ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a study comparing the efficacy of placebo lozenges with 2, 4-dichlorobenzyl alcohol and Amylmetacresol (DCBA/AMC) lozenges in sore throat treatment, conducted by D. McNally and colleagues. It discusses the methodology adopted in the study including follow-up period, patients' age group, and dosage of investigated drugs. The study found DCBA/AMC lozenges to be more effective than placebos in sore throat caused due to upper respiratory tract infection (URTI).
