The clinical study results of this new product, Earwax MD™, demonstrated success at cerumen removal when used in combination with irrigation. This efficacy translated into a dramatic reduction in symptoms for these patients and should be considered for both in-office and at-home treatment of impacted cerumen. In addition, evidence suggests prophylactic benefits in patients with chronic cerumen accumulation.
The results from laboratory studies using samples of human cerumen (earwax) showed that Earwax MD™ rapidly and effectively disintegrated the samples when compared to currently marketed products containing peroxide. The time course for cerumen disintegration demonstrated that Earwax MD was statistically superior in breaking down cerumen samples, and started working in as short as 5 minutes.
