About Kerasal Nail and nail disease
Kerasal Nail™ is a topical treatment used to treat nail disease. Launched in late 2010, it quickly became the market leader in the Nordics and recently also the best-selling product in its category in the U.S. The international launch is under way via a proprietary sales organization in the U.S. and ten partners that hold rights for 50 markets, including the major EU markets, China, Turkey and Russia. Kerasal Nail™ is a prescription-free, over-the-counter product sold under the names Kerasal Nail™, Naloc™/Nalox™ and Emtrix®. Safety and efficacy have been demonstrated in several clinical studies including more than 600 patients. Kerasal Nail has a unique and rapid mechanism of action which brings visible improvements within 2-4 weeks of treatment. Nail fungus is the most common nail disease. The condition afflicts approximately 10 percent of the population and is more common among the elderly. It is generally recognized that there is a need for new efficacious and safe topical treatments.
