  • Objectives: To investigate the effect of different pH on the in vitro growth of Trichophyton rubrum (T. rubrum) and to study the pH achievable by a test product at various depths in a porcine nail model. Methods: T. rubrum was grown in Sabouraud dextrose broth of various acidic pH to determine the fungicidal level. A test product with active ingredient of acetic acid was applied to the porcine nails for 60 and 120 times and the pH at various depths of penetration was measured by pH metre… CONTINUE READING
