March 03, 2010

Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center’s Elizabeth Billingsley, M.D., is studying the safety and effectiveness of a new experimental topically applied medication to treat mild to moderate toenail fungus. The medication will be compared to using a placebo, which has no active ingredients in it.

Men and women age 18-70 years old in good general health with a fungal infection of the toenail are able to volunteer for this research study. Participation includes 15 visits to the medical center over one year, applying the study medication daily, and completing a daily diary.

Compensation is provided.

This research study, IRB 32762, has been approved by the Institutional Review Board under federal requirements at Penn State Hershey Medical Center, Penn State College of Medicine.
