PILOT STUDY

 ELECTROLYTIC PROCESS FOR

 THE TREAMENT OF ONYCHOMYCOSIS

 

 

Introduction

 

Study participants were accepted into the study based upon positive Laboratory findings of onychomycosis whether single or multiple nails were involved.  Each nail involved represents a treatment qualifier.  Biopsies were taken pre-treatment and post-treatment for companion and post-treatment biopsies were taken as close to the original biopsy site as possible.

 

Summary Results

 

Where onychomycosis is suspected and supported by laboratory finding the BNR Process has a positive effect on the infection by reducing it, slowing it and bringing about its elimination.

 

Proof of Concept  -  Case Study Participant Five

 

A 53 year old Hispanic male presenting with onychomycosis of the right hallux and 5th toe as well as the left 5th toe.  Condition has been persistent for the last 15 years and has been treated with a variety of treatments.  Clinically he presents with color and structural changes of the nail as well as generalized discomfort and difficulty finding comfortable shoes.  Pre-treatment biopsy reveals the following: 1) Right Hallux; onychomycosis PAS reaction and GMS stain demonstrates probable dermatophytes 2) Pattern of growth- total dystrophic pattern 3) Floris fungal growth. Right 5th toe; onychomycosis- PAS and GMS demonstrate rare fungal elements.  Left toe; 1) PAS reaction and GMS stain indicative of probable dermatophytes 2) Pattern of Growth- Subungual 3) Minimal fungal growth observed 4) Histopathological features indicative of chronic micro trauma.

 

A full treatment protocol was utilized and post treatment biopsies obtained which reveal the following: Right Hallux; PAS reaction and GMS stain demonstrate probable dermatophytes 2) Pattern of growth- Subungual 3) Minimal fungal growth observed 4) Histopathological features indicative of chronic micro trauma.  Right 5th toe; 1) Onychomycosis- PAS reaction and GMS stain demonstrate probable dermatophytes 2) Pattern of growth- Superficial 3) Minimal fungal growth observed. Left 5th toe; Onychomycosis- PAS reaction and GMS stain demonstrate probable dermatophytes 2) Pattern of growth- Subungual 3) Moderate fungal growth observed 4) Histopathological features indicative of chronic micro trauma.

“After an injury many years ago I have lived with pain in my split toe.  I have been unable to rid myself on the infection until I received this treatment.  I consider this treatment successful as I no longer have any pain”.

Proof of Concept  -  Case Study Participant Six

 

A 46 year old white male presenting with onychomycosis of the right hallux nail.  Condition has been present for many years and has been treated in a variety of ways most recently Laser Therapy.  He presents with the following clinical signs and symptoms: Changes in color and shape of the nail as well as increased thickness and growth direction changes additionally the condition is painful and interferes with his occupation as a dance instructor.  Pre-treatment biopsy reveals the following: 1) Onychomycosis- PAS reaction demonstrates probably dermatophytes 2) Pattern of growth-Subungual 3) Moderate fungal growth is observed 4) Histopathological features indicative of persistent micro trauma.

 

A full treatment protocol was then utilized and a post treatment biopsy obtained.  Post-treatment biopsy results were as follows: 1) Onychomycosis- PAS reaction indicates probable dermatophytes 2) Pattern of growth- indeterminate 3) Florid fungal growth 4) Histopathological features indicative of acute and chronic micro trauma.

“As a professional dance instructor I am on my feet all day and typically well into the night.  This painless and quick treatment has allowed me to teach without pain for the first time in years”.

Proof of Concept  -  Case Study Participant Two

 

A 50 year old Middle Eastern male presenting with onychomycosis of the Right Hallux, 2nd, 3rd,4th and 5th toes.  Condition has been present for eight years and has been topically treated in a variety of ways.  Participant presents with clinical signs and symptoms as follows; generalized discomfort difficulty wearing certain shoes changes in shape and color of the nails. Pre-treatment biopsy were taken and reveal the following; Right Hallux; 1) PAS reaction demonstrates probable dermatophytes 2) Pattern of growth- Moderate fungal growth.  Right 2nd toe; 1) Onychomycosis- PAS reaction demonstrates probable dermatophytes 2) Pattern of growth- Subungual 3) Rare fungal elements seen. Right 3rd toe; 1) Onychomycosis- PAS reaction demonstrates probable dermatophytes 2) Pattern of growth- indeterminate 3) Moderate fungal growth observed.  Right 4th toe; 1) Onychomycosis- PAS reaction demonstrates probable dermatophytes 2) Pattern of growth- Subungual 3) Minimal fungal growth observed.  Right 5th toe; 1) Onychomycosis- PAS reaction demonstrates probable dermatophytes 2) Pattern of growth- Subungual 3) Minimal fungal growth observed. 

 

A full treatment protocol was utilized and post-treatment biopsy revealed the following; Right Hallux; 1) Non-specific keratinization 2) PAS reaction and GMS stain fail to demonstrate fungal elements.  Right 2nd toe; 1) Onychomycosis- PAS reaction demonstrates rare fungal elements.  Right 3rd toe; Onychomycosis- PAS reaction demonstrates rare fungal elements.  Right 4th toe; Onychomycosis- PAS reaction demonstrates probable dermatophytes Growth pattern- Totally dystrophic.  Right 5th toe; Onychomycosis- PAS reaction demonstrates probable dermatophytes Pattern of growth- Subungual. Moderate fungal growth observed. Histopathological features indicative of chronic micro trauma.
