A recent clinical study done by the UERM Memorial Medical Center Research team shows Difflam®, locally-available antiseptic throat lozenges with generic Benzydamine HCl + Cetylpyridinium Cl, significantly alleviates COVID-19 Sore Throat – as tested in COVID-19 Patients.

The In Vivo study was led by Dr. Jennifer M. Nailes, MD, MSPH, Vice-President for Research at UERMMMC, in collaboration with a team of medical experts, aiming to determine the real-world effectiveness of Difflam® antiseptic lozenges in treating the throat pain of COVID-19 patients under routine medical practice conditions.

The clinical study involved Filipino patients confirmed to have COVID-19 infection and experienced sore throat. Notably, the study participants reported accelerated recovery and significant relief from the discomfort associated with this common symptom, having been given Difflam® antiseptic lozenges with generic Benzydamine HCl + Cetylpyridinium Cl to relieve their throat pain. This real-world effectiveness study further supports the brand’s distinction as the Most Prescribed Sore Throat Brand by Doctors (Per IQVIA PMDI Data MAT 2022).

Complementing the study’s findings, Difflam® Philippines has launched the empowering “Push Your Best Self Forward” campaign, emphasizing the importance of prioritizing health and well-being in the transition to a post-pandemic era.
