediculus capitis were evaluated using a new laboratory method which tested the impact in killing eggs or at least in rendering nymphs which emerged from treated eggs incapable of feeding. The new test appeared to be more sensitive than that used hitherto.
