ABSTRACT: A multicentric study was conducted to determine the sensitization potential of sisomicin sulphate 0.1 percent cream. During this first study of its kind it was found that this new topical antibiotic cream has a very low potential to cause skin sensitization. Only 0.64 percent of test sites had a weak positive reaction on the "Patch Test" after 4 days of application of the patch.
