NB Therapeutics raising $1 million to fund nail fungus therapy

Nov 29, 2011

Share / Nov 29, 2011 at 5:31 PM Nitric BioTheraputics , a biopharmaceutical and medical device company, is raising $1 million to fund clinical trials of its drug-delivery therapy for onychomycosis, a type of nail fungus, according to the CEO of the company, Frank McCaney. The company filed a Form D filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission dated Nov. 29. The Bristol, Pennsylvania company is conducting phase 2 clinical trials using iontophoresis as a drug-delivery platform to treat onychomycosis —  one of the most common types of toenail and fingernail fungal infections, causing half of all nail disorders — and nongenital warts. Iontophoresis involves using electric currents to improve drug delivery through the skin and nails, a method the company says improves drug delivery since it can facilitate delivery of high concentrations of a medication in a single dose and is pain free for patients. Advertisement NuPathe also uses iontophoresis technology for its migraine patch . The second therapy is nitric oxide to treat fungal infections between digits, referred  to as tinea pedis, and skin and soft tissue infections. A regulatory molecule, varied concentrations of nitric oxide may have different effects, according to the company’s website. A significant challenge to obtaining the desired effect of nitric oxide is getting the right concentrations of the drug for a specific exposure. Among the company’s backers are Radnor, Pennsylvania-based New Spring Ventures , Quaker BioVenture s in Philadelphia and Cardinal Health spinoff CareFusion in Dublin, Ohio. Last year, NB Therapeutics raised $1.7 million of an ongoing funding round that was projected to reach $20 million . It had raised $1.7 million in 2009. Topics
