Efficacious and safe management of moderate to severe scalp seborrhoeic dermatitis using clobetasol propionate shampoo 0.05% combined with ketoconazole shampoo 2%: a randomized, controlled study. [2011.07]
BACKGROUND: Topical antifungals and corticosteroids are the mainstay of treatment for seborrhoeic dermatitis. The short-contact clobetasol propionate 0.05% shampoo (CP) is an efficacious and safe once-daily treatment for scalp psoriasis. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the efficacy and safety of CP alone and combined with ketoconazole shampoo 2% (KC) in the treatment of moderate to severe scalp seborrhoeic dermatitis... CONCLUSIONS: The combination therapy of twice-weekly CP alternating with twice-weekly KC provided significantly greater efficacy than KC alone and a sustained effect in the treatment of moderate to severe scalp seborrhoeic dermatitis.

Clinical and mycological evaluation of therapeutic effectiveness of Solanum chrysotrichum standardized extract on patients with Pityriasis capitis (dandruff). A double blind and randomized clinical trial controlled with ketoconazole. [2004.06]
Dandruff (also called Pityriasis capitis) is a seborrhoeic dermatitis of the scalp. It has been correlated with the pathological colonization of the scalp with yeast from the genus Malassezia; this illness has a worldwide distribution and represents 25% of all scalp dermatosis cases... chrysotrichum on the local treatment of Pityriasis capitis associated with the yeast of the genus Malassezia.
A multicenter randomized trial of ketoconazole 2% and zinc pyrithione 1% shampoos in severe dandruff and seborrheic dermatitis. [2002.11]
Ketoconazole (KET) and zinc pyrithione (ZPT) are compounds active against the Malassezia spp. yeasts, which are believed to play a major role in dandruff and seborrheic dermatitis...
A randomised, single-blind, single-centre clinical trial to evaluate comparative clinical efficacy of shampoos containing ciclopirox olamine (1.5%) and salicylic acid (3%), or ketoconazole (2%, Nizoral) for the treatment of dandruff/seborrhoeic dermatitis. [2002.06]
BACKGROUND: The association between seborrhoeic dermatitis and dandruff and the yeast Malassezia furfur is well recognized. Symptoms include scalp itchiness and scaling. Due to its antimycotic activity, ciclopirox olamine is established as an effective treatment for these scalp conditions. Salicylic acid has keratolytic properties and aids in the removal of scales. OBJECTIVE: To compare the therapeutic efficacy of a shampoo containing 1.5% ciclopirox olamine and 3% salicylic acid (CPO/SA) with Nizoral (2.0% ketoconazole shampoo) in a study involving 154 subjects with dandruff - 70 of whom also had seborrhoeic dermatitis of the scalp. Nizoral is currently a registered treatment for dandruff and seborrhoeic dermatitis... CONCLUSION: The study demonstrated that both CPO/SA and Nizoral were safe and effective in the treatment of dandruff and seborrhoeic dermatitis.

Clinical Trials Related to Nizoral Shampoo (Ketoconazole Shampoo)
Ketoconazole Foam 2% for the Treatment of Versicolor [Recruiting]
1. To assess the efficacy of ketoconazole 2% foam for the treatment of tinea versicolor
2. To assess the safety of ketoconazole 2% foam for the treatment of tinea versicolor
based on the occurrence of adverse events.
3. To assess treatment satisfaction as rated by patients
This will be a mono-centered, single arm, open-label pilot study. Ten adult patients age 19
and older with a clinical diagnosis of tinea versicolor, as well as a positive KOH using
calcofluor, will be enrolled at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. There will be 4
scheduled visits (baseline, week 1, week 2, and week 4). A target area will be identified
and mycological and clinical assessments will be performed at this site as well as a global
assessment of each subject. Ketoconazole 2% foam will be applied to all affected areas for 2
weeks with a follow-up visit at week 4. Skin scraping using a disposable #15 blade for
calcofluor/KOH assessment and photographs of target lesions will be performed at baseline,
week 1, week 2, and week 4. Photographs will be taken at baseline and at week 4 (only if KOH
is positive). Body surface area estimation of disease will also be performed at each visit.
Evaluation of scale, hyperpigmentation/erythema, and hypopigmentation using a 4 point scale
(0 = none, 1 = mild, 2 = moderate, 3 = severe) of the target area will be performed at
baseline, week 1, week 2, and week 4. A global assessment will be conducted at each visit
using the same 4 point scale. Patient questionnaires will be administered at baseline and
week 2 to assess symptoms and satisfaction with study medication.
Ketoconazole and Dexamethasone in Prostate Cancer [Recruiting]
This is an open label, phase II, single center trial of ketoconazole/dexamethasone to
determine if the administration of ketoconazole/dexamethasone, after disease progression
with ketoconazole/hydrocortisone slows or reverses disease progression in men with
progressive prostate cancer.
Seborrheic Dermatitis: Ketoconazole 2% Foam Versus Ketoconazole 2% Shampoo [Recruiting]
The aims of this study are to compare the effectiveness of antifungal foam versus antifungal
shampoo and determine patient compliance and satisfaction with both vehicles among African
American females with dandruff practicing less than once weekly hair washing.
Use of Low Dose Ketoconazole in Prostate Cancer That Does Not Respond to Hormone Therapy and Prior Chemotherapy [Recruiting]
The purpose of this study is to test the safety of ketoconazole and how well it works after
chemotherapy has been used. Ketoconazole at lower doses has been used for fungal infections
however has not yet been approved by the Food and Drug Administration for use in prostate
cancer. Ketoconazole has been used for many years at high doses for prostate cancer, and
this study will be to look at use of lower dose ketoconazole after someone has received
chemotherapy. Ketoconazole works by halting the production of steroids in your body,
including testosterone, and is thought to work directly on prostate cancer cells in
published lab studies.
177Lu Radiolabeled Monoclonal Antibody HuJ591 (177Lu-J591) and Ketoconazole in Patients With Prostate Cancer [Recruiting]
The purpose of this study is to test the effectiveness of the experimental drug, 177Lu-J591
in combination with ketoconazole and hydrocortisone against prostate cancer.
