Nystatin is an antimycotic polyene antibiotic obtained from
Nystatin Vaginal Tablets, USP are effective for the local treatment of vulvovaginal candidiasis (moniliasis). The diagnosis should be confirmed, prior to therapy, by KOH smears and/or cultures. Other pathogens commonly associated with vulvovaginitis (Trichomonas and
Haemophilus vaginalis) do not respond to nystatin and should be ruled out by appropriate laboratory methods.

CONCLUSION: Considering the efficacy of garlic and lack of side effects for this
Randomised controlled trial of prophylactic fluconazole versus nystatin for the prevention of fungal colonisation and invasive fungal infection in very low birth weight infants. [2011.05]
BACKGROUND: Invasive fungal infections are a major cause of morbidity and mortality in preterm infants. The authors conducted the first prospective, randomised controlled trial of nystatin compared with fluconazole for the prevention of fungal colonisation and invasive fungal infection in very low birth weight (VLBW) neonates... CONCLUSIONS: Prophylactic nystatin and fluconazole reduce the incidence of colonisation and invasive fungal infection in VLBW neonates. The authors believe that nystatin is an alternative to fluconazole, because nystatin is safe, inexpensive, well tolerated and effective.
Oral sustained release nystatin tablets for the treatment of oral candidiasis: formulation development and validation of UV spectrophotometric analytical methodology for content determination. [2010.05]
OBJECTIVE: In this study, oral sustained release mucoadhesive nystatin tablets were developed to increase nystatin contact time with the oral cavity and mask its unpleasant taste... CONCLUSION: The oral nystatin tablets developed showed to present faster therapeutic response than the oral aqueous solution through the preliminary clinical assays. The UV absorption spectrophotometry method showed to be an attractive test for the usual routine in the pharmaceutical industry.
Comparison of fluconazole and nystatin oral suspensions for prophylaxis of systemic fungal infection in very low birthweight infants. [2010.01]
We compared the efficacy and safety of fluconazole and nystatin oral suspensions for the prevention of systemic fungal infection (SFI) in very low birthweight infants. A prospective, randomized clinical trial was conducted over a 15-month period, from May 1997 through September 1998, in 80 preterm infants with birthweights <1500 g...
Prevention of fungal peritonitis with nystatin prophylaxis in patients receiving CAPD. [2007.09]
OBJECTIVE: Fungal peritonitis (FP) is a serious complication of continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD), being associated with significant morbidity and mortality. The role of nystatin prophylaxis during antibiotic therapy in the prevention of FP remains controversial, especially in programs with a modest or low baseline FP rate. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effect of nystatin prophylaxis on the occurrence of FP in programs with a relatively modest baseline FP rate... CONCLUSION: Oral nystatin prophylaxis might prevent the occurrence of AR-FP in CAPD patients, resulting in a trend toward reduction in the incidence of FP even in programs with a modest baseline FP rate. A large scale, prospective, randomized controlled trial is needed to further examine this issue.
Clinical Trials Related to Nystatin Vaginal
Gentian Violet Vs. Nystatin Oral Suspension for Treatment of Oropharyngeal Candidiasis [Completed]
The purpose of this study was to see which one of two medicines (topical gentian violet [GV]
or nystatin oral suspension) was better than the other in treating Oral Candidiasis (OC).
This was measured by whether the study participant still had OC or sores in his/her mouth
after 14 days of treatment. Also, safety and tolerability of GV and nystatin in the
treatment of OC were assessed.
Effect of Aqueous Extract of Garlic and Nystatin Mouthwash in Denture Stomatitis [Completed]
The aim of the present study was to compare the effect of aqueous extract of garlic with
nystatin mouthwash in denture stomatitis.
