  • Clinical cure rate [ Time Frame: 4 weeks (on average) ]
    Clinical cure rate based on Amsel criteria, where cure was defined as clue cells being negative and not more than one of the other criteria positive

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Treatment failure [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
    Treatment failures include non-responders and recurrences

  • Incidence of ADRs [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
