Published Studies Related to Isopto Cetamide (Sulfacetamide Ophthalmic)
Combination sodium sulfacetamide 10% and sulfur 5% cream with sunscreens versus metronidazole 0.75% cream for rosacea. [2005.06]
Topical metronidazole and combination sodium sulfacetamide and sulfur commonly are used to treat rosacea. Recently, the relative efficacy and safety of sodium sulfacetamide 10% and sulfur 5% cream with sunscreens (Rosac Cream) (n = 75) and metronidazole 0.75% cream (Metrocream) (n = 77) were compared in an investigator-blinded, randomized, parallel-group study at 6 sites...
The multifunctionality of 10% sodium sulfacetamide, 5% sulfur emollient foam in the treatment of inflammatory facial dermatoses. [2010.03]
Prior to 1962, some of the most versatile drugs in dermatology were approved by the U.S...
Sulfacetamide loaded Eudragit(R) RL100 nanosuspension with potential for ocular delivery. 
PURPOSE: Polymeric nanosuspension was prepared from an inert polymer resin (Eudragit(R) RL100) with the aim of improving the availability of sulfacetamide at the intraocular level to combat bacterial infections... CONCLUSION: The results indicate that the formulation of sulfacetamide in Eudragit(R) RL100 nanosuspension could be utilized as potential delivery system for treating ocular bacterial infections.
Interaction of topical sulfacetamide and topical dapsone with benzoyl peroxide. [2009.09]
CONCLUSIONS: Knowledge of the chemical reaction between benzoyl peroxide and sulfacetamide and dapsone will help minimize the occurrence of this interaction on our patients' skin.
Bioadhesive sulfacetamide sodium microspheres: evaluation of their effectiveness in the treatment of bacterial keratitis caused by Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa in a rabbit model. [2009.08]
The aim of this study was to prepare bioadhesive sulfacetamide sodium (SA) microspheres to increase their residence time on the ocular surface and to enhance their treatment efficacy on ocular keratitis. Microspheres were fabricated by spray drying method using mixture of polymers such as pectin, polycarbophil and hydroxypropylmethyl cellulose (HPMC) at different ratios...

Non-Pharmaceutical Treatment of Seasonal Allergic Conjunctivitis [Recruiting]
Seasonal allergic conjunctivitis (SAC) is an irritating eye condition that affects many
people, caused by hypersensitivity to normally harmless substances such as pollen, and often
accompanies seasonal hay fever. Treatments that can be used before initiating medical
therapy include artificial tear supplements (ATS) and cold compresses (CC). However, there
is no evidence in the scientific literature that demonstrates their efficacy compared to no
treatment or their combined effect with anti-allergic medication. Therefore the
investigators aim to examine the efficacy of ATS and CC alone, in comparison to
anti-allergic medication, and CC in combination with anti-allergic medication. In addition,
the investigators also aim to determine the time course of ocular allergic reactions. At the
end of the study the investigators will be able to see whether or not ATS and CC are
effective in treating SAC.
