SVT-15652 is an otic solution of clotrimazole. SVT-15652 is a broad spectrum antimycotic or antifungal agent. Clotrimazole acts primarily by damaging the permeability barrier in the cell membrane of fungi.
The incidence of otomycosis is not known but it is more common in hot climates and in those who partake in aquatic sports. About 1 in 8 of otitis external infections is fungal in origin. 90% of fungal infections involve Aspergillus spp. and the rest Candida spp. The prevalence rate has been quoted as 10% of patients presenting with signs and symptoms of otitis externa [1].
