Condition vaginitis
Treatments polygynax®, gynodaktarin®, placebo
Phase phase 3
Sponsor Laboratoire Innotech International
Collaborator International Clinical Trials Association
Start date September 2015
End date August 2016
Trial size 659 participants
Trial identifier NCT02515656, 2014-001759-22, PGX 401-11


POLYGYNAX® is a broad spectrum combination of nystatin, neomycin and polymixin B indicated for the local treatment of vaginitis due to sensitive germs and treatment of non specific vaginitis of adults. POLYGYNAX® has been marketed in France since 1969.

Nevertheless, despite the well established use of POLYGYNAX®, there is no clinical study supporting the interest of the combinaison of antifungal and antibiotics agents versus antifungal agent alone.

The aim of this project is to demonstrate that POLYGYNAX® is more effective than miconazole in the treatment of women experiencing symptoms of infectious vaginitis.
