Onychomycosis Pipeline Drugs Assessment


Onychomycosis is a fungal infection of fingernails or toenails, known as tinea unguium. Onychomycosis is common and occurs in about 10% of adult population. Nail changes may include, change in shape, brittleness, discoloration, debris trapped under the nail, detachment and thickening of the nail. Physicians can identify fungal nail infection by performing an examination most oftime. A sample may be taken from the debris beneath the nail and examined microscopically or cultured for possible fungal growth. Oral medications are generally required and sometimes they are combined with nail removal and/or application of nail lacquer. Presently available oral antifungal medications include: terbinafine, itraconazole, and fluconazole taken daily, in pulse or weekly, respectively.
