The safety and efficacy of oxiconazole nitrate (OxistatTM) cream was studied in 44 tinea pedis patients, who were enrolled in a double-blind, randomized, parallel and controlled trial over a 28 day time period. Patients who met the inclusion criteria were enrolled in the study given 1 % oxiconazole nitrate cream or 2% ketoconazole cream randomly. Assessment criteria included the clinical signs and symptoms of the target lesion (pruritus, burning, fissures, scaling, crusting, erthema, maceration) , physician's gross assessment of response to therapy, patient subjective assessment, and adverse events. Both drugs were administered using a once-daily topical application. Adverse effect was not observed in applicators of both groups. Significant differences in the degree of improvement of signs and symptoms of the target lesion were noted on day 29 days of treatment
