Published Studies Related to Ciclopirox Olamine (Ciclopirox Olamine Topical)

A randomized, double-blind study comparing the efficacy of selenium sulfide shampoo 1% and ciclopirox shampoo 1% as adjunctive treatments for tinea capitis in children. [2010.09]
Our objective was to compare the efficacy of selenium sulfide shampoo 1% and ciclopirox shampoo 1% as adjunctive treatments for tinea capitis in children. Forty children aged 1-11 years with clinically diagnosed tinea capitis were randomized to receive selenium sulfide shampoo 1% or ciclopirox shampoo 1% twice a week as adjuncts to an 8-week course of ultramicronized griseofulvin dosed at 10-12 mg/kg/day...

Randomized study comparing the efficacy and tolerance of a lipohydroxy acid shampoo to a ciclopiroxolamine shampoo in the treatment of scalp seborrheic dermatitis. [2009.12]
BACKGROUND: The success of a dandruff treatment depends not only on the ability of a shampoo to control dandruff, but also on patient compliance, which is closely linked to the cosmetic attributes of the product. AIM: The aim of this study was to compare efficacy, tolerance, and cosmetic properties of a LHA Shampoo [containing 0.1% lipohydroxy acid (LHA) and 1.3% salicylic acid] to a CPO shampoo [containing 1.5% ciclopiroxolamine (CPO), 3% salicylic acid, and 0.5% menthol] in subjects with seborrheic dermatitis (SD) of the scalp... CONCLUSION: In conclusion, these results demonstrated that the lipohydroxy acid shampoo evaluated in this study is a more convenient, efficient, safe, and well-tolerated cosmetic treatment for mild-to-moderate seborrheic dermatitis of the scalp than a ciclopiroxolamine shampoo.

Clinical efficacy of a new ciclopiroxolamine/zinc pyrithione shampoo in scalp seborrheic dermatitis treatment. [2006.09]
Ciclopiroxolamine (CPO) and Zinc Pirythione (ZP) antifungals are efficient at treating scalp seborrheic dermatitis.This multicentre, single-blind, clinical study was conducted to evaluate the efficacy of a shampoo containing the 1.5% CPO/1% ZP association compared to the vehicle shampoo and to 2% ketoconazole foaming gel in the treatment of seborrheic dermatitis.In 189 patients randomised to apply 1 of the 3 products twice a week for 28 days, the global lesional score, erythema, pruritus, global efficacy, quality of life (SF12 and DLQI questionnaires) and tolerance were measured at 0, 7, 14 and 28 days.The 3 products reduced lesional score, erythema and pruritus from day 7 (p < 0.0001)...

Clinical Trials Related to Ciclopirox Olamine (Ciclopirox Olamine Topical)

Study Evaluating the Tolerance and Biologic Activity of Oral Ciclopirox Olamine in Patients With Relapsed or Refractory Hematologic Malignancy [Completed]
This is an open-label, single arm study. Approximately 3-30 patients will be enrolled. Patients will receive Oral ciclopirox olamine (aqueous suspension), initial starting dose of 5 mg/m2/day administered as a single dose daily for 5 days. Three patients will initially be treated at each dose level in sequential cohorts. Dose escalation will continue for each subsequent cohort based on toxicity and plasma drug concentrations observed during the previous cohort. Dose escalation will continue until establishment of the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) has been met. Patients who have demonstrated response to treatment, up to 6 total cycles of treatment may be administered. If additional cycles are warranted, ciclopirox olamine will be given at the same dose and frequency as the patient initially received.

Safety and Equivalence of a Generic Ciclopirox Olamine Cream Compared to the Reference Ciclopirox Cream 0.77% for the Treatment of Tinea Pedis [Completed]
The objectives of this study were to demonstrate comparable safety and efficacy of Ciclopirox Olamine Cream (Test Product) and Ciclopirox Cream 0. 77% (Reference Product) in the treatment of subjects with tinea pedis, and to show the superiority of the active treatments over that of the vehicle.

Safety Study of Ciclopirox Olamine Cream for Dermatomycoses in Children [Terminated]
Ciclopirox olamine (CiclochemŪ) is a pyridone broad spectrum antifungal drug which has shown activity on dermatophytes, yeasts, moulds, actinomycetes and some bacteria. Its mechanism of action is based on a fungicidal activity by inhibiting the cellular captation of essential substances needed for the metabolism and growth of the fungi. On the other hand, this drug binds irreversibly with cell structures as mitochondria, ribosomes, microsomes and cell wall. After dermal application, Ciclopirox olamine undergoes skin penetration, being only absorbed a 1,5% of the applied dose. Clinical efficacy has been studied in patients above 10 years with superficial dermatomycoses (dermatophytoses, candidiasis and pityriasis versicolor) and the percentage of clinical healing ranged from 77% to 91% after 2-4 weeks of twice a day topical application. In all the studies, the safety profile has been very good, showing only a very low rate of adverse events of mild to moderate intensity. There are very few previous available data on the application of this compound in children under 10 years of age. A single study had been performed with a solution formulation in patients from 6 to 29 months with diaper candidiasis, showing good efficacy and tolerability in these patients. The present study aims to show the safety and tolerability of ciclopirox olamine in a cream formulation in patients from 3 months to 10 years with dermatomycoses.

Safety and Equivalence of a Generic Ciclopirox Olamine Topical Suspension Compared to the Reference Ciclopirox Topical Suspension 0.77% for the Treatment of Tinea Pedis [Completed]
The objectives of this study were to demonstrate comparable safety and efficacy of Ciclopirox Olamine Topical Suspension (Test Product) and Ciclopirox Topical Suspension 0. 77% (Reference Product) in the treatment of subjects with tinea pedis, and to show the superiority of the active treatments over that of the vehicle.

Efficacy, Safety and Cost-effectiveness of a Sequential Therapy With RV4104A Ointment, Ciclopiroxolamine Cream and Ciclopirox Film-forming Solution Compared With Amorolfine Nail Lacquer in Dermatophytic Onychomycosis [Recruiting]
The purpose of the study is to evaluate and compare the efficacy of the sequential association RV4104A ointment followed by ciclopiroxolamine 1% cream and ciclopirox 8% film-forming solution versus amorolfine 5% nail lacquer alone in the treatment of patients with dermatophytic onychomycosis (toenail) without matrix involvement.
