Study Efficacy and Safety in Comparative Use of Investigational Product Adjuvant Treatment in Onychomycosis

Overview

Single-center study, single blind, comparative with the objective of evaluating the efficacy and safety of an investigational product as an adjunct in the treatment of onychomycosis improvement of 90 days ± 2 days.

Study Type

  • Study Type: Interventional
  • Study Design
    • Allocation: Randomized
    • Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
    • Primary Purpose: Supportive Care
    • Masking: Single (Investigator)
  • Study Primary Completion Date: August 2017

Interventions

  • Device: Nailner 2 in 1
    • Nailner 2 in 1 is a combination of assets that alter the pH of the nail and is used as an adjunct in the treatment of onychomycosis.
  • Drug: Ciclopirox 8%
    • Ciclopirox 8% is a glaze used in the treatment of onychomycosis

Arms, Groups and Cohorts

  • Experimental: Nailner 2 in 1 + Ciclopirox 8%
    • Patients should apply Nailner 2 in 1 daily in the affected nail 2X a day, morning and night for 30 days. After 30 days passed to apply only 1x daily. No need to sand the nail before the application and the product should be applied on the entire nail, including the sides and the area affected by ringworm. Avoiding wett the nail after application and expose the nail. They should also apply ciclopirox 8% nail polish in the first month of treatment every other day (day in and day out). In the second month applied twice a week. In the third month applied once a week. Apply on the affected nails, previously sanded. On the application of two products, Ciclopirox should be applied between the investigational product applications, e.g., in the middle of the day and the investigational product at the beginning and end of the day in the sun.
  • Active Comparator: Ciclopirox 8%
    • Patients should also apply ciclopirox 8% nail polish in the first month of treatment every other day (day in and day out). In the second month applied twice a week. In the third month applied once a week. Apply on the affected nails, previously sanded. On the application of two products, Ciclopirox should be applied between the investigational product applications, e.g., in the middle of the day and the investigational product at the beginning and end of the day in the sun.

Clinical Trial Outcome Measures

Primary Measures

  • Percent of improvement of mycosis by reducing the area of the lesion that will be measured at times D1 and D90
    • Time Frame: 90 days
    • The improvement rate will be by measuring the area of the nail affected in millimeters (millimeters). The measurement will be taken with a ruler in the direction of the width and length of the lesion (mm2)

Secondary Measures

  • Presence of fungal structures in nail affected by onychomycosis in visits 1 and final through mycological examination
    • Time Frame: 90 days
    • Through clinical observation
  • Number of patients reporting reduction in discomfort caused by onychomycosis through a subjective evaluation questionnaire
    • Time Frame: 45 and 90 days
    • Through the patient’s subjective evaluation
  • Number of adverse events reported and related to the product investigational
    • Time Frame: 90 days
    • Through the spontaneous report of the patients of events occurred during the study
