Efinaconazole topical solution (10%) for the treatment of onychomycosis in adult and pediatric patients.

Expert Rev Anti Infect Ther 2021 Jun 9. Epub 2021 Jun 9.

Mediprobe Research Inc., London, ON, CAN.

Introduction: Onychomycosis, a common nail disorder caused by fungal infection, can be managed pharmaceutically with oral or topical treatments. While oral treatments are often used first-line to treat nail infections, these systemic antifungals are not appropriate for all patients, and no oral treatments are approved for use in children in the USA. Given this need, topical antifungals were developed, which can be used as monotherapy or in combination with oral drugs. Read More

Expression of epidermal antimicrobial peptides is increased in tinea pedis.

Mycoses 2021 Jul 4;64(7):763-770. Epub 2021 May 4.

Department of Dermatology, Venerology and Allergology, Quincke Research Center, University-Hospital Schleswig-Holstein, Campus Kiel, Kiel, Germany.

Background: Tinea pedis is often chronic or recurrent, but not all individuals are equally susceptible to this infection. Dermatophytes are able to induce the expression of antimicrobial peptides and proteins (AMPs) in human keratinocytes and certain AMPs can inhibit the growth of dermatophytes.

Objective: The focus of this study was to analyse the secretion of relevant AMPs, especially RNase 7, human beta-defensin-2 (hBD-2) and the S-100 protein psoriasin (S100A7), in patients with confirmed tinea pedis. Read More
