NCI Drug Dictionary


polycarbophil/carbomer/glycerin/palm oil glyceride/mineral oil-containing vaginal moisturizer 
A commercial combination preparation that contains an adhesive polycarbophil polymer, which is used for vaginal lubrication. Polycarbophil is an insoluble compound that absorbs water and, after topical administration, adheres to vaginal epithelial cells. As a result, it helps both moisturize vaginal tissue and relieve the discomfort that is associated with vaginal dryness. Check for active clinical trials or closed clinical trials using this agent.
