Topical medications to treat tinea unguium have lacked efficacy (1, 2), and there has been a recent drive to improve ungual drug delivery by the development of nail-specific penetration enhancers (3,–5). In this study, the ability of 10% (wt/wt) miconazole nitrate combined with a penetration enhancer formulation to permeate the nail was demonstrated by the use of a selection of in vitro nail penetration assays.
Three different assays were used to test permeation by enhanced miconazole nitrate solution…
