Evaluation of Furacin - S (nitrofurazone and Hydrocortisone Acetate) in the Treatment of Different Dermatoses
BN Banerjee, SB Mandal, AK Dutta
September-October 1975, 41(5):209-214
Nitrofurazone (Furacin) is well known for its antibacterial activity. Its topical application although quite effective, is often alleged to be associated with local irritation and sensitization. Hence a new product 'Furacin-s' incorporating hydrocortisone 1%, in Furacin, is tested in a clinical trial in impetigo, folliculitis, pompholyx, eczematoid, and seborrhoeic dermatitis with 3 other preparations, (Framycetin sulphate + Dexamethasone acetate -0.1% and Neomycin, Bacitracin, Polymyxin B sulf + Hydrocortisone 1% in a control study. A total of 190 cases divided into variable of number was studied. Results showed Furacin-s to be more effective and acceptable for treating impetigo and folliculitis. Pompholyx lesions with possible microbic background responded very satisfactory, the product gave comparatively poor result in cases of seborrhoeic and eczematoid dermatitis. No side effect was observed with Furacin-s. A routine bacteriological culture done in all the cases of and folliculitis showed that coagulase-positive staph aureus was the major pathogen in both these conditions.

Inject Placentrex in Scleroderma
F Handa, Rani Radha Aggarwal
September-October 1975, 41(5):187-189
We studied the effect of placentrex in 6 cases of scleroderma. Good results were seen in 3 patients. Two patients responded to Placentrex therapy but did not complete treatment and further follow-up could not be done. One case showed no change. On the whole, results were good. Significant point of this study was that no side effect of Placentrex was noted during prolortgod use.

Calcinosis Cutis Circumscripta
C Bhaskaran Syamala, D Prasanthamurthy
September-October 1975, 41(5):190-193
Twelve cases of eakinosis cutis circumscripta are presented. The available evidence suggest that the lesion is commonly seen in negroes and coloured races. Scrotum is the commonest site of calcinosis cutis circumscripta in males while extremities are the site in females. Although the localisation of the pathological process may be determined by local trauma and friction, the primary change may well be a change in ground substance which later calcifies.

Oral Tinidazole in the Treatment of Vaginal Trichomoniasis
C Phillips, SK Kalra
September-October 1975, 41(5):215-217
A new substituted nitromidazole, tinidazole, is compared with metronidazole in Trichomonal vaginitis. Tinidazole cured 93.3% cases with no undesirable side effects. Metronidazole cured 83.3% with side effects in 10% of cases. In the recommended dosage tinidazole is comparable to metronidazole in efficacy with additional advantage of better toleration
