Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The Test of Equivalence Between the Test and Reference Products Was Based on the Therapeutic Cure Rates at Visit 3/Test-of-Cure. [ Time Frame: Visit 3: Day 22-31 ]
    Therapeutic cure is defined as both the mycologically-proven eradication of infection caused by Candida species (mycological cure) and evidence of clinical success (clinical cure)

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Clinical Cure [ Time Frame: Visit 3: Day 22-31 ]

    Clinical cure (clinical success) was defined as follows:

    1. All signs or symptoms with a score of 1 (mild) or 2 (moderate) at Visit 1/Baseline had a score of 0 (absent) at Visit 3/Test-of-Cure, or all signs or symptoms with a score of 3 (severe) at Visit 1/Baseline had a score of 0 (absent) or 1 (mild) at Visit 3/Test-of-Cure
    2. A new sign or symptoms was observed at Visit 3/Test-of-Cure that was not present at entry and was determined by the investigator to not be related to VVC (if related, the subject was considered a failure; if not related, the subject could have been considered a cure)
    3. The subject did not require additional vulvovaginal or systemic antifungal therapy
    4. The subject did not use any topical drug therapy other than the study medication for the treatment of vulvovaginal irritation and/or pruritus, such as topical analgesics or corticosteroid products

  • Mycological Cure [ Time Frame: Visit 3: Day 22-31 ]
    Mycological cure was defined as a negative mycological culture (no growth)
