Oravig (Miconazole) - Summary



ORAVIG (miconazole) buccal tablets are applied topically to the gum once daily and release miconazole as the buccal tablet gradually dissolves. Miconazole is an imidazole antifungal agent.

ORAVIG is indicated for the local treatment of oropharyngeal candidiasis (OPC) in adults.

Efficacy and tolerability of sertaconazole nitrate 2% cream vs. miconazole in patients with cutaneous dermatophytosis. [2011.05]
Sertaconazole is a new antifungal agent. To compare the efficacy and tolerability of sertaconazole and miconazole cream in cutaneous dermatophytosis, this prospective, randomized, multicentric comparative, phase 4 study was undertaken in 260 patients with cutaneous dermatophytosis after approvals from Institutional Ethics Committees...

Miconazole oral gel increases exposure to oral oxycodone by inhibition of CYP2D6 and CYP3A4. [2011.03]
Our aim was to assess the effect of miconazole oral gel on the pharmacokinetics of oral oxycodone. In an open crossover study with two phases, 12 healthy volunteers took a single oral dose of 10 mg of immediate-release oxycodone with or without thrice-daily 85-mg miconazole oral gel treatment... Miconazole oral gel produces a rather strong inhibitory effect on CYP2D6, which deserves further study.

Randomized, comparative, double-blind, double-dummy, multicenter trial of miconazole buccal tablet and clotrimazole troches for the treatment of oropharyngeal candidiasis: study of miconazole Lauriad(R) efficacy and safety (SMiLES). [2010.07]
BACKGROUND: Oropharyngeal candidiasis (OPC) is the most common opportunistic infection among persons infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Once-daily miconazole 50 mg buccal tablet (MBT) is a novel delivery system using an extended-spectrum azole with potent in vitro activity against many Candida species, including some that may be resistant to other azoles... CONCLUSIONS: In this large trial, once-daily MBT was shown to be noninferior to CT 5 times daily in the treatment of OPC in HIV-positive patients. MBT offers an effective, safe, and well-tolerated topical treatment option for OPC administered as a convenient once-daily dose.

Antimicrobial central venous catheters in oncology: efficacy of a rifampicin-miconazole-releasing catheter. [2010.04]
CONCLUSION: Immunocompromized patients suffering from cancer, transplantation, and dialysis patients with a long-term vascular access may mostly benefit from rifampicin-miconazole-releasing catheters.

Clinical Trials Related to Oravig (Miconazole)

Efficacy of Slow Release Clotrimazole Varnish Treating Denture Stomatitis Comparing to Traditional Treatment of Troches [Not yet recruiting]
Background: Oral candidiasis is most frequently found among the elderly .It is accompanied with oral pain, irritation, burning sensation. In addition, the altered taste sensation may cause nutrition compromise, which may affect ones diet. Management of superficial oral Candida is usually achieved by treatment with clotrimazole, a fungi static drug which is given five times per day with instruction to slowly suck on it with out the dentures.

Working hypothesis and aims: Management of oral candidiasis is feasible. The major disadvantage of the mode of action now days is the substantively of the drug in the oral cavity and patient compliance. A sustained release varnish which is easily applied on the dentures, which also release the anti fungal drug for at least a day, may overcome some of the pit falls of the treatment applied today.

Based on our past experience, in developing local sustained release varnishes for dental use, we anticipate that we can also formulate a special anti fungal sustained release varnish which will fit the special and unique needs of the elderly population.

Methods: Sustained release varnish will be developed in our laboratory. The kinetics of release (using HPLC) and antifungal activity (Bioassays) will be examined in vitro. The formulation showing the optimal results will be tested on human subjects with oral candidiasis. The efficacy of the varnish will be examined clinically (reduction in symptoms), microbiology (reduction of oral fungal), pharmaceutically (release kinetics in vivo).

Expected results: The clinical out come of one time varnish application will be improved compared to the five times application of lozenges (used today). The severity of the disease should decrease and the healing period should be shorten drastically.

Importance: This is a novel pharmaceutical development of a local application of a dental varnish designed specially to the elderly population

Topical Metronidazole and Miconazole Co-formulated Vaginal Suppositories for Preventing Vaginal Infections in HIV-seronegative Women [Recruiting]
This research study is about vaginal infections such as bacterial vaginosis, yeast infections, and trichomoniasis. Usually, these infections can be treated with medication, but sometimes they come back after treatment. Researchers want to know if using vaginal suppositories can decrease the risk of vaginal infections. Participants will include 234 women who are sexually active (greater than or equal to 4 episodes of sex with men during the past month), HIV-negative, 18 to 45 years old, with bacterial infection [vaginosis and/or vulvovaginal candidiasis (VVC) and/or Trichomonas vaginalis] detected by laboratory testing at a screening visit. Women will receive vaginal suppositories containing drug or inactive ingredients (placebo). Participation in the study will be about 12 months. Study procedures include: urine and blood tests, physical exams, and questionnaires.

Clinical Trial of Hydroquinone Versus Miconazol in Melasma [Recruiting]
Melasma is an acquired discoloration of the skin characterized by brown colour changes commonly on the face. The duration of this double-blind clinical trial will be 12 weeks. The control group will receive treatment with topical Hydroquinone (4%), and the other group topical miconazole. Miconazol has antimelanotic properties and can be used as treatment for melasma patients. The estimated number of subjects to be recruited and randomized for the study is at least 30. The purpose of this study is determine if there is a difference in the effectiveness of these two agents. Melasma Area and Severity Index (MASI) score will be assessed at the beginning of the study and at weeks 4, 8, and 12. Photographs, colorimetry and histological assessment will be also evaluated. Occurrence of adverse effects will also be recorded.

Effectiveness of 3% Boric Acid in 70% Alcohol Versus 1% Clotrimazole Solution in Otomycosis Patients [Recruiting]
Otomycosis is a superficial fungal infection of the external ear canal. Patients should be treated with cleaning fungal debris combined with topical antifungal agent. There is wide range of topical antifungal agents. However, there is still no consensus of the most effective topical antifungal agents in treatment otomycosis is still lacking.

According to Thai National List of essential medicines for topical antifugal agents are:

- acetic acid (2% in aqueous and 2% in 70% isopropyl alcohol)

- boric acid (3% in isopropyl alcohol)

- gentian violet

- clotrimazole ear drop. But from literature review, there is no comparative study

between boric acid and clotrimazole solution before.

Objective is to compare the clinical effectiveness and adverse events of 1% clotrimazole solution versus 3% boric acid in 70% alcohol for the treatment of otomycosis.

Antifungal Locks to Treat Fungal-Related Central Line Infections [Recruiting]
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the usefulness of antifungal lock therapy with liposomal amphotericin B (Ambisome), in combination with systemic antifungal(s), in patients with catheter-related blood stream infections with fungal organisms, whose catheter has not been removed because of the continuing critical need for central line access. The primary group of potential patients will be those with intestinal insufficiency, including post-op small bowel transplant recipients.

The recommendation of the Infectious Disease Society of America is to remove all catheters with fungal infections and treat systemically for 14 days after the last positive culture. However, in certain intestinal failure patients, removal of an infected line might significantly reduce or eliminate intravenous (IV) access and create a life threatening situation. Thus, the investigators' aim is to determine the usefulness of antifungal lock therapy in intestinal failure patients whose catheter has not been removed. The investigators' hope is to salvage central line catheters rather than to remove them.
