The investigation was designed to compare a new aqueous fusidic acid paediatric suspension with the currently available oily suspension of diethanolamine fusidate.
Unanimous preference for the palatability of the new aqueous suspension.
50% gastro-intestinal intolerance of the oily suspension as compared with 15% mild intolerance of the new aqueous preparation.
Elimination of nasal Staphylococcus aureus carrier state in 3 subjects during aqueous suspension therapy.
Urinary albumin levels consistently below 10 mg./100 ml. in 185 out of 187 urine samples taken during the trial.
Comparison of Fucidin blood levels in 7 additional healthy adult volunteers following administration of the two different suspensions showed that similar concentrations were obtained with both preparations. December 1969.
