From the manufacturer

1. Published Clinical Data

Blanchard CL et al1 has conducted an independent study and reported the up to 8 hours relief effect of an ointment that contained a mixture of menthol, camphor and eucalyptol. This has been reported in the Eye, Ear, Nose and Throat journal (Blanchard CL, Borsanyi SJ, Grubb TC. 1964. Evaluation of Nasal Decongestion Drugs. Eye Ear Nose Throat Monthly. 143: 76-82.).

Study method: The authors carried out a double-blind crossover investigation over a three-year period on patients with colds or hay fever at the University of Maryland, Department of Otolaryngology, and at a private clinical laboratory. Subjects at the University of Maryland were selected clinic patients, while at the private laboratory subjects were obtained from the local population.

Seven and half gram of ointment containing a mixture of aromatic substances menthol, camphor and eucalyptol was rubbed on the chests of 50 subjects with colds and nasometer readings taken at 5, 15 & 30 minutes, 1, 2, 4, 8 & 10 hours (Note: a nasometer is an instrument used to measure and give feedback on the presence of nasality in speech production that may be induced by nasal congestion). As control, a similar quantity of petrolatum was rubbed on the chests of 15 of the same subjects with colds on the alternate day and nasometer readings were recorded at the same intervals. All tests comparing the effect of the medication were conducted by a cross-over design on the same subjects. All results were calculated as percent of change compared with the initial (pretreatment) reading.

Study result:

  • • Definite nasal decongestion effect was obtained in those who received the inunction of aromatic substances, and it persisted to a significant degree up to 8 hours after application.
  • • In subjects receiving petrolatum, average percent change in nasometer readings did not show decongestion (+7.62% and -15.63%, petrolatum and ointment treatment, respectively; p< 0.05, statistically significant).
  • • It should be noted that the tested ointment contained the same substances menthol, camphor and eucalyptol found in VapoRub.

2. Other Clinical Studies In addition, there were two clinical studies2 to evaluate objective (Nasal Airway Resistance/ Rhinometry) and subjective (6 point scale) measures of nasal congestion using standard methodology. In agreement with the published data, VapoRub was found to provide up to 8 hours long lasting relief from nasal congestion due to cold. Study method: Briefly, a total of ninety adult ‘coryzal rhinitis’ (common cold) patients with objective (by rhinoscopic and rhinomanometric assessment) nasal congestion were recruited. The patients were treated with VapoRub or Petrolatum or “No treatment” on each of the 2 days. Two teaspoons of treatment were applied to the chest, throat & back for 15 seconds. The patients were assessed 15, 30 minutes, 1, 2, 4 and 8 hours post application of VapoRub. Comparisons were made between VapoRub and placebo groups, and VapoRub and No Treatment groups. Study result:

  • • The correlation between the objectively measured and subjectively measured reductions in nasal congestion were statistically significant (p<0.05).
  • • Within the treatment group, VapoRub significantly reduced nasal congestion up to 8 hours. Placebo and No Treatment did not have significant changes in Nasal Airway Resistance.
  • • When compared between treatment groups, VapoRub significantly reduced Nasal Airway Resistance up to 8 hours when compared to Placebo and No Treatment groups.
  • • The study also showed that VapoRub was significantly superior to placebo at all times assessed indicating a clinically relevant sensation of relief for up to 8 hours.
