Efficacy of clindamycin in reducing pain following tonsillectomy in adults: a double-blind, randomised trial. [2013]
reducing throat pain after tonsillectomy in adult patients... CONCLUSION: Topical clindamycin was not demonstrated to be more effective than

Topical 4% nicotinamide vs. 1% clindamycin in moderate inflammatory acne vulgaris. [2013]
Nicotinamide and clindamycin gels are two popular topical medications for acne vulgaris... Skin type is a significant factor in choosing between topical nicotinamide and clindamycin in patients with acne vulgaris.

A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, pilot study to assess the efficacy and safety of clindamycin 1.2% and tretinoin 0.025% combination gel for the treatment of acne rosacea over 12 weeks. [2012]
rosacea after 12 weeks of usage... CONCLUSIONS: A combination gel of clindamycin phosphate 1.2% and tretinoin 0.025%

Efficacy and safety of topical nadifloxacin and benzoyl peroxide versus clindamycin and benzoyl peroxide in acne vulgaris: A randomized controlled trial. [2011.11]
BACKGROUND: Topical therapy with comedolytics and antibiotics are often advocated for mild and moderate severity acne vulgaris. Nadifloxacin, a new fluoroquinolone with anti-Propionibacterium acnes activity and additional anti-inflammatory activity, is approved for use in acne. This randomized controlled assessor blind trial compared the clinical effectiveness and safety of eight weeks therapy of nadifloxacin 1% versus clindamycin 1% as add-on therapy to benzoyl peroxide (2.5%) in mild to moderate grade acne... CONCLUSIONS: Topical nadifloxacin, a new fluoroquinolone is effective, tolerable, and safe for mild o moderate facial acne. Its clinical effectiveness is comparable to clindamycin when used as add-on therapy to benzoyl peroxide.

Solid state NMR and bioequivalence comparison of the pharmacokinetic parameters of two formulations of clindamycin. [2011.07]
OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to compare the pharmacokinetic parameters and determine the bioequivalence of a generic formulation of clindamycin that is sold in the local markets in the Middle East (Clindox(R) 150 mg capsule; test) with a reference formulation (Dalacin C(R) 150 mg capsule) in healthy adult male volunteers... CONCLUSION: The statistical comparison suggested that Clindox(R) capsules are bioequivalent to Dalacin C(R) capsules. The 13C CPMAS results confirmed that the two drugs exhibit typical clindamycin spectra.

Clinical Trials Related to Cleocin T (Clindamycin Topical)

Adherence to Study Medication Compared to Generic Topical Clindamycin Plus Generic Topical Tretinoin in Subjects With Mild to Moderate Acne Vulgaris [Completed]
The purpose of this research study is to evaluate the effectiveness of two different types of topical acne medication. This study will help to determine if one combined medication results in better acne improvement than two separate medications for acne.

Systemic and Topical Treatments for Rash Secondary to Erlotinib in Lung Cancer [Completed]
The purpose of this trial is to determine if rash caused by erlotinib can be successfully treated and if so to determine the optimal treatment approach. Hypothesis: Hypothesis 1: If the incidence of rash is 50% while on erlotinib, prophylactic monotherapy with minocycline can prevent occurrence in 50% of these patients. Hypothesis 2: Treatment of rash is successful in improving rash by at least one Grade in 80% of patients. Hypothesis 3: In patients with untreated rash, the rash will be self-limiting in 25% of patients, and 65% will be grade 1, 2A, and 2b. Ten percent will be grade 3 requiring treatment with monotherapy intervention.

Efficacy and Safety of a Preparation Containing an Antibiotic and Anti-Inflammatory Agent in Acne Vulgaris [Completed]
The concept behind our study was to combine an effect of antibiotic and anti-inflammatory agents for a more efficient acne therapy directed at the factors involved in the pathophysiology of the disease. For this purpose we evaluated a combination of clindamycin phosphate and salicylic acid in a non-irritating carrier.
