About Nalox™ and nail diseases
Nalox™ is a topical treatment used to treat nail disease. Launched in the Nordic region in autumn 2010, it quickly became market leader. Nalox™ is a prescription free, over-the-counter product sold under the name Emtrix® in certain markets and under the name Kerasal® Nail in the U.S. Safety and efficacy have been demonstrated in several clinical studies including more than 600 patients.

Nail fungus is the most common nail disease and afflicts approximately 10% of the general population and increasing with age. The estimated global market potential exceeds USD 1 billion.
