Abstract

The therapeutic effect of tromantadine hydrochloride was assessed in a double blind trial conducted against placebo on 38 patients with genital herpes. The substances were applied locally for 12 days and their therapeutic efficacy assessed on the basis of subjective and objective parameters. The active drug produced a much faster response than the placebo (p <0,05). The drug was generally well tolerated. It is concluded that tromantadine hydrochloride represents a real advance in the local treatment of genital herpes.
