NovaBay's Aganocides Show Penetration and Efficacy in a Pre-Clinical Infected Human Nail Model of Onychomycosis
Date:10/30/2009

manifestations of the infection often have adverse social and occupational ramifications for affected patients. As such, onychomycosis is an infection that warrants an effective medical treatment. According to Podiatry Today, over 35 million people in the United States have onychomycosis. Estimates indicate that up to 50% of those affected by the disease do not receive treatment. Systemic treatments represent well over 80% of the market today, but have potential severe liver toxicity issues, and have shown to have relapse rates of 40% or higher.

About Aganocide Compounds

The Aganocide compounds are novel, proprietary, synthetic N-chlorinated antimicrobial molecules specifically developed by NovaBay to mimic the body's natural defense against infection. The Aganocide compounds maintain the biological activities while improving the stability of naturally occurring N-chlorinated antimicrobial molecules. These highly differentiated, first-in-class, small molecule, patented new chemical entities may deliver the same or better efficacy than currently used antibiotics without contributing to the growing rise of antibiotic-resistant bacterial strains. In preclinical testing, the Aganocide compounds have been shown to be highly effective against bacteria, including its multi-drug resistant strains (such as MRSA), viruses and fungi. They also have been demonstrated to be effective against bacteria in biofilms, which render most antibiotics ineffective. Aganocides have a broad therapeutic index while providing a high degree of potency and tolerability as well as dosing versatility and flexibility.
