A controlled triple open clinical study on three vaginal tablets - Econazole nitrate, Miconazole and Nystatin, was carried out. Seventy-five patients, aged between 18 and 45 years, presenting with mycologically proven cases of vaginal candidosis, met certain set criteria and were admitted into the study. Twenty-five patients were randomly assigned to each of the three treatment groups.
