Antifungal Applications

Toenail fungus (Onychomycosis) is a common fungal infection found at the root of the nail. Onychomycosis is common in the adult population, with up to 25% rate and increasing incidence in elderly people. Approximately 300 million people are affected by Onychomycosis.

It is acquired through contact usually in a humid or moist environment (swimming pool, lockers rooms) and is very tenacious.

Common symptoms include thickening of the nail, discoloration and abnormal shape of the nail, pain in toenails, ingrown toenails with significant risk to diabetic patients, those with Peripheral Vascular Disease or who are immunocompromised.

Existing treatments are limited and contain significant drawbacks, with extremely low efficacy, high recurrence rate and low patient compliance. Some of the existing medications suffer from harsh side effects such as liver toxicity and GI upset.
