Nystatin, neomycin sulfate, thiostrepton and triamcinolone acetonide ointment is an ointment in a non-irritating vehicle, a polyethylene and mineral oil gel base.
Each mL contains:
nystatin 100,000 units
neomycin sulfate (equivalent to neomycin base) 2.5 mg
thiostrepton 2,500 units
triamcinolone acetonide 1.0 mg
Nystatin, neomycin sulfate, thiostrepton and triamcinolone acetonide ointment is supplied in tubes of 1/4 fl.oz. (7.5 mL.), 1/2 fl. oz. (15 mL.), and 1 fl. oz. (30 mL.), each with an elongated tip for easy application and in dispensing bottles of 8 fl. oz. (240 mL.). The preparation is intended for local therapy in a variety of cutaneous disorders of cats and dogs; it is especially useful in disorders caused, complicated, or threatened by bacterial and/or candidal (monilial) infections.
By virtue of its four active ingredients, the ointment provides four basic therapeutic effects: anti-inflammatory, antipruritic, antifungal and antibacterial. Triamcinolone acetonide is a potent synthetic corticosteroid providing rapid and prolonged symptomatic relief on topical administration. Inflammation, edema, and pruritis promptly subside and lesions are permitted to heal. Nystatin is the first well tolerated anti-fungal antibiotic of dependable efficacy for the treatment of cutaneous infections caused by Candida albicans (monilia). Nystatin is fungistatic in vitro against a variety of yeast and yeast-like fungi including many fungi pathogenic to animals. No appreciable activity is exhibited against bacteria. Thiostrepton has a high order of activity against gram-positive organisms, including many which are resistant to other antibiotics; neomycin exerts antimicrobial action against a wide range of gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria. Together they provide comprehensive therapy against those organisms responsible for most superficial bacterial infections.
