Published Studies Related to Acticin (Permethrin)

Clinical trial showing superiority of a coconut and anise spray over permethrin 0.43% lotion for head louse infestation, ISRCTN96469780. [2010.01]
Permethrin is the most widely used pediculicide, but evidence of resistance from several countries and anecdotal reports from Germany suggest that permethrin lotion is now less effective. We designed a randomized, controlled, parallel group trial involving 100 participants with active head louse infestation to investigate the activity of a coconut and anise spray and to see whether permethrin lotion is still effective, using two applications of product 9 days apart...

Efficacy and safety of spinosad and permethrin creme rinses for pediculosis capitis (head lice). [2009.09]
CONCLUSIONS: Spinosad, which did not require nit combing, was significantly more effective than permethrin in 2 studies reflecting actual-use conditions, and most spinosad-treated participants required only 1 application. Spinosad is a more convenient and effective treatment for pediculosis capitis.

Clinical Trials Related to Acticin (Permethrin)

Safety and Efficacy Study to Compare a 4% Dimethicone Foam and Nix Cream Rinse (1% Permethrin) in the Control of Head Lice [Completed]
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of a dimethicone foam in the control of head lice and to compare the efficacy to a permethrin based product.

Metabolism of the Insecticide Permethrin [Completed]
Military personnel are exposed to the insecticide permethrin when using the DOD Insect Repellent System. A urinary metabolite of permethrin that is in high abundance and is relatively stable may be an ideal biomarker of exposure to this pesticide. Monitoring such a biomarker can prevent over-exposure. The objectives are to identify the most abundant human urinary metabolite following dermal exposure; to utilize this information to develop rapid laboratory-based and field portable methods to monitor the degree of an individual's exposure to permethrin.

A Comparative Safety and Efficacy Study of NatrOVA Creme Rinse - 1% and NIX Creme Rinse in Subjects 6 Months or Older With Pediculosis Capitis [Completed]

A comparative safety and efficacy study of NatrOVA Creme Rinse - 1% versus NIX Creme Rinse,

under actual use conditions in subjects 6 months of age or greater who are infested with Pediculosis capitis (Head lice).

Safety and Efficacy Study of NatrOVA - 1% Creme Rinse and NIX Creme Rinse in Subjects 6 Months or Older With Head Lice [Completed]

A comparative safety and efficacy study of NatrOVA Creme Rinse - 1% versus NIX Creme Rinse,

under actual use conditions in subjects 6 months of age or greater who are infested with Pediculosis capitis (human head lice).

Effectiveness of Permethrin Impregnated Underwear in Preventing Louse Proliferation in Infected Homeless [Recruiting]
Homelessness, also name the fourth world, is a growing public health problem worldwide. Previous studies showed that up to 30% of the homeless people reported pruritus that often results in itchy lesions, which expose them to bacterial skin infections.

The investigators therefore conducted a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial to test the hypothesis that a single oral dose of ivermectin was effective in significantly reducing the prevalence of pruritus in a sheltered homeless population.
