A cost analysis of topical drug regimens for dermatophyte infections.
- To examine the extra cost of using higher-priced drugs as initial therapy for dermatophyte infections, because the many available effective drugs vary considerably in cost.
- Cost analysis from the purchaser's perspective, comparing two prototypical regimens to treat tinea pedis : one in which all patients initially receive a lower-priced drug and those with unresponsive infections receive a higher-priced drug at a follow-up office visit, and one in which all patients receive the higher-priced drug from the outset.
The reference drug was miconazole, an imidazole available without a prescription, for which reported overall efficacy rates are 70% to 100%.
