Keraderm to Release $100 Phototherapy Treatment for Fungal Nail Infections
Date:9/17/2008

HAMPTON, Va., Sept. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Keraderm, a leader in the development of phototherapy treatments for infections, plans to introduce a $100 phototherapy treatment for fungal nail infections (onychomycosis) in 2009 upon completion of their current pivotal trials and pending marketing clearance from the FDA.

"Our goal," states Keraderm CEO Bill Cumbie, "is to develop a safe and effective treatment for onychomycosis that can be accessed by a large number of people at a low cost. Many people cannot use current medications due to their high cost, significant side effects, and contraindications while taking other medications. Our pilot clinical trials have indicated the efficacy of the best oral medications with no significant side effects. We will establish the safety and efficacy of our treatment with our current pivotal clinical trials which will be submitted to the FDA for approval as the first phototherapy treatment for onychomycosis. The beauty of our treatment is that it can be delivered easily and inexpensively. We hope to introduce our treatment in 2009 at $100 for several treatments and continue to improve the technology so that eventually only one treatment in the $100 range will be necessary. We are also working to establish insurance reimbursement for our therapy which will further reduce cost to the consumer."

Keraderm is well on the way to being the first phototherapy treatment approved by the FDA for onychomycosis with its research published in the prestigious peer-reviewed British Journal of Dermatology and presented at the 2007 World Congress of Dermatology and the 2008 Annual Conference of the American Academy of Dermatology. Keraderm also has a growing portfolio of national and international patents that protect the key aspects of its proprietary platform technology to treat infections.
