The therapeutic efficacy and tolerability of the antifungal agent ciclopiroxolamine have been verified with a double-blind study versus clotrimazole in 46 patients affected by vulvovaginal candidiasis. The patients of the first group (23) have been treated with ciclopiroxolamine globules, one 100 mg globule nightly for six days; the second group (23 patients) received clotrimazole vaginal tablets, one 200 mg tablet nightly for six days. Ciclopiroxolamine treatment showed an equivalent effectiveness to that of clotrimazole both on signs and symptoms and on vaginal smear culture. No local or systemic adverse reaction was observed.
