Drug Information available for: Terconazole

Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: Terconazole vaginal gel
One applicator full at bedtime
Drug: Terconazole
Placebo Comparator: Gel vehicle
One applicator full at bedtime
Drug: Placebo

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Clinical Cure as Assessed by the Investigator at the Test-of-cure Visit [ Time Frame: 7-14 days after beginning treatment ]
    The percentage of participants with clinical cure in each arm was compared. A clinical cure is defined as the resolution of all signs and symptoms attributable to vulvovaginal candidiasis

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Improvement/Cure of Individual and Cumulative Signs, Symptoms and Criteria for the Infection [ Time Frame: 7-14 days after beginning treatment ]
    Signs (edema, erythema, excoriation) and symptoms (itching, burning irritation) were each scored as absent (0), mild (1), moderate (2) or severe (3). A total sign score of 0-9 and total symptom score of 0-9 were combined for a total possible combined sign and symptom score of 0-18. Total median combined sign and symptom severity score was compared between arms at the test of cure visit. Lower scores at day 7-14 indicate improvement.

  2. Mycologic Cure [ Time Frame: 7-14 days after beginning treatment and at 21-30 days after beginning treatment ]
    Vaginal swabs were cultured for Candida species in a laboratory. A positive culture indicates presence of vaginal yeast and a negative culture indicates absence of vaginal yeast. A negative culture indicates mycologic cure.

  3. Number of Participants Reporting Complete Resolution of Symptoms by Test of Cure Visit [ Time Frame: 7-14 days after beginning treatment ]
    Subjects reported if symptoms completely resolved and the date of resolution. The percentage of participants reporting complete resolution of symptoms was compared between arms.

  4. Number of Participants With Treatment Emergent Adverse Events [ Time Frame: Any time during study participation (up to 30 days) ]
    Adverse events were collected at study visits, from subject diaries and from spontaneous reports
