Dechra reveals rebrand for leading dermatological treatment
An effective treatment for dermatitis from Dechra Veterinary Products is being relaunched with a new name, Isaderm®.
Isaderm, formerly known as Fuciderm® Gel, is a topical skin product used to treat surface pyoderma in dogs, including conditions such as acute moist dermatitis and skin fold dermatitis.
Isaderm contains Fusidic acid, which is highly effective against the bacteria Staphylococcus pseudintermedius, and the steroid betamethasone, which is both an anti-inflammatory and anti-pruritic, and helps to break the itch-scratch cycle.
Available as a white translucent gel in 15 g and 30 g tubes, Isaderm is a topical treatment which can be applied directly and stays on the affected area – the base of Isaderm is a carbomer gel which maintains contact on skin and wet lesions.
Dechra Dermatology brand manager Roger Brown said: “Fuciderm is one of our most popular products. As part of an international Dechra rebranding programme the name will now be Isaderm® but veterinary professionals can be assured that the only thing about the product that has changed is the name.
“This treatment was the subject of a multi-centre UK trial* comparing treatment of surface pyoderma with the gel or systemic therapy, and the gel product was shown to be as effective as systemic therapy.”
