Double-blind evaluation of miconazole tampons, compared with clotrimazole vaginal tablets, in vaginal candidiasis



Double-blind evaluation of miconazole tampons, compared with clotrimazole vaginal tablets, in vaginal candidiasis



Clinical Therapeutics 4(3): 212-216



Fifty-one patients with vaginal candidiasis and positive cultures in Nickerson medium were treated either with two miconazole tampons daily for five days (26 patients, median age 28 years) or with one clotrimazole vaginal tablet daily for six days (25 patients, median age 36 years) in a randomized double-blind trial. Seven days after the end of the treatment, 24 (92%) patients in the miconazole group and 19 (76%) in the clotrimazole group had negative cultures. One month after the end of the treatment, the relapse rate was significantly (P less than 0.05) higher in the clotrimazole group. Symptoms subsided rapidly in both groups. No unwanted effects were reported.
