SIDE EFFECTS

Clinical Trials Experience

Because clinical trials are conducted under widely varying conditions, adverse reaction rates observed in the clinical trials of a drug cannot be directly compared to rates in the clinical trials of another drug and may not reflect the rates observed in practice.

During clinical trials, 760 subjects were exposed to naftifine 1% and 2% cream formulations. A total of 421 subjects with tinea pedis and/or tinea cruris were treated with NAFTIN (naftifine hydrochloride) Cream, 2%. In two randomized, vehicle-controlled trials (400 patients were treated with NAFTIN (naftifine hydrochloride) Cream, 2%). The population was 12 to 88 years old, primarily male (79%), 48% Caucasian, 36% Black or African American, 40% Hispanic or Latino and had either predominantly interdigital tinea pedis or tinea cruris. Most subjects received doses once-daily, topically, for 2 weeks to cover the affected skin areas plus a ½ inch margin of surrounding healthy skin. In the two vehicle-controlled trials, 17.5% of NAFTIN (naftifine hydrochloride) Cream, 2% treated subjects experienced an adverse reaction compared with 19.3% of vehicle subjects. The most common adverse reaction (.1%) is pruritus. Most adverse reactions were mild in severity. The incidence of Adverse Reactions in the NAFTIN Cream, 2% treated population were not significantly different than the vehicle treated population.

Postmarketing Experience
