Background: Successful topical treatment with deep penetration of toenail onychomychosis remains hard as the delivery of effective degrees of antifungal drug to the site of action is very difficult. Purpose: To evaluate the efficacy and safety of terbinafine hydrochloride 1% iontophoresis for treatment of toenail onychomychosis. Methods: Forty patients (23 male and 17 female) with mean age 46.15 ± 7.72 and with mild-to-moderate toenail onychomycosis of the big toe, were enrolled in a…

Review of antifungal therapy and the severity index for assessing onychomycosis: Part I
TLDR
This review outlines recent data on treatment modalities and outcomes with antifungal therapy in onychomycosis and itraconazole is suggested as being the most cost‐effective therapy.
Iontophoretic Terbinafine HCL 1.0% Delivery Across Porcine and Human Nails
TLDR
It is demonstrated that an optimal electrolyte concentration (1% NaCl or KCl) is required for an effective delivery of terbinafine and there is a significant increase in drug delivery into the nail and into the receiving compartment in the presence of 3% DMSO.
Ungual and trans-ungual iontophoretic delivery of terbinafine for the treatment of onychomycosis.
TLDR
Results indicate that iontophoresis enhances the delivery of terbinafine into and through the nail plate and suggest that the use of this treatment approach could result in a safe and more efficacious outcome with less frequent treatments.
Toenail onychomycosis: current and future treatment options
TLDR
Current oral, topical, and surgical treatment options for toenail onychomycosis are reviewed, finding oral terbinafine is the treatment of choice because of its high efficacy, low relapse rates, and cost‐effectiveness.
Trans-ungual iontophoretic delivery of terbinafine.
TLDR
The results of these studies indicate that iontophoresis could be developed as a potential technique for onychomycosis therapy and initial studies revealed that application of current could significantly enhance the trans-ungual delivery of terbinafine.
A Risk-Benefit Assessment of the Newer Oral Antifungal Agents Used to Treat Onychomycosis
TLDR
Each of the new antifungal agents is more cost-effective than griseofulvin for the treatment of onychomycosis and is associated with high compliance, in part because of the shorter duration of therapy.
Iontophoresis mediated in vivo intradermal delivery of terbinafine hydrochloride.
TLDR
Iontophoresis of TH may be useful in delivering higher drug levels more rapidly into the superficial and deep seated skin infection sites to form a depot providing sustained release.

    Expert opinion on drug delivery
  • 2007
TLDR
The first ever symposium dedicated solely to drug delivery to the nail following topical application was held on the 2nd April 2007, in London, UK, and provided a much-needed forum for the presentation and discussion of research and problems in this emerging field.
The OnyCOE-t™ questionnaire: responsiveness and clinical meaningfulness of a patient-reported outcomes questionnaire for toenail onychomycosis
TLDR
The OnyCOE-t™ questionnaire, a questionnaire specifically designed to measure patient-reported outcomes (PRO) associated with toenail onychomycosis, was shown to be reliable and valid and responsiveness was good.
Onychomycosis: diagnosis and definition of cure.
TLDR
The definition of onychomycosis is reported, which delineates both primary and secondary criteria for diagnosis of onYchomyCosis and identifies clinical and laboratory parameters to define a resolved fungal nail infection.
