In a study of 11 patients, fluorescein was used to track the spread of the JUBLIA vehicle.
JUBLIA vehicle was shown to reach the infected nail bed1†
Photos have not been retouched. Individual results may vary.
- Fluorescein was added to the vehicle solution to show the areas within the nail and nail bed where the solution was able to reach
- Photographs were taken 20-30 minutes after each application
- Two drops of the vehicle solution were applied only to the nail’s distal end. Unlike the JUBLIA application instructions, the vehicle in this study was not allowed to touch the top of the nail. For proper application instructions, click here1,3
